It's National Volunteer Week!

It’s National Volunteer Week and this year’s theme is Celebrating People in Action.

This week is about recognizing all of you who volunteer with your local nonprofit, who organize voter registration drives and serve food to the homeless. It's about all of you that strive to Make Social Change A Reality.

Every year, organizations around the country take this week to thank their volunteers and show the community just how much they value a volunteer’s time and contribution. Without them, the nonprofit sector as it is today would not survive.

So we'd like to take a moment to thank all of the people behind the Literacy 'n' Poverty Project and Make Social Change A Reality. Our volunteers live in all parts of the country and donate countless hours of their time, skills and knowledge to help us fulfill our mission. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

We'd also like to thank our readers for being socially conscious and following our blog. It takes many to make social change a reality and just by participating in the dialogue you are making a difference.
