Make Your Mark Week is celebrated annually during the third week of October, and strives to inspire and mobilize youth to use their energy, ingenuity and compassion to “make their mark on the world” through hands-on service.
This year, Make Your Mark Week will be celebrated this week. During the week, young people will focus on issues that matter most to them by doing small acts or service projects that add up to make a big difference.
GenerationOn has chosen five service areas for Make Your Mark Week 2011 that matter most to young people including: animals, environment, homelessness, hunger and literacy.
You can help animals by pledging to playing Freekibble.com, which will donate a meal to a dog or cat in need.
Make Your Mark Week is made possible by generationOn, the youth service division of Points of Light Institute, and founding partner, Hasbro, Inc. Two hundred mini-grants in the amount of $250 each will be awarded to support service projects that enable youth to “make their mark” on one of the following issues: animals, the environment, homelessness, hunger and literacy.
With a goal of engaging at least 100,000 young people, generationOn encourages kids and families everywhere to get involved and make their mark on their local community.
Visit generationOn’s Make Your Mark Week to get involved and make a pledge to take action.
