Draw a Picture of a Bird Day
April 8 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Origin of “Draw a Picture of a Bird Day”:
On April,1943, 7 year old Dorie Cooper visited her uncle in the hospital. He had been injured in WWII, having lost his leg to a land mine. She asked him to draw a picture of a bird. He did, and she teased him saying it wasn’t a very good picture, but she would hang it in her room. This lifted his spirits. Three years later, Dorie was struck and killed by a car. At her funeral there were many bird pictures and drawings, prompting the creation of this day.
According to the Draw a Bird Day website, this day was created as a way to express joy in the very simplest of things in life and as a way to help soldiers everywhere forget war and suffering even if only for a short time
