September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance

 

September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of efforts, originally launched in 2002 by the nonprofit 9/11 Day, with support from the 9/11 community and leading national service organizations. This effort established the tradition of engaging in community service on 9/11 as an annual and forward-looking tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks.

9/11day.org released a video campaign featuring some of the 3,000 children who were born on September 11, 2001. They ask us to stop fostering hateful thoughts, and instead do at least one good deed on September 11 to honor the victims and responders on the 15th anniversary of the attack.
