San Francisco & New York
First Saturday in June (6/6/15)Nametag Day is Coming!
Imagine this: for one day we all wear a nametag, proclaiming our openness to each other. We handed out thousands over the past two years, and now we're doing it in New York AND San Francisco!
Join us! Sign up below to get involved. Send us a message to talk about doing something fun for Nametag Day. Or find us on the day and grab a nametag!
Volunteer to hand out nametags or partner on Saturday, June 6!
We're raising $2,500 to cover the cost of nametags and giving away great prizes!
Join our Facebook events and share with your friends!
What's in a nametag?
A nametag says “I am open. I want to talk to you.” It adds an element of humanity to our day, breaking down an invisible barrier between us. As we walk around our cities, we often forget to notice the people around us and miss out on chances to connect.
How can I sign up?
Sign up in San Francisco or New York to help hand out Nametags. You can also spread the word: share Nametag Day on Facebook or Twitter, or to a listserv. We can also give you nametags to do your own thing. Just send us a message and let us know what you want to plan!
Meet your neighbors
Ever wanted to connect with the thousands of people walking past you? Each day brings opportunities to make new friends and share experiences. All too often, we forget to notice the people around us. Nametag Day aims to break this barrier with a bit of spontaneity and silliness, strengthening the human element of the urban experience.
Let's document the day!
Add photos on Instagram with #nametagday and we’ll put them up on our site! Send us a tweet at @nametagday if you take any videos.
"We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects." —Herman Melville
