It's Thanks and Remembrance Week at! There are many different ways to give thanks this week. Giving back to your community is just one way to show your appreciation and help out those in need.

Some organizations require that you be 18 years or older to volunteer, but there are many places that welcome help from younger people and families. You can search out volunteer opportunities in your neighborhood and pick a cause or organization that interests you. Some good places to look are your local library, a soup kitchen, and nursing homes.

Do you already volunteer in your community? If so, what do you do and how did you become involved? What ideas do you have for giving back? Talk about it on the Changing the World discussion board at (sign-in required).
