Seize this opportunity to help someone in need, make a positive change in your community and teach your kids the value of helping others and getting involved in the world around them.

The mission of the 9/11 organization is to honor the victims of 9/11 and those who rose to service in response to the attacks by encouraging all Americans and others throughout the world to pledge to voluntarily perform at least one good deed, or another service activity on 9/11 each year. They hope we can create a lasting and forward-looking legacy – annually rekindling the spirit of service, tolerance, and compassion that unified America and the world in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.

Sometimes it is not the size of the act we perform but that we choose to act all. If you need some ideas on what kinds of services to perform, take a look at and read this post from the Kidoinfo archive, Helping Kids Help Others.
