Tomorrow is Make A Difference Day, a a national day of community service intended to get folks to come together with the common mission of improving their communities and their world. From park cleanup projects to community book drives, there are lots of great ways to get involved this weekend. And you don't have to wait until tomorrow to get started. A simple wardrobe change this morning and you can join with millions of others around the U.S. in an effort to stop bullying
by celebrating Misfit Sock Day.
According to the Million Misfit Sock March website:
The March is all about building community and spreading the word that our differences matter; that it's important to celebrate who we are and what makes us different.
So how can you get involved? Just wear a pair of mismatched socks today. Any color, any style. And be sure to let folks know why you're wearing them. They are calling it a "march" but you don't have to actually march anywhere - unless of course you want to march up and down the halls of your school or workplace telling folks about your mismatched socks!
Like Mark Peter Hughes (author of Lemonade Mouth) says:
"We are all misfits in our own individual way. And it's those very differences that make us strong and enrich our lives."
Will you embrace your inner misfit today?
