Here’s how it works:
On Bubble Gum Day, everyone who donates 50 cents or more gets to chew gum in school, with proceeds going to any charity the school chooses. Kids have fun, while raising money for a good cause. Some creative teachers even incorporate bubble gum into their lessons for the day!
The celebration isn’t limited to schools – many libraries, community centers, and even businesses hold bubble gum day events. After all, why should kids have all the fun?
Started in 2006 by children’s book author Ruth Spiro, Bubble Gum Day has become a sweet success! We love getting letters and photos, so if you celebrate, please Tell us about it!
If your school or library plans a celebration, please let us know in advance. We frequently receive inquiries from reporters who want to cover local events! Contact Ruth Spiro for interview and speaking requests.
Check back for more updates in early 2019!
