Nametag Day is a wonderful event to bring people together.  Check out the cool video.  And, if you like, pitch in a few bucks. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/458845846/nametag-day-2015
The Nametag Day team is raising funds for Nametag Day 2015 on Kickstarter! Imagine this: one day where we all wear a nametag, proclaiming our openness to each other. Nametag Day is coming to San Francisco!
