Get Involved Already!

Dave Eggers has a great example of how each of us can get involved in this recent speech. In case you don't remember who he is he is the author of "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius". In the speech he talks about a community program he started several years ago where he offers free tutoring to school children of all ages. He figured there should be a way to harness all of the professional writing talent in his community and it ended up going far being just the writing community. Spanning over 1400 tutors and several partner locations around the country, Eggers is on to something with his fresh approach to volunteerism. It will be hard for you to not get involved after seeing this clip...
