Make a Difference Day

Make A Difference Day is a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. Millions of volunteers from around the world united in a common mission to improve the lives of others on Make A Difference Day, the last Saturday in October (October 22, 2016).

Thousands of projects are planned each year involving corporations, communities, nonprofit organizations, entire states and individuals. Many of the 250 HandsOn Network affiliates lead projects across the nation.

The stories told around Make A Difference Day show that anyone - regardless of age, location or resources - can accomplish amazing things when they take on the problems they see in their community.
