Every day, in communities throughout Georgia and across the country, people are lifting themselves up and reaching out a helping hand to those around them.
Volunteers inspire me every day. They give me hope by showing how much we can accomplish when we work together for our communities. They are the true catalysts that will help us renew the American dream.
And the best thing about volunteers? They can be anyone -- parents, grandparents, neighbors, kids, teachers, businesspeople, old, young, rich, poor -- who commits their time, effort, and talent to drive change in their community.
But to truly bring about the change our communities deserve, we need to extend that volunteer spirit. So today, I’m asking you to join me and pledge to dedicate 10 hours or more to volunteer service in your community before the end of 2013.
Make your pledge today, and help us reach our goal of 5,000 volunteer service hours before the end of the year!http://www.michellenunn.com/...
During my “What Washington Can Learn from Georgia” tour, I met so many Georgians who are having a tremendous impact on their communities through volunteering -- people like Bill and Eileen Holden in Savannah.
Bill and Eileen volunteer with Senior Citizens, Inc., an organization that is serving more than 20,000 seniors in the region through programs like Meals on Wheels. Without volunteers like Bill and Eileen, many of those seniors might go hungry or lose their capacity to live independently. But with their time and generosity, Bill and Eileen are able to help meet a critical community need and change lives.
Everywhere you look in Georgia, people like Bill and Eileen are making a huge difference just by being willing to dedicate their time. Despite differences, they work together to advance the work of the local PTA, make decisions about local economic development strategies, or wrestle to raise money and allocate resources for the church's mission work. These volunteers don't fight battles to the point of paralysis. They overcome obstacles and work to create answers to problems.
Imagine the difference we could make here in Georgia and across the country if we all pitched in 10 hours of our time.
Will you join volunteers like Bill and Eileen and pledge at least 10 hours of volunteer service in your community before the end of the year?
I’m running for the U.S. Senate because I believe that the spirit of community these volunteers embody -- a spirit I was lucky to experience every day at Points of Light, and a spirit that’s sadly lacking in Washington today -- is exactly what our country needs to get back on track.
We need more of this problem-solving spirit, here in Georgia and across the country. Together, we can make a huge difference. I know it because I’ve seen it. And that’s why I’m running for Senate.
I hope you’ll help me show the politicians in Washington what it truly means to come together to solve problems by making your volunteer pledge today. Together, we can restore a spirit of service and civility in our nation.
Please join me in making this pledge now.
