Make a Difference Day 2011

This week has been a great week for service, and tomorrow is the biggest national day of service of the year; Make A Difference Day!

This Saturday marks the 21st anniversary of Make A Difference Day. Since 1990, HandsOn Network and USA WEEKEND have joined together to sponsor Make A Difference Day, the largest national day of community service. Millions of Americans will unite in a common mission to improve the lives of others this Saturday.

GenerationOn has been supporting Make Your Mark Week this week, a great way for kids to get involved in small acts of service that can come together to make big changes in their communities. Kids can find ways to help animals, the environment, homelessness, hunger, and literacy.

This weekend, it's easy to get involved in service! Here are some tips for finding your own way to Make A Difference or Make Your Mark this weekend:
