Service & Remembrance

911day.jpgSeptember 11th is a source of pain for so many, but now the day can also represent something really positive. Following efforts by MyGoodDeed – a coalition supported by 9/11 families – President Obama named 9/11 a National Day of Service and Remembrance; a day to honor 9/11 victims and pay tribute to those who bravely responded to the attacks, through service. At 911dayofservice.org users can find volunteer opportunities and post good deeds. And as you plan good deeds for 9/11 and beyond, check out VolunteerSpot.
