National Roof Over Your Head Day

Monday, December 03, 2012

emoticon National Roof Over Your Head Day emoticon

When : Always December 3

Today is National Roof Over Your Head Day. It is a day of appreciation for the things we have, starting with the roof over our heads.

For most of us, a roof over our head signifies living in a house that protects us from the elements, keeping us warm, dry, and cozy. Unfortunately, not everyone is as lucky as you and I. There are many homeless people right here in our country. Some people live in a cardboard box on the street...... literally. There are millions of people around the world who live in poverty or disaster areas, and do not have a home to keep them comfortable and safe.

Spend a few minutes appreciating your roof and home today, along with the many things you have. And, also make a contribution to a homeless shelter, so others can come in out of the rain.

Happy National Roof Over Your Head Day!

Origin of National Roof Over Your Head Day:
Despite our diligent efforts, we have yet to find who created Roof Over Your Head, or Roof Over Your Head Day. Nor, did we find factual information about this day.

There was some reference to this as a "National Day". However, we found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.

    Having been homeless for several months last winter, I really appreciate my sister and brother in law taking me into thier home, and now I am on a disability pension and able to live in subsedised housing, I am so grateful......

I was much luckier than mostt, but I can still feel the dispair at knowing I could no longer work and support myself. Luckily, it was just me as I do not have any children.....

Thanks for bringing such an important day to the attention of many.
