The Space Alien, always concerned for the health and well-being of human friends, has decided that the best "special day" to feature this October would be Global Handwashing Day on October 15.

Here is some information about this special day:

October 15 is Global Handwashing Day, a global advocacy day dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about the importance of handwashing with soap as an effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives. 

This year’s theme, “Our Future is at Hand – Let’s Move Forward Together,” calls for collective action. This community forum serves as a conversational space that curates, collects, and maintains resources, blogs, and content for Global Handwashing Day.

Global Handwashing Day is sponsored by UNICEF,  USAID, and, not surprisingly, by major soap manufacturers as well.  Learn more about supporters of this special day at:

At this precarious time, the Space Alien gently reminds Loyal Readers: Wash Your Hands!
