Serve because you have so much to give.
Even though September 27th was designated a day of National Action doesn’t mean we can’t get to the party late.
A lot of us have a lot to give back and yet we choose not to give (as much as we could). Bogopolis believes in a world of serving, a world of giving back – because, quite frankly, we (I) have been give so much.
Step up in this time of uncertainty and give back to those that don’t have as much as you do.
Imagine the enormous difference it would make to our communities and nation if every American served for a year with a community-service group, nonprofit enterprise or faith-based organization.
This month we’re introducing in the Senate the Serve America Act, which provides funding and incentives for service programs, so that as many people as possible can serve at any or every stage of their lives. We want to make it feasible for many to devote a year or more to service. We’ve already seen lives change as Americans give their time and talents to service organizations. But we know much more could be done. It’s time to encourage many more Americans to roll up their sleeves and volunteer in communities at home and abroad. Americans across the nation are beginning to answer this call, devoting one year or more to volunteer service and, in the process, changing the world.
