On this great day, be sure to carry a towel around with you today in honor of the late great author Douglas Adams and his awesome book The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
This international event is now celebrating its 12th anniversary with lots of stuff happening around the globe. Check out towelday.org to find out about Towel Day events.
Today’s not only a great day to carry a towel, but it’s the perfect occasion to donate one, too! For instance, if you’re in or around the Salem, MA area, Mike’s Museum is holding its second annual towel collection for the animal shelter at Front Street Coffee House. So, drop off a towel there, or to any animal shelter – they need them as much as interstellar hitchhikers do!
There’s an event page on Facebook and if you’re on Twitter, but sure to include the hashtag #towelday when tweeting about how you’re celebrating today — and include some pics too! You can also follow @towelday on Twitter.
