In a drive to organize the single largest day of charitable service in U.S. history in observance of the 10-year anniversary of 9/11, MyGoodDeed (http://www.911day.org), a leading 9/11 nonprofit organization, and HandsOn Network, the volunteer activation division of Points of Light Institute, launched an inspiring national public service announcement (PSA) campaign.
The powerful campaign, themed “I will (pay tribute),” features relatives of 9/11 victims and survivors of the attacks, along with celebrities and others encouraging people everywhere to engage in good deeds and voluntary service in honor of those who perished in the attacks in observance of the 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance.
Appearing in the campaign ads and/or online are more than 30 actors, singers and sports figures, including Samuel L. Jackson, Mariska Hargitay, Hillary Duff, Jordin Sparks, New York Yankees’ first baseman Mark Teixeira and Cleveland Cavaliers’ Baron Davis. Each shares their good deed plans for 9/11 and urges others to join them by saying, “I will,” the initiative’s call to action to “remember by doing.”
