Organizations we think you should know more about
The 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance is a federally recognized day. In 2009, the U.S. Congress passed bipartisan legislation, signed by President Barak Obama, which formally recognized September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance.
The 9/11 nonprofit MyGoodDeed and HandsOn Network, the volunteer activation division of Points of Light Institute, have joined together to encourage all Americans to commemorate the anniversary of September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance, leading the efforts to inspire one million acts of charitable service in tribute to the victims, survivors and those who rose to service in response to the attacks 10 years ago.
By visiting www.911day.org, volunteers can find service opportunities, create their own volunteer activities or projects in their local communities, and even post an "I Will" tribute. What better way to mark the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks than to create a permanent and positive legacy?
