Michelle Obama’s Call to Service

Change does not have to wait until President elect Barack Obama is sworn into office, January 20, 2009.  Michelle Obama has invited our nation to participate in a day of service on January 19, 2009.  She parallels the Renew America Together initiative to Martin Luther King, Jr. since his life’s message was to rebuild our country and conquer the challenges that lie ahead.  This is not to say that we Americans should dedicate a single day to volunteer; we need to make this an ongoing commitment.

A plethora of community service events throughout the country have been organized to answer President elect Obama’s call to make a change.  To be a part of this historic pre-inaugural event, visit, www.usaservice.org, to sign up to participate or host a service event in your community.

Some of the events being hosted around the nation are:

  • Beach clean-ups
  • Park clean-ups
  • Food drives
  • Blood drives
  • Habitat for Humanity events
  • Clothing drives
  • Tree plantings

Make our nation’s enthusiasm for change a lasting commitment.  For some ideas regarding how small changes can make a big difference, visit, http://www.earthpromise.com/
