This weekend, hundreds of organizations, including DC Social Innovation Project, will be rolling up our sleeves to make a difference in our community through the power of service. On Saturday, we’ll be partnering with IMPACT and our grantee DC UrbanGreens to direct our volunteer muscle to build mobile farms for Ward 7 in the shadow of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial on the National Mall. And on Monday, we’ll be partnering with the Meridian International Center to provide aspiring entrepreneurs with pro-bono coaching to help their ideas lift off. We invite you to come join us or check out the dozens of volunteer opportunities throughout the city over at Serve DC.
But no matter what you find yourselves doing this holiday weekend, we hope you will join with us to tell everyone you know that service and Dr. King’s message is about more than just a weekend–its the beginning of a powerful commitment that can last a lifetime. We’re starting a thunderclap to raise our virtual hands to celebrate the power of service with a message that will reach all across the Internet. We hope you’ll join with us in a single act of solidarity to proudly stand up for the importance of service by taking 30 seconds to sign up for our thunderclap and reach thousands. Together, we can send a message that we hold the power to change communities in our hands.
This MLK Day, let’s make the Internet thunder with the power of social innovation.
