• 9/11 Day of Service

    Log On and Pledge to Perform a Good Deed on 9/11

    Created soon after the 2001 attacks, 9/11 Day gives everyday people a positive way to remember and pay tribute to the victims…and to honor all those who rose up in response to the attacks.

    9/11 Day is also a time to underscore the importance of working together in peace to improve our world. Each year, millions of people around the globe take time out on 9/11 to help others in need in any way they can.

    The 9/11 Day of Observance is led by the nonprofit organization MyGoodDeed which also led the campaign to secure official government recognition of September 11 as a Day of Service and Remembrance. Several nonprofit groups joined together to support the 9/11 Day of Observance.

    You, too, can join the worldwide observance by logging on to the 9/11 Day website and participating in the “I Will” campaign.

    “I Will” asks you to enter your own plans to “do a good deed” in your community. Your deed could be something as simple as pledging to treat everyone with extra kindness or as ambitious as volunteering your time to work at a soup kitchen. College of Public Service students and anyone interested in honoring the heroes of 9/11 can visit www.911day.org for more information.
