National Day Calendar® is the original and authoritative source for fun, unusual and unique National Days! Since our humble beginnings on National Popcorn Day in 2013, we have been tracking the National Days, National Weeks, National Months, and International Days. We became the first calendar of its kind to curate the days all in one place and tell their stories, too! Here at National Day Calendar, we are on a mission to Celebrate Every Day with you!  And by you, we mean families, businesses, educators, and strangers we meet on the street. There’s more than one day for everyone.

At National Day Calendar, we’ve found the National Days have a way of inspiring us. We’re honored to tell the stories behind the days and provide you with informational ways to incorporate the National Days into your business, family, schools, and home!

Become an ambassador Like Ricky and I and a slew of others! (Text me and I can help you get approved)

If you’re an instigator of fun or a glass half full kind of person, our Ambassador Program could be for you! 

We love our community of followers at National Day Calendar. Recognizing Celebrate Every Day means something different to everyone. This is why we are looking for people who are willing to share our passion in their own unique way.

You will make the perfect National Day Calendar Ambassador if you:

  • Celebrate Every Day®;
  • Have people ask you what national day it is; 
  • Already use National Day hashtags;
  • Have an established online presence;
  • Are friendly and approachable with an outgoing personality; and 
  • Conduct yourself at a high level of professionalism;

Our Ambassadors understand the value of connecting with the world by spreading a positive message. We want to partner with people who are willing to spread joy. Our Ambassadors are energetic and natural leaders. Let us help you expand your reach on social media. 

As an Ambassador, you will have a page with your story linked to the National Day Calendar website. We have a minimum requirement of a weekly post about a National Day to your Social Media accounts. However, we encourage you to do as much as you want!

Your Ambassador role can consist of live video, as well as images. We ask you to use National Day Calendar hashtags and @ mentions in your posts. In addition, we encourage you to wear our gear to start a conversation with anyone who notices that extra spring in your step. Founder Marlo Anderson has that opportunity everywhere he goes. He enjoys experiencing reactions to the phrase Celebrate Every Day!

If you feel you’re a natural connector, we invite you to represent us as an Official Ambassador. Use the form below to tell us about yourself. Submitting the form does not obligate you or National Day Calendar in any way.
