Let’s celebrate International Children’s Day!

By Karin Price, contributing author

Growing up in Asia meant my family celebrated children’s day. When I was 10 years old, we lived in the United States for a year. Imagine how surprised I was to find out that Americans did not have a children’s day.  My mom said, “Karin, in America every day is children’s day.”

In 1924, the World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva, Switzerland, proclaimed June 1 to be International Children’s Day. After the conference, different governments around the world decided to declare a day as International Children’s Day to draw attention to children’s issues.  Today Dillon International joins others to honor children globally.
