Day of Action for National Service: This Saturday!
Tomorrow, September 27th, people across the country will be coming together "to demonstrate the impact that service has – and could have - upon our country and the power of citizens to create large scale change." There will be 2700 events in all 50 states. I can think of no better way to realize the values I wrote of in my last post then to take a few hours out of your day on Saturday to stand up for service and be a part of the movement that is transforming the way people think about government and giving millions of Americans an opportunity to give back to the country that has given them so much.
I am currently on my way to Washington, DC where I will be participating in the Day of Action at Freedom Plaza tomorrow from 6-8 pm. This event, titled "ignite the Fire for Service," will be from 6-8 p.m. and promises to be entertaining, informative, and inspiring. My best friend, Joshua Kaller, has been organizing this event for the past five months, and I know he has done an amazing job to put together a day of action that will be powerful. I'll be helping out onstage during the festivities, so keep a lookout for me!
