September 11, 2001, will always be remembered as a day of tragedy, but just six months after the deadly attacks, David Paine and Jay Winuk decided to change the way we commemorate the day and the lives lost. They created a nonprofit, 9/11 Day, whose goal is to “transform the anniversary of the attacks into a national day of service and unity.” 9/11 Day is now the nation’s largest day of service recognized under federal law. Every year, more than 30 million people observe September 11 through service and by performing good deeds to help others.
