Global Forgiveness Day

Global Forgiveness began in 1994. It was created and is sponsored by the Christian Embassy of Christ's Ambassadors. This holiday originated in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

In 1994 the organization, 'The Christian Embassy of Christ's Ambassadors' hung a single banner proclaiming National Forgiveness Day in downtown Victoria, British Columbia. As the annual celebration progressed, overwhelming media attention required that National Forgiveness Day be renamed Global Forgiveness Day in order to better reflect the organization's desire to see the message spread beyond national borders.
