Each year, volunteers come together to rekindle the spirit of unity that existed immediately after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. This day brings together cultures, bridges differences and unites citizens of goodwill around the world.
Last year My Good Deed launched The I Will campaign for the 10-year anniversary of 9/11. The result was extraordinary. A remarkable 33 million Americans, from all 50 states, engaged in good deeds and charitable service as a constructive way of observing 9/11 last year, according to independent research conducted in 2011 by Horizon Consumer Science for 9/11 Day.
Join the movement this year and pay tribute through positive action. Write your "I will" pledge or view other pledges on the 9/11 Day quilt.
Today, six of our HandsOn Network affiliates will collectively mobilize 15,000 people in disaster preparedness training and building the capacity of nonprofit organizations to equip and mobilize volunteers in times of disaster. Read the our full 9/11 day press release here.
Please join us in observing 9/11 as a day of good deeds, a day to pay tribute together by promoting worldwide unity, compassion and peace.
