Hey TORCH Partner!
I was listening to MPR/NPR this morning on my way to work and I heard that NPR is writing a story about people doing things in the community to help connect with one another - they are calling this story Participation Nation.
Since MN is well known having a high number of citizens involved in philanthropy and volunteerism, wouldn't it be great to show HOW generous our community is? I know we Minnesotans tend not to brag about what we are doing - but we should at least tell our unique story!
Here is the link to the story: http://www.npr.org/blogs/participationnation/2012/08/02/157639147/-w-e-pluribus-unum
I thought I would send this to all of you - it would be great if you could submit your story! It could be about your volunteer or your YP group.
