A day to do good is our tradition

That day is nearly here again. It is less than a week away, the fourth Saturday in October, the national day of doing good.

If you’ve lived in this part of the country for more than a year, you will know what this means. If you don’t, you may be spending too much time on the couch. The fourth Saturday in October is Make A Difference Day, when untold thousands of people across the country, including thousands in North Central Washington, go forth with one simple goal: to do something, small or large, that makes a difference in our community or the lives of the people in it. It is nothing less than a massive outbreak of simple selflessness. In large organized projects, or small single-handed spur-of-the-moment good deeds, people expend energy in service to their community or fellow human beings, with no expectation of reward other than satisfaction. For 23 years running we have come out of the fourth Saturday in October a better place than when we went in. We came out better not just for the tangible things, what the volunteers actually did, but simply because Make A Difference Day happened. The infectious, golden spirit of giving unleashed by Make A Difference Day really does make a difference.
