Go Barefoot Day, Flip a Coin Day, Say Something Nice Day, Madaraka Day, more

June 1st, 2011, is National Go Barefoot Day, Flip a Coin Day, Pen Pal Day, Say Something Nice Day, Dare Day, Heimlich Maneuver Day, National Running Day, Madaraka Day, Stand for Children Day, International Children's Day, National Tailors Day, and National Hazelnut Cake Day.

National Go Barefoot Day, June 1st, kicks off Barefoot Week. The event is sponsored by Soles4Souls, which collects donations and distributes shoes to those in need.

Heads for yes, tails for no - will you celebrate Flip a Coin Day?

Pen Pal Day honors a somewhat old-fashioned hobby. Are Facebook friends the modern version of pen pals? How about Twitter followers?

You know, you have beautiful eyes. And you're so loyal - visiting my blogs day after day! Share some compliments on Say Something Nice Day.

Today is Dare Day, not D.A.R.E. Day. Dare to do something exiting, like disconnect from technology and explore reality!

Do you know how to perform the Heimlich Maneuver? Learn the technique online or in a class, just in case someone you care about starts to choke. You could save a life! Happy Heimlich Maneuver Day.

Whether you're a marathoner or someone thinking about adding a bit of activity to your day, grab your running shoes. Take part in National Running Day.

On June 1st Kenya celebrates Madaraka Day, the anniversary of the country's independence in 1963.

International Children's Day flag.
Stand for Children Day is a time to think about children in the world who lack basic needs, including safety, medical care, and education.

International Children's Day originated in 1925 in Geneva. Today the date is celebrated with festivals in many countries.

On National Tailors Day, give an extra tip to the person who hems your pantlegs and takes in your waistbands.

Today's foodie celebration is National Hazelnut Cake Day. Bake or buy - the choice is yours - or just schmeer some Nutella on any old cake!
