This diary is to help get the word out about a great idea from the Northwest Suburbs for Obama group.
The event is 44 for 44 and is described as follows:
Please join us in honoring our 44th President Barack Obama by participating in '44 for 44' between now and Inauguration Day, focusing if possible on our national day of service, Martin Luther King Day. (January 19th this year.)
You can volunteer 44 hours, donate 44 dollars, do 44 things, talk to 44 people, make 44 phone calls, knock on 44 doors, write to 44 soldiers, help 44 children, donate 44 items to a food pantry, donate 44 books to a library...or any other community service you choose to do.
Once you've decided, please email a description of your 'pledge'. We'll post them so everyone can enjoy knowing what everyone else is doing, and perhaps inspire others. (Unless you state otherwise, we'll use first name and last initial only.)
CHANGE WE CAN ACT ON!
