One Day's Pay
September 11, 2003 9:43 AM   Subscribe

One Day's Pay is a not-for-profit org that promotes September 11th as a "national day of voluntary service, charity, and compassion." Why not take a few minutes or a few hours to help those in need? As an extension, we could all blog our efforts and share via trackbacks or links in the comments. In my mind, as good a way as any to commemorate a tragedy.

"national day of voluntary service, charity, and compassion."

Unfortunately, George W. Bush will be unable to take part.

The jury is still out on whether or not commemorating this particular tragedy is a good thing.

For my part, I vow not to consume any self-loving mass media that might be riding the coattails of the tragedy. Even NPR had to tie the new VI Warshowsky book in.

How timely.

On post-view: perhaps I shall stand on the street corner and yell "fuck!" quite loudly.

I want to know why we need a horrible event like that of September 11, 2001 to promote volunteerism? Isn't volunteering something that every person should do (as their personal circumstance allows), just as a regular part of their lives?

I stopped by Second Harvest on my way to work and dropped off some food. Today (and every day) is a good day to help out your fellow human beings.
