Take the Day On This Monday

What better way to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the upcoming inauguration, and the long weekend (if you get one of those) than spending some time volunteering in your community this upcoming weekend?

Rather than a day off, MLK Day (also know as the King Day of Service) is a day "on", and thousands of community service events are taking place across the country.

In order to encourage people to participate, President-elect Obama has set up USA Service, a website where you can find an event near you, sign up to host a service activity, and register to receive updates about future volunteer opportunities.

MLK Day serves as a poignant reminder that helping each other is a cause we can all stand behind. Find an event near you and get involved with making your community a better place today and every day.
