October 27, 2012: Make a Difference Day
Make a Difference Day, a joint initiative of USA Weekend Magazine and Points of Light, will be held this year on October 27. Make a Difference Day is the single largest national celebration of community service.
Participants register projects on the Make a Difference Day website, share ideas with others across the globe, and work to make the world a better place. Make a Difference Day provides online toolkits to assist you in the planning and development of your project, marketing tools to help you raise awareness, and tools to assist service project sponsors in recruiting volunteers within your local community.
Interested individuals should visit http://daytabank.handsonnetwork.org/to register and share project ideas with millions of others participating in Make a Difference Day. Those that do so will be eligible for:
- One of 10 $10,000 grants from Newman’s Own, a foundation dedicated to transforming lives and nourishing the common good.
- An all-expenses paid trip to the next Make a Difference Day Awards Ceremony, to be held April 2013.
