National Condom Day
- National Condom Day originated from an AIDS support group in America during the late 1980s, with the purpose of promoting condom use and educating people about the need to practice safe sex.

Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Day
- Congenital Heart Disease is considered to be the most common birth defect and is a leading cause of birth-defect related deaths worldwide. Despite the fact CHD affects approximately 1.8 million families in the U.S., a relatively small amount of funding is currently available for parent/patient educational services, research, and support.

International Quirky Alone Day
- A do-it-yourself celebration of romance, friendship, and an independent spirit. It's a celebration of all kinds of love: romantic, platonic, familial, and yes, self-love. International Quirky Alone Day is not anti-Valentine's Day. It's NOT a pity party for single people. It's an alternative -- a feel-good alternative to the marketing barrage of Valentine's Day and an antidote to the silicone version of love presented in shows such as Hooking Up and The Bachelor.

National Donor Day/National Organ Donor Day (1998)
- A day to encourage people to sign up to donate their organs. It may save a life. National Donor Day was started in 1998 by the Saturn Corporation and its United Auto Workers partners with the support of the US Department of Health and Human Services and many nonprofit health organizations.

National Have a Heart Day
- The goal of this celebration of life is to create a new consciousness concerning the impact of our food choices on the environment, world hunger, animal welfare, and human health — especially heart health. Vegetarian diets increase longevity and help prevent—and even reverse—heart disease. Total vegetarians live about 15 years longer than non-vegetarians and suffer less than one-tenth of the heart disease death rate of non-vegetarians.

League of Women Voters Day (1920)
- While meeting in Chicago to celebrate the imminent ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, leaders of the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) approved the formation of a new organization—the League of Women Voters on February 14, 1920. With the vote for women just a few months away, the new organization was created to help American women exercise their new political rights and responsibilities.

National Cream-Filled Chocolates Day
- Cream-filled chocolates can be made in two ways. The first way is to make ganache and fondant, roll it into a ball and then dip the fondant into chocolate. Another way is to use a mold and put melted chocolate in the mold. Chocolate in molds is cooled by freezing. The molds are then filled with a cream filling and chocolate poured over the candy. Once the candy has cooled, it can be taken out of the mold.

Read To Your Child Day
- Just 20 minutes a day reading aloud with young children strengthens relationships, encourages listening and language skills to promote attention and curiosity and establishes a strong reading foundation. These skills are essential for success in school and in life. It takes hundreds of hours of lap time for a child to acquire the pre-literacy skills necessary for learning to read early and well. From birth to age five, the pleasant activity of listening to and talking about stories trains a child's brain, ears, and eyes for eventual success in learning to read.

National Call-In Single Day
- Singles all across the country are encouraged to pick up the phone, take a day off from work, and set aside some time for themselves. Nobody can love you like you, so make sure you love yourself a lot today. Then go on out and do things for YOU. Take a walk, laugh at passing couples walking hand-in-hand, eat copious amounts of chocolates, chase your shadow, just make sure you enjoy yourself.

Library Lovers Day
- A new era has begun with Library Lovers everywhere claiming the day for the objects of their special affection - Australia's libraries. People are devoted to their library and not just on one day of the year. Millions of library lovers across Australia must be right! No matter what type of library or information center you work in use your creative flair to help celebrate the day and have fun!
