Sign Up for Make A Difference Day 2012!

For more than 20 years, USA WEEKEND Magazine and Points of Light have joined together to sponsor Make A Difference Day, the largest national day of community service. On Saturday, October 27th, millions of volunteers from around the world unite in a common mission to improve the lives of others.

Make A Difference Day shows that anyone - regardless of age, location or resources - can accomplish amazing things when they take on the problems they see in their community. Recognizing the power of Make A Difference Day, other   organizations join with USA WEEKEND and Points of Light each year to inspire and recognize the valuable work of volunteers.
