9/11 will always be a significant day in our collective history. In the years since the tragic attacks and loss of so many innocent lives it has become a day to honor the victims and survivors by doing something positive for humanity.
September 11th is officially a National Day of Service and Remembrance and every year more and more people join the movement and volunteer to make contributions to causes that are important to them.
Last year, on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the organization MyGoodDeed partnered with the HandsOn Network to help organize the largest day of charitable service in US history.
“9/11 Day is the international non-profit movement to observe September 11 every year as a day of charitable service and doing good deeds. We created this observance soon after 9/11 to provide a positive way to forever remember and pay tribute to the 9/11 victims, honor those that rose in service in response to the attacks, and remind people of the importance of working more closely together in peace to improve our world. Today millions participate annually by taking time out on 9/11 to help others in need, in their own way.”
In observance of September 11, the 9/11 Day movement encourages you to pledge a good deed by completing this sentence: “I will…” The possibilities for doing good are endless.
