As you hopefully have heard, Monday, January 19, millions of Americans are expected to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and answer President-elect Obama’s call to service by volunteering for community causes that matter to them.
This is a great opportunity to set aside some time to help others doing something you’ve always wanted to do… and to be in good company with millions of others who have joined efforts in the spirit of service.
If you haven’t yet decided what you want to do, or don’t have lots of free time, I encourage you to participate in LitterProject, by cleaning up litter in a favorite– or simply hurting– community spot. Bring a bag or two, a pair of gloves, and maybe even a friend, and pick up trash and dispose of it in a thoughtful way. This is a simple way to make a difference and lets you participate in something great.
Don’t let the day go by…
