Anybody can be great, because anybody can serve” – Martin Luther King, Jr
Yesterday saw the US Senate pass what called a key piece of the moral architecture of Pres Obama’s recovery plan – the Edward Kennedy Serve America Act. Named to honour Ted Kennedy who co-authored the bill, the legislation is designed to back the increasing number of Americans stepping forward to serve. Much is shared between the plans proposed by the bill and our own Office of the Third Sector. We too hear stories from across the country of more and more Brits stepping up to serve their communities. We’ll be announcing more measures to support Britain’s great volunteer army in the weeks to come. See Service Nation website for a good write-up of the US plans.
