Hosting an America's Sunday Supper

AMERICA'S SUNDAY SUPPER
Dr. King envisioned a “beloved community” where brotherhood is a reality that does not allow poverty, hunger and homelessness to exist. Points of Light invites you to gather together with your community to discuss Dr. King's work and message, which impacted many aspects of our society and is more pertinent today than ever before. On January 16, 2012 people from diverse backgrounds in towns across the nation will come together to watch a documentary film, share a meal, discuss issues such as hunger, poverty and homelessness that American families and veterans are facing today and take action.

I am so excited to host a wonderful supper with friends, family and new acquaintances, to share a meal and view a documentary to inspire meaningful conversation focused on community involvement.
I can't think of a better way to celebrate Dr. King's Birthday!

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service 2012- January 16th

 What is the MLK Day of Service?


Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'"

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.

The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.

National Day of Service is one of my most anticipated holiday's.  I look forward to not only celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. King, but to honor my belief of helping others through volunteering.
Use this day as a way to renew your commitment within your community, embrace the opportunity to step outside of yourself and do something to positively impact others; serve your community today-Keep The Dream Alive!
