MAY is a month full of International Awareness holidays. If you go online and look around, you will find that your country has dozens of these "holidays" for Awareness.
I find it funny that we have these holidays to encourage Awareness, yet none of us is really Aware that the holiday exists. LOL.
I gathered an extensive list of Awareness hoidays for another Scavenger Hunt. We can help spread the word about these observances and help encourage the world to be more sensitive and aware.
