A play day in the mud became an annual event known as International Mud Day. It started out as a project to help Nepaul children buy clothes in their city. The event ballooned into a worldwide sensation that emphasizes the connection between the Earth and everyone. The event was spponsored by the Florissant Valley Child Development Center on June 29, 2012 and was the first time that these students participated. Jan Meyers, office manager of the CDC believes it will become an annual tradition from this day forward.
