September 11th is the National Day of Service and Remembrance, also known as 9/11 Day. The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of efforts originally launched in 2002 by the 9/11 nonprofit 9/11 Day, with wide support by the 9/11 community and leading national service organizations. This effort first established the inspiring tradition of engaging in charitable 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. Honor this day by something as simple as a random act of kindness, but if you can kick it up a notch, why not?
9/11 Day, the international nonprofit movement to observe 9/11 every year as a day of charitable service, asks Americans what they will do this 9/11 to honor those lost that tragic day. Founded in 2002 by David Paine and Jay Winuk in honor of Winuk’s brother, Glenn, who was killed on 9/11, this day encourages millions to participate annually by taking time out to help others in need, in their own way. So DO!
