To celebrate World Smile Day, children and the elderly came together and pose to the cameras.
As part of a special project for World Smile Day organized by Anadolu Agency (AA), children between the ages 7 and 9 visited a retirement home in Ankara and teamed up with the residents.
Children first chatted with the residents and listened to their stories. Following the warm up, they got in front of the camera to smile to mark World Smile Day.
After creating a smiling icon for one of his customers in 1963, American advertiser Harvey Ball and his creation turned into an icon. Ball decided that this icon should inspire people around the world and celebrated every year. Since 1999, the first Friday of October is celebrated as World Smile Day.
