Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary of Make A Difference Day, the largest national day of community service. The annual event, sponsored by HandsOn Network and USA WEEKEND is celebrated every fourth Saturday in October. People all around the country will be banding together to make their communities a better place. Hopefully it will be a starting point for everyone to embrace an ongoing commitment to service. You can find and announce your projects on the on the HandsOn network website, as well as share your story and gather resources to spread the word.
At Taproot, we have our own twist on the event. Beyond just making a difference, why not also MAKE IT MATTER? Pro bono engagements can bring added rewards by creating long-term infrastructure for nonprofits while also allowing you to sharpen and use your professional skills in new settings. As you search for projects in your area, consider the sustainability of the work you do and contribute meaningfully by utilizing your personal strengths to effect social change.
