Last week at the White House (it is not often that you get to say that!), I had the privilege of spending time with President George H. W. Bush and Barbara Bush and President Obama and Michelle Obama, along with dozens of Daily Point of Light honorees and hundreds of other Americans.
At 1:30 p.m. on Monday, President and Mrs. Obama will host President George H. W. Bush and Mrs. Bush at a special White House ceremony to honor the 5,000th person to receive the Daily Point of Light Award, which recognizes those who embrace the challenge of tackling a community need through volunteer service. I hope you'll join the fun and inspiration.
One week ago today, Points of Light's 2013 Conference on Volunteering and Service convened in Washington, D.C.. Reflecting on an amazing week packed with speakers, workshops and events, I'm having trouble picking just a few high points to share. After a bit of squeezing, here are my top 10.
