Happy Birthday, Dr. King!


Dr. King would have been 82 today. He would have also been proud to see us getting along and taking care of one other.

Here's a chance to give back to those less fortunate, with the great civil rights leader in mind:

Feeding America: Provides food for more than 37 million U.S. citizens a year.

Heifer International: Help others get the livestock and other sustainable products they need in order to survive.

Meals on Wheels: Provides home-delivered meals to the disabled and seniors.

Share Our Strength: Proceeds from its Taste of the Nation benefits—last year featuring 3,000 chefs in 50 cities—go to local organizations that serve the 12 million American children who need food pantries and other forms of assistance to obtain the nutrition they require.

Vital Bridges: For more than 20 years, the organization has helped men, women and children impacted by HIV and AIDS.
