In 1943, Dorie Cooper was a 7 year old living in England. Her mother took her to a hospital in to visit her uncle who was wounded in the war. While they were there, Dorie’s uncle was very distraught, having lost his right leg to a land mine. In an attempt to cheer him up, she asked him “Draw a bird for me, please” Even though he was unwell, he decided to do as Dorie asked. He looked out his window and drew a picture of a robin.

After seeing her uncle’s bird picture, Dorie laughed out loud and proclaimed that he was not a very good artist, but that she would hang the picture in her room nonetheless. Her uncle’s spirits were lifted by his niece’s complete honesty and acceptance. Several other wounded soldiers also had their day brightened by the event and every time Dorie came to visit thereafter, they held drawing contests to see who could produce the best bird pictures. Within several months, the entire ward’s walls were decorated by bird drawings.

3 years later, Dorie was killed after being struck by a car. At her funeral, her coffin was filled with bird images that had been made by soldiers, nurses and doctors from the ward where her uncle had been. Ever since then, those men and women remembered the little girl that brought hope to the ward by drawing birds on her birthday, April 8th.

Draw a Bird Day was never declared an official holiday, but it grew through those soldiers and medical personnel and their families. Today, it is celebrated world wide as a way to express joy in the very simplest of things in life and as a way to help soldiers everywhere forget war and suffering even if only for a short time.

Emotes

This page is outdated. If you can, please make it up to date.

Emotes (Also known as taunts) are animations your character can buy from the shop for in-game currency or Robux. They are purely cosmetic and do not change gameplay in any way other than player interaction but, it does make you flex. You can press G to select the taunt you want.

There are currently more than 14 obtainable emotes. Most emotes will continue indefinitely until cancelled; the remainder will only play their animation once per activation when used in Maps but will loop when used in the lobby.

Current Emotes

Classic Party

Monster Mash

Orange Justice

Reason: Three players used the emote while standing next to each other and it was considered some kind of cult so Roblox banned their accounts. After that the emote got removed.
