International Be a Gentleman Day


Today marks the second international Be a Gentlemen Day.

Founded by Peter Ryan of Today’s Gentlemen, the Be a Gentleman Day was created to bring awareness to common courtesy and small acts of kindness so easily left behind in today’s fast-paced society.

“This is a day for all (men and women) to reacquaint themselves with going about their day constantly displaying “Gentlemanly” conduct.

In the busy, time-poor society of today, sometimes it is a little too easy to forget the importance of courtesy, respect, consideration and, dare I say it: Chivalry.

This is a day to hold the door open for the next person, give up your seat for someone who needs it more, help someone in need, let the lane changer in, let the person with two items go in front of you in the supermarket queue, hold the lift, share a taxi, look around you and make the world a better place one Gentlemanly action at a time.

BaG day is also a time to recognise and celebrate those who have consistently displayed these behaviours, and to show others the quality of social interactions possible when everyone is behaving this way.”

    Men, this is an important event for you. I hope that you participate -not for the praise and adoration of others, but for the feeling of self-worth that you will have, knowing that you are doing the right thing.
