The Alliance For The Unreached says “International day for the Unreached” on May 23rd. 

“Someone came and presented the Gospel to us and gave us the opportunity to be reconciled to God, to have a relationship with God, and to have our lives transformed by the Living God. Why would we hold that back from millions of others?” said Jon Fugler, board chair of the Alliance for the Unreached. “So awareness is our focus. Our campaign is designed to help spread awareness, through our social connections, simply and quickly.”
