Beginning in 1923, Near East Relief urges families across the nation to eat a simple orphanage-style meal on the first Sunday in December. They are then asked to donate the difference between the orphanage-style meal and a normal Sunday dinner to Near East Relief. Several U.S. presidents issue proclamations and endorsements for Golden Rule Sunday, including President Calvin Coolidge.
