About The Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation

Our Mission

WSF logoThe Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation was established in 2001 to honor the name and memory of Harvey Ball, the artist who in 1963 created that international symbol of goodwill, the smiley face. Harvey Ball believed that each one of us has the ability to make a positive difference in this world and he lived according to that belief. He knew that any effort to improve the world, no matter how small, was worthwhile. And he understood the power of a smile and a kind act. In furtherance of that philosophy the Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation focuses on small, grass-roots charitable efforts that otherwise receive little attention or funding.

Smiley was created by Harvey Ball for a Worcester, MA Insurance Company in December 1963. What began as an internal employee morale boosting campaign soon spread around the world to become the symbol of good will, the most recognized face, and most imitated image.
