9/11 National Day Of Service

Nine years ago, terrorists attacked the United States of America killing and injuring thousands. Horrified and compassionate Americans subsequently donate $2.2 billion to various charities that had quickly set up 9/11-related funds. This is the most money ever raised in response to a single catastrophe.

Today, we are asked to commemorate this tragedy and continue the momentum of generosity by donating our time. You can learn about that effort by visiting a website by MyGoodDeed Inc., in partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service, HandsOn Network, and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum (“9/11 Memorial”). The site even includes lesson plans for teachers and tips for parents. And the widget below shows you how some people have pledged to do good.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
