Big Sunday

Daily Point of Light # 4743 Apr 12, 2012

Big Sunday helps build community through community service. The idea is that everyone has some way they can help. Last year, Big Sunday mobilized 50,000 volunteers from all walks of life to help out on Big Sunday Weekend in May. The organization also mobilized more than 500 volunteers for the 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance, benefiting 2,500 people. Big Sunday is now a year-round organization, with a calendar listing more than 1,000 ways to get involved every year; monthly special events; more than 100 giving events at the holidays; an online wish list; a Youth in Action program; special corporate event planning; and more. Of all the things that Big Sunday does, the thing it enjoys the most is bringing people together to make the world a better place.
