    In 2009, Bill Muckerman, a sales executive from Mooresville, N.C., decided he wanted to devote some of his free time to volunteer work. He approached the community service organization Hands On Charlotte and since then has become one of its star volunteers, having logged more than 500 volunteer hours. In addition, he volunteers dozens of hours each year for other community projects in the Charlotte area. – See more at: http://www.pointsoflight.org/blog/2014/02/04/free-time-put-good-use#sthash.wXETLwiZ.dpuf

    Who knew that counting beads could help change the world? Mary Fisher had a notion it would. The AIDS activist and author immediately saw the power of connecting beads to good deeds after meeting a filmmaker who told her about a game he played with his children to track their anonymous acts of kindness. “I was fascinated by this,” says Fisher, 65, from her home in Sedona, Ariz.

    Mic Monday…The idea of combining service and leadership is one that defined the life of Cesar Chavez. He dedicated his life to bringing attention to the poverty of migrant farmworkers and other segments of the population that were marginalized or overlooked. Chavez also showed us that, no matter how humble our beginnings, we can all accomplish great things.During Cesar Chavez Day on March 31, the White House will recognize a group of Americans who are building on his legacy of service as Champions of Change.
