MLK Jr. Day of Service

 

The MLK Jr. Day of Service is next Monday, on his birthday. Visit this site, plug in your zip code under “Find a Project,” and find a service opportunity near you. Volunteering on Monday will make a difference to people in your community and you will feel great in the process. It’s a win-win situation, and how often do those come along?

I will be volunteering with people from my newest volunteer gig at Hostelling International. We’ll be helping Boston Cares folks (another one of my volunteer gigs) with a variety of projects. Volunteering has become a part-time job for me and it’s a highly fulfilling one.

I leave you with a Martin Luther King Jr. quote I just came across. The world would be a much better place if more of us took this message to heart:

“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
