In 2011, the UN proclaimed the International Day of Friendship with the idea that friendship between peoples, countries, and cultures can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities.
The UN wanted for the day to involve young people, as future leaders, in community activities that include different cultures and promote international understanding and respect for diversity.
Here at Live Laugh Giraffe we are all about helping young people to share their differences and celebrate them. True friendships are so important and we believe that it really is the quality of your friendships over the quantity!
Share your photos of your special friendships or tell us your favourite story about you and your friends HERE and we will share it with our community to celebrate the special day.
We are not only sisters but great friends too, so we wanted to share our favourite picture with you!
Check out our Instagram @l_l_giraffe too for more fun stuff!
We hope you and your friends have a terrific day!
