Make A Difference Day
The goal is to encourage people to help others….neighbors helping neighbors. That’s what USA Weekend Magazine and Points Of Light had in mind when Make A Difference Day was created. Saturday, October 26th, is the day that millions of people, all around the world, will join together to improve the lives of others.
Corporations, communities and nonprofit organizations are joining together to prove that anyone….anywhere….can make amazing things happen when they take on the problems they see in their community.
There are many non-profit organizations that are encouraging volunteers for Make A Difference Day. The Washington Pavilion is inviting people to stop in and visit the many different booths of organizations that will be showcasing all the volunteering projects available not only today, but year round.
There are many ways to get involved with Make A Difference Day. Simply look around and notice what can be done in your community. Get involved with a non-profit organization, volunteer at a shelter or center, or just pick up trash in your neighborhood. Pick something that is important to you, and Make A Difference.
