For information about 9/11 Day 2013 find up-to-date event resources on the Points of Light website.


Sept. 11, 2011 marked the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, a moment that through tragedy brought together cultures, bridged differences and united citizens of goodwill around the world in a spirit of unity and commitment. In tribute to all those who were lost and tens of thousands who rose in service, more than one million volunteers did charitable acts of service on this National Day of Service and Remembrance.

In support of this historic anniversary, MyGoodDeed and HandsOn Network, the volunteer activation division of Points of Light Institute, led a coalition of national partners to present the 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance. More than 1 million Americans did acts of charitable serve in their communities.
