Global Wellness Day gains royal approval

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex has chosen Global Wellness Day as one of only 15 inspiring social responsibility projects to follow on their social media platform.

The royal couple asked their 9.3 million strong Instagram followers to nominate who they believe are ‘forces for change' in the world. Posting via @SussexRoyal, the couple commented:

“These accounts showcase those persevering at the grassroots level, connecting our global community through a shared lens of giving back and helping one another.”

Paul Gerrard, UK Global Wellness Day Ambassador, says: “It is an honour for ‘Global Wellness Day' to have been personally selected by their Royal Highnesses. It demonstrates the all-encompassing message that wellness has on each and every one of us.”

Global Wellness Day Founder, Belgin Aksoy, adds:

“As a Global Wellness Day Family, consisting of GWD Ambassadors and key supporters, we are beyond honoured and thankful that all our endless efforts, working day and night towards the common dream of ‘living well' around the world has been crowned by the British Royal Family. We look up to TRH The Duke and Duchess of Sussex for using their platform to showcase people and causes that work for the things that matter.”

Global Wellness Day is supported by several official governments around the world, along with celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, and has been celebrated simultaneously in over 150 countries at more than 7,000 different locations. 

Global Wellness Day 2020 will take place on 13th June.
