Today is Make A Difference Day. For more than two decades, Points of Light has partnered with USA Weekend to sponsor Make A Difference Day. It is the day we celebrate the power of people to use their time, talent, voice and money to create change.
This event has grown over the years to include people from all walks of life – young and old, families, cities and communities large and small. These volunteers see a problem or an opportunity in their community and take action to address it. They touch the lives of millions and find their own lives changed and transformed.

Will you be participating? I am currently collecting clothing to donate.
