How to celebrate Fred Roger’s 1-4-3 (I-Love-You) Day today

What is 1-4-3 Day?

Today, May 23, 2019, is the first annual 1-4-3 Day in Pennsylvania, falling on the 143rd day of the year. Fred Rodgers often used 1-4-3 to mean “I love you”. The numbers represent the amount of letters in each word. Mr. Rogers was considered one of Pennsylvania’s kindest people and 1-4-3 Day is meant to help his kindness live on.

How to celebrate?

You celebrate by simply being kind to your neighbors. Today is an opportunity to be mindful of how we influence the people around us. Below I listed some ideas of how you can celebrate, some taken from pa.gov/143-day:

  • Buy someone coffee
  • Donate to a charity
  • Volunteer your time at a nursing home
  • Compliment a stranger
  • Call a friend or family member you haven’t spoken to in awhile
  • Leave a big tip for a server

I hope we can spread kindness throughout our neighborhood, not just today, but throughout the year. Let’s spread love throughout the city! For more information about 1-4-3 Day, visit pa.gov/143-day
