General Events:
National Evaluate Your Life Day
October 19, 2015 in the USA
Evaluate Your Life Day takes place on October 19, 2015. It might end up in a very philosophical event to celebrate Evaluate Your Life Day. But certainly it is a good idea to think deeply about your life – at least once a year. Evaluate Your Life Day invites to calm down and deliberate about the choices you took and which way you will keep on going.
There are always questions and thoughts that disappear in the daily hustle and bustle of life. But if you do not take the time to think about those things they will perhaps haunt you one day. Therefore it is better to lean back and confront the complicated questions of life on Evaluate Your Life Day.

Unity Day
October 19, 2015 in the USA
Unity Day, the signature event of National Bullying Prevention Month, has been recognized in the United States since 2011. To participate in Unity Day, individuals, schools, communities, and businesses wear or display orange to show support for students who have been bullied.
Unity Day was started by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center as a signature event of National Bullying Prevention Month. The call to action was to “Make it Orange and Make it End. Unite Against Bullying!” Participants were encouraged to wear orange to show their support for bullying prevention. Ellen DeGeneres participated in Unity Day in 2011 by wearing orange on her TV show, Ellen, and posting about the event on her website. Unity Day continued to gather support from individuals, schools, and celebrities.
