Make A Difference Day ~ Oct 25

What is Make A Difference Day?

Make A Difference Day is a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. Everyone can participate. Created by USA WEEKEND Magazine, Make A Difference Day is an annual event that takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October.

This year, Make A Difference Day is Saturday, October 25, 2008.

Millions have participated. In 2007, 3 million people cared enough about their communities to volunteer on that day, accomplishing thousands of projects in hundreds of towns.
Your project can be as large or as small as you wish! Look around your community and see what needs to be done.

After participating Oct. 25, please send in an entry form so you will be counted among the millions of volunteers and be considered for an award.

Anyone. Young and old, individuals and groups, anyone can carry out a volunteer project that helps others. It might be as ambitious as collecting truckloads of clothing for the homeless, or as personal as spending an afternoon helping an elderly neighbor or relative. USA WEEKEND features volunteers and their projects in articles and photos. Click here for project ideas and an idea generator.

That sounds like a great day! We will be camping, but I will see what I can do. Probably won't be anything award-worthy though.
