Make a Difference Day!3:44:00 PM
Make a Difference Day is always the fourth Saturday in October, so today the 25th. Now you may ask, what exactly is Make a Difference Day?! Well, for over 20 years USA WEEKEND Magazine and Points of Light have collaborated to inspire the nation's largest day of community service! Isn't that just amazing? Millions upon millions of volunteers sign up and share their passionate stories of ways they have been helped and are now inspired to help others. Please check out http://makeadifferenceday.com/ for more details! Also be on the look out for the featured volunteers who have made a huge impact in the April issue of USA WEEKEND Magazine.
If you want to get involved here's a few quick ideas!
1. Volunteer at a local food pantry or soup kitchen!
2. Volunteer at a local Rescue Mission
3. Make blankets for a homeless shelter in your town
4. Ask relatives to donate food to give to a local food pantry
5. Volunteer at a local animal shelter
Personally, I find volunteering very fun and you get to meet so many different people from so many different walks of life. It is truly incredible and I highly recommend it. It is better to give than to receive. Happy Make a Difference Day everyone!
