Claudia A. Evart is the founder and director of Siblings Day (April 10), a day set –aside for people to honor, recognize and celebrate their siblings. After losing her two siblings to separate accidents early in life, Claudia realized the importance of remembering our siblings, both living and no longer with us. She has dedicated herself to ensuring the bond of brother and sister is forever recognized as the special gift it is.

Her tireless efforts have paved the way for forty governors to recognize Siblings Day; they are Alabama (2), Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana (2), Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri (2),  Nebraska (2) , New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico (2), New York (3), Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Washington (2) , Wisconsin (2) and Wyoming.
