"The old ideas are new again because they are not old, they are timeless: duty, sacrifice, commitment, and a patriotism that finds its expression in taking part and pitching in." --George H. W. Bush Inaugural Address,1989
As we return to work after Memorial Day, the themes of pitching in and patriotism are indeed new again. In June, we will celebrate a defining milestone of mobilizing the largest commitment of pro bono service in history.
In tough times in our nation's history, individuals and companies have volunteered their time and expertise. During World War II, ad agencies supported military recruitment campaigns. During the civil rights movement, the legal community answered President Kennedy's call to action.
As in tough times past, America's businesses are again stepping up to volunteer their time and talent.
Won't you join us to see your business listed among those leading this effort? It's never been easier to join A Billion + Change.
