MLK Day of Service

Media Title

Since the hard-won battle to make Martin Luther King Day a national holiday, many have been disappointed with the results. It seems a day of remembering great works for humanity has turned into just another day to sleep in. But we can, and are, doing better. In 1996, U.S. Senator Harris Wofford and Todd Bernstein organized more than 1,000 MLK day volunteers in Philadelphia, executing projects like the restoration of a Habitat for Humanity house. Since then, Philadelphia has set the standard making MLK Day not just a holiday, but a day of service. Last year, Philly led the nation with 109,000 volunteers participating in 1,500 projects. This King Day, help Philly set the example of making a difference. Sign up to volunteer for a project at mlkdayofservice.org. You can even create your own project (guidance is available) that others can participate in. Rather than sleep in, why not live the dream? —Brad Forbes
