We live in a world of well over seven billion people, meaning we are surrounded by individuals constantly. However, it is an unfortunate fact that many of us can feel alone, out of place and even anonymous within the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. Nametag Day has been doing its best to do away with this situation since this inception, allowing all of us to visually proclaim “Look at me!” to the world around us. Thanks to Name Tag Day, countless participants will wear a name tag to the office, while going shopping or during a visit to a new city every single year. Of course, some of these tags are simple while others are inventive and definitely worth a second glance.

Mother, sisters, wives, girlfriends and fiancees…what would we ever do without them? Nobody can honestly say we don’t owe an enormous amount to the women in our lives, from the mothers who made us chicken soup when we were sick as children, to the sisters who helped us decide what to wear on our first date, to the wives who somehow manage to juggle both a career and a family, never missing a beat. Women’s Day is all about celebrating these incredible people and showing them how much we love, respect and value them. This holiday is perhaps especially important in parts of the world where women are still forced to deal with shocking inequality on a daily basis and is meant to raise awareness of the challenges and struggles faced by these women. Women’s Day celebrates women’s history, highl
