January 15, 2015

Make January, 19th a day on, not a day off. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. first challenged us when he said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

Get inspired this week to rise to the challenge. Learn more about Dr. King’s legacy and tell us how you’re carrying on his work during the King holiday. To make it easy to celebrate the holiday, we’ve rolled up great resources and tools from the web, Points of Light, and the Corporation for National and Community Service.

Here are a few ways to learn, gather, serve, and share how you’re celebrating #MLKDay2015.
