We’re Officially Official!

We managed to forget to post this last year, but we have been accepted by the wonderful folks at Chase’s Calendar of Events Headquarters as the Official Lost and Found Day Day! I’m not sure we had much competition, but it doesn’t really matter. Now, on every second Friday of every December, you can confidently wish all of your friends, family, and acquaintances a Happy Official Lost and Found Day! knowing you’re celebrating the real deal day. And while it’s good to look for your lost stuff any day of the year, Official Lost and Found Day is good time to give it an extra effort.

We’ve Submitted Our Entry to Be Official!

Though our school has always had a special place in our hearts for the Lost and Found, it wasn’t until December of 2012 that we actually celebrated Official Lost and Found Day. We thought it would end there, just us, in our little corner of the world, celebrating on our own each December. But then we learned that we could actually take this to new levels.

We discovered that Official Lost and Found Day didn’t officially exist, anywhere. So we figured, why couldn’t our Official Lost and Found Day be the Official Lost and Found Day?

So it is, on March 11th, 2013 that we have officially submitted our Official Day to the keeper of Official Days, the honorable folks at Chase’s Calendar of Events. They’ll look us over and determine whether or not we’re worthy. If we’re accepted we’ll be listed in their annual event guide and the whole world can join us in celebrating the Lost and Found.

Gosh, we’ll have to get our act together!

Welcome to the Official Lost and Found Day website

The second Friday of each December the world turns its attention to Official Lost and Found Day.  And if it doesn’t, well it should.  It is on that day that we take a moment to recall the stuff we’ve lost and perhaps make an effort to find it.

 

That coat we think we left at the movie theater but, well, it’s not on the way and when we called all we got was movie times?  It might still be there.  The glasses we left when we got coffee?  Sure we had an extra pair at home but we wouldn’t forget $50 there and not go back for it, would we?  The thing is, the $50 would probably be long gone, but the glasses?  Probably sitting in an assistant managers desk drawer.

 

And what about the backpack you left at school.  You checked once or twice at the main office and it wasn’t there but perhaps somebody grabbed it by mistake because it looked just like theirs and after it sat in their dorm room for two weeks they finally brought it back to school and now the backpack is there waiting for you.  Don’t assume the worst?  Take another look.

 

Official Lost and Found Day is a day for renewed hope and belief that lost items should never be forgotten or abandoned to lost and found limbo.  Please take a moment on Official Lost and Found Day to make one more effort, one more leap of faith, that what you’ve lost isn’t gone, it’s just not conveniently handy.  Reach out, make a call, stop by the office, retrace your steps.  What was lost can be found.  It’s up to you.
