Michelle Obama's Call to Service

January 13, 2009

Yesterday, I received this message from Michelle Obama:

Regina --

One week from today, on January 19, Barack and I will join thousands of people all across the country for an extraordinary day of service.

I recorded a short video to tell you more about this important effort:



Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are committing to renew America together, one community at a time.

Whatever service activity you organize or take part in -- cleaning up a park, giving blood, volunteering at a homeless shelter, or mentoring an at-risk youth -- you can help start this important journey. But this is about more than just a single day of service, it's the beginning of an ongoing commitment to your community.

It's early days, but the incoming Obama administration seems committed to changing the way in which government and the nonprofit sector work together to improve society. Exciting stuff!
