Most people can't believe 20 years have past since the September 11, 2001 terror attacks in America. Immediately following, the world was united, saying "Never Forget." Kindness to strangers and community service were heightened across the world.
In 2021, the world is polarized struggling through the pandemic, in need of compassionate action.
To honor the live lost and volunteer heroes from that time, join us in our goal to recruit 20,000 people to do good deeds for the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
Encourage your workplace, school, house of worship and family to participate in the 19th annual Pay it Forward 9/11. Saturday, September 11, 2021 is a national day of service and remembrance in both the US and Canada and we already know participants will join from the UK and Australia.
To help create a ripple effect, you can inspire others to participate. Post your related plans and actions on our social media channels, using #PayitForward911.
