Celebrating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, we remember his words:
“An individual has not started living fully until they can rise above the narrow confines of individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of humanity … Every person must decide at some point, whether they will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness… Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?” August, 1957
Today, you can answer this question. Not with words, but with action. Instead of taking the day off, use this day to volunteer. Dr. King dedicated his life to serving others. As a civil rights activist and humanitarian, he spoke out against racial discrimination, economic inequality, and social injustice.
There are many ways you can serve: volunteer at a community food bank, participate in a community clean-up project, or collect food and coats for those who need it. If you’re not sure where to begin, check out websites like volunteermatch.org or idealist.org where you can find ways to volunteer in your community.
If you do volunteer today, consider taking a photo and sharing it with the OnAir community through the Sustainable Selfie Challenge. In the spirit of Dr. King, we love working together to inspire one another.
