Oct. 22 is Make A Difference Day

Monday, October 17, 2011

On the 4th Saturday of October,(Oct. 22), millions of Americans are gathering together to help their neighbors. It was created by USA WEEKEND, and is the most encompassing national day to volunteer in some way…ANY WAY, to help others.

WHO: Anyone. Just go on the website or call the Hot Line to see what’s happening in YOUR area...or plan something on your own. Large or small, it doesn’t matter, just that we all get out to help some way!

You can also enter your project for an award. 10 projects will be selected.

The Make a Difference Day website has all kinds of information and examples of volunteering done in the past. Homeless people, children, patients in hospitals, US Troops, all kinds of charities here in the US and around the world benefit! It’s really exciting when we all do something!
