NEW YORK, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Sept. 22, 2022 / — The Siblings Day Foundation will host a social day for siblings on November 18 at the New York Estonian House (234 East 34th St, Manhattan, NY), starting at 6:00 p.m., and featuring twin brothers, musicians and Julliard graduates, Will and Pete Anderson.

The upcoming Siblings Day Social is an annual event held at the Estonian House in New York. Due to the pandemic, the nonprofit organization has been unable to host an event for the past three years, finally giving the opportunity for the community to come together in the spirit of kindness. “During this holiday season, we tend to think of our family and friends more than at any other time of the year. Siblings are special and we hold them in our hearts whether they live or no with us”, says the founder, Claudia Evart.

The organizers invite everyone to join us for an evening of networking, socializing and live music. Bring your friends, family and colleagues to our Siblings Day social and live event. Authentic Estonian food and drink is available for purchase, and donations to help advocacy efforts for wider recognition and celebration of Siblings’ Day are encouraged. Volunteers are always welcome to help with the activities of the association.

Siblings Day is an annual holiday recognized in parts of the United States on April 10 and as Siblings Day on May 31 in parts of Europe. The Siblings Day Foundation was founded in Massachusetts in 1995 to recognize, honor and celebrate the special bond between siblings. In 1998, the organization became a 501.c.3 nonprofit volunteer organization with satellite offices in New York, South Carolina, and Virginia. The organization is founded by Claudia Evart, the pioneer of National Siblings Day originally created as a tribute to her only siblings. Her brother, Alan, and her sister, Lisette died prematurely. April 10, Lisette’s birthday was chosen as the day of the siblings. The Siblings Day Foundation’s message of love and honoring siblings has reached beyond our borders as Siblings Day is now celebrated around the world including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Ghana , India, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, Nigeria, Philippines and Singapore. , South Africa, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Since 1998, the governors of 49 states have officially issued proclamations to recognize Siblings Day in their states. Carolyn Maloney, then U.S. Representative from New York’s 12th and 14th congressional districts, officially saluted the holiday and entered it into the official congressional register of the United States Congress on April 10, 1997; and the following years 2001, 2005, 2008 and 2019.

“I am personally very happy that after decades of hard work we are beginning to recognize and set aside a day to celebrate our siblings. This relationship can last a lifetime and reading stories of sisters celebrating their lives together makes me so heartwarming. In December 2021 USA Today reported that three older sisters were celebrating their youngest brother’s 100th birthday together, a very beautiful way to cherish humanity and a special bond that has lasted over 100 years.” Devart.

Since 1997, the Siblings Day Foundation has been involved in advocacy efforts to have April 10 recognized at the federal level. In 1996, Congress stripped itself of the power to create a commemoration, leaving the sole power to do so in the hands of the president. Former Presidents Bill Clinton (2000), George Walker Bush (2008), and President Barack Obama (2016) endorsed Siblings Day by signing a presidential message. “We need a presidential proclamation to officially establish April 10 as National Siblings Day, and we hope that this year it will be officially established by our current president,” Evart said.
