Memorial Day of ACTION
This Memorial Day, Monday, May 26 is a great day to honor our troops. And what better way than to #choosetoACT.
Thursday May 1 – Wednesday May 6, 2015
A time for those who choose to pray and those who choose not to pray to #choosetoACT.
National Week of Action is a time for all of us, as human beings, to look in the mirror and take action – large or small – to improve the world. You and your community can #choosetoACT by fighting hunger in our communities, collecting supplies for the less fortunate, cleaning up our parks and neighborhoods, forming community task forces, holding fundraisers, organizing email- or letter-writing campaigns, volunteering in some small way to help the less fortunate among us, or even just doing something nice for a single person.
Week of Action is an initiative started by Humanist Rabbi Adam Chalom in response to National Day of Prayer and National Day of Reason. Week of Action takes place the week before National Day of Prayer and Reason, and is a way to come together regardless of beliefs to benefit our communities. Whether you observe National Day of Prayer or National Day of Reason, spend the last week of April acting.
Groups or individuals who #choosetoACT by holding an event are welcome to register their event so that others may join. To have your event included, simply fill out the form with a brief description of the event, including the organization or group you’re benefiting, what you’re doing, and how interested volunteers can join you. If you are looking for a way to act, search for an existing event in your area or get inspiration from our list of ideas.
National Week of Action is organized by Foundation Beyond Belief, a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation created to focus, encourage and demonstrate humanist generosity and compassion.
