Be of Service on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Just got an email from and Barack and Michelle Obama are calling on us all to spend Monday volunteering in our communities. In these hard times, we're all in it together. Tomorrow, Monday, January 19th, can you join a service project near your home?

What a great way to GET OUT OF THE HOUSE (yippee!) on the school and work holiday.


In these dire economic times, your neighbors may need help with their homes. Schools, schoolyard gardens, and community centers need upkeep. Food banks are struggling.

It's time help each other out. Volunteering is a positive experience for both children and adults. With just a few hours of your day, you can make a huge difference in the lives of others. 

Find or host a service project in your area. Or if nothing else, help a friend, neighbor, or mama in need.


+++ Will you answer this call to service this Monday? Have simple ideas for families who want to be of service? Tell us about it.
