Even though you can give service ANY day of the year, the fourth Saturday in October has been set aside as Make a Difference Day, to celebrate the power of people to make a difference.
It’s a day when millions of volunteers worldwide unite in a common mission to improve the lives of others.
It’s when you complete a random act of kindness, carry out unsolicited community service, or do something nice for no reason.
That’s exactly what 10-year-old Mia has done with her Girl Scout Bronze Award project. This remarkable fourth grader decided she was going to make a difference in the life of her cousin Makenna, who has Down syndrome.
Take it from her, just a few hours of your day could change the outcome of someone else’s.
