Although we should celebrate this every single day, the National Day Calendar's site reminds us today is the official day :)
Each year on December 3rd National Roof Over Your Head Day is observed across the United States.
National Roof Over Your Head Day was created as a day to be thankful for what you have, starting with the roof over your head. There are many things that we have that we take for granted and do not stop to appreciate how fortunate we are for having them.
All across our nation, there are many that do not have the things that necessary to everyday life. They may lack a roof over their heads, enough food to eat or clothes to wear. For those who have those bare necessities, it may be insufficient.
The day reminds us to appreciate what you have. This day follows closely after Thanksgiving, a day to be thankful. So just like Thanksgiving, be thankful for what you do have and always remember, that it is a better feeling than worrying about what you do not have.
HOW TO OBSERVE #RoofOverYourHeadDay
To celebrate, pick a name or two off of a Christmas Giving Tree and make someone’s holiday a little better. Volunteer at or make a contribution to a homeless shelter in your area. Your gift may help someone else be able to have a “roof over their head” tonight. Use #RoofOverYourHeadDay to post on social media.
