Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Day of Service

In remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK), the Corporation for National & Community Service is promoting Monday, January 20, 2014 as a "Day of Service". The event's website opens with a thoughtful point:

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'"

If you would like to join those who will be following through on that idea in a meaningful way during MLK Day, the MLK Day of Service website is a great place to look for an opportunity that will work for you. In addition to a location driven search feature which will allow you to find Day of Service activities located near you (as an example, there are over 20 opportunities in the Twin Cities alone), the website has toolkits for projects like "Training your neighbors to prepare for disasters".  More at the link below:

Have a Great Weekend and Please Consider Contributing Your Time to a Worthy Cause Next Monday!
