Serve. Volunteer. Do the MLK 25 Challenge.

Have you heard about United We Serve, Serve.gov, MLK Day of Service, or the MLK 25 Challenge? All of these have in common – service, volunteering, and making a difference in your community. I encourage you to get involved today. Make a difference in 2011!

“On Monday January 17th 2011 hundreds of thousands of Americans participated in service projects across the country. From painting schools to serving meals to writing letters to troops, these dedicated volunteers made a positive difference in their communities.

But why stop there?

In order to encourage ongoing service throughout the year, we have launched the MLK 25 Challenge – a call to all Americans to honor Dr. King by pledging to take at least 25 actions during 2011 to make a difference for others and strengthen our communities.” – Stories of Service blog

The video above gives some great ideas, it’s not hard to find places or actions for serving. It doesn’t have to be long service projects either. Some ways that I’ve found to serve are things like – volunteering in a class at a local school, being part of the children’s or worship team at church, babysitting for no pay, serving at Church Online, visiting a homeless shelter, serving in a soup kitchen, etc.

The ideas are endless. Serving is fun. Let’s make a difference in our communities this 2011!

What are some ways you can serve, already serve, or have served in your community? Will you take the MLK 25 Challenge?
