When is this day celebrated? October 22
Why was this day created? Every scar has a story. Some people have scars from the time they fell off the swingset. Some have open heart surgery scars. Some from cancer surgeries. Some from organ transplants or other life saving surgeries. National Scar Appreciation Day is a day to celebrate these scars while raising awareness for the things that gave them to us.
Who created this day? This day was founded by Justine Faeth in 2019.
How to celebrate:
- Post your scar story on social media, or post a story about someone else who has a scar.
- Link your post to raise money/awareness.
