Obama Wants You…To Volunteer

The National Day of Service might be over, but that doesn’t mean that your commitment to volunteerism has to end there.

A while back, I mentioned that Obama’s acceptance speech stood out for me because of its call for a new “spirit of service” from Americans. With that said, I wanted to point you in the direction of a few fun tools and resources that our new President has offered to get you started on volunteerism.

First, watch the PSA:

Then, visit the website to sign up for service updates. I also love their blog, which has already posted a very cool Wordle, just like we did!

And, if you’re already a volunteer — with the Red Cross or with any organization — send a text message and see your state pop up on the USA Service Mobile Map.

Honestly, you don’t want to miss out on serving your country as a volunteer. And when you get involved with the Red Cross, you have the option to help locally OR nationally. Whether you’re a flash designer or a truck driver, we’ve got a place for you.

Follow Obama’s advice — become a volunteer today!
