Today is National Make a Difference Day!

Yes, today is National Make a Difference Day; "Initiated in 1990, this is a national day devoted to helping others by doing volunteer work in the community. The activity can be almost anything. On this day, millions of Americans participate in community improvement projects taking the form of clean-ups, fix-ups, painting and repair in poorer neighborhoods, parks and municipal facilities. It doesn't matter what project you take on. It doesn't matter whether you help a non-profit organization, the community, your town, nursing home, a church, a food kitchen, or any other group in need. What matters is that you participate."

If your grandchildren are younger, maybe you could help them make cookies (remember, it is National Cookie Month, too) and take them to neighbors or have them help rake leaves for an elderly neighbor.

So, what can you do to help your grandchildren make a difference today?
