To Do: Martin Luther King Day of Service

Martin Luther King Day is next Monday (wow, this month is going fast). I'm looking forward to the unexpected three day weekend.

For the first time, Rob and I are going to take part in the National Day of Service. In the past, I've always seen it on the news at the end of the long weekend and regretted not signing up to help.

If you're not sure where to volunteer, there are two places to look: Obama's USA Service website or the official MLK Day website. A great way to start the New Year and to ramp up for the inauguration on Tuesday!

Kudos to you, Emily! When I worked for AmeriCorps, we organized an MLK service project every year. It's such a wonderful way to contribute to your community while honoring Martin Luther King, Jr's legacy. Plus it just plain feels good to be helpful!
