Bubble Gum Day, Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbors Day, more

February 7th, 2014, is Bubble Gum Day, Give Kids a Smile Day, National Wear Red Day, Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbors Day, Send a Card to a Friend Day, Ballet Day, Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, Independence Day (Grenada), and National Fettuccine Alfredo Day.

Bubble Gum Day is a fun and creative way to raise funds for charity. Simply offer the privilege of chewing gum in class or at the office, in exchange for fifty cents. All money is donated to a worthy cause. Everybody wins - gum lovers, people in need, and gum producers.

The American Dental Association sponsors Give Kids a Smile Day. Their goal is the elimination of cavities in children's teeth by the year 2020.

On National Wear Red Day, Americans are asked to wear red in a show of support for women's heart health.

Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbors Day is a catchy way of promoting harmony among neighbors. Nice idea.

On Send a Card to a Friend Day, send a traditional paper-and-envelope card or an e-greeting. The sentiment is what's important!

Ballet Day celebrates all things ballet, from dancing to watching a performance to collecting figurines. If you're really brave, wear a tutu too.

Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is meant to reduce the incidence of HIV/AIDS in the Black Community, via "education, testing, involvement, and treatment."

Grenada observes Independence Day on February 7th.

Celebrate National Fettuccine Alfredo Day with a big bowl of ribbony pasta coated with creamy, cheesy goodness. Deliziosissima!
