Are You Aware

Updated on March 13, 2011

I decided to post as many National and International Awareness observations as possible for the entire year. I thought this would be a short list. I had no idea there were so many awareness observations throughout the year. Many organizations just promote their cause for only one day or perhaps a week during a given month. I compiled a list that only list month long observations. There are also many organizations that do not follow the "National Awareness" form and basic philosophical style. I tried to just focus on those that do. I also noticed while researching awareness months that there are many web sites with many lists and not all share the correct information pertaining to when an organization celebrates it's awareness month.

I also used Hubber's Hubs as backlinks to bring awareness to the HubPage community.

      Nah, I am not aware. Most of those are self serving interest groups that don't really deserve any publicity. IMHO. :)

      There are many levels of awareness and they are in octaves like sound. The broader awareness like "I am aware of celery" then sharper like "Hey where is my celery" then sharper like "god I am glad I am eating this celery" and it just goes on and on. Some of the best awareness is right here reading Figment.

      Wow! What a list! This is fun! First time I heard of such thing as a frozen food month or a termite awareness month, or a chili month. I could just imagine the names of the ones that celebrate only for a week or a day.

      Really fun! Thanks for sharing figment!

      Like Jared, "frozen food month" was a stand out for me, too. So were many others.

      This is an amazing compilation, figment. Good job. It certainly highlites for me how ridiculous it has all become. It's a shame, too, because the really good causes lose some of their impact due to the overuse of this type of commercialism.
