9/11 Day is the international non-profit movement to observe September 11 every year as a
day of charitable service and doing good deeds. Created soon after 9/11 to provide a positive
way to forever remember and pay tribute to the 9/11 victims, to honor those that rose in service
in response to the attacks, and remind people of the importance of working more closely together
in peace to improve our world. Today millions participate annually by taking time out on 9/11
to help others in need, in their own way.
9/11 Day was founded and is lead each year by MyGoodDeed, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, tax exempt
organization. MyGoodDeed also lead the successful effort to secure the formal designation
of September 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance, which was supported on a bipartisan
basis by former President George W. Bush, formally authorized in 2009 under federal law approved
by Congress, and established officially by President Barack Obama under a Presidential Proclamation.
MyGoodDeed's 9/11 Advisory Board include 20 leaders of prominent organizations representing
9/11 families, first responders, volunteers, and other impacted by the 9/11 attacks in New
York, Washington, D.C., Boston, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
The Single Largest Day of Charitable Service in United States History
In 2011, for the 10-year anniversary of 9/11, MyGoodDeed, partnered with HandsOn Network,
the volunteer activation arm of the Points of Light Institute, to successfully co-lead efforts
to organize the single largest day of charitable service in United States history. A record
33 million people engaged in charitable service in observance of 9/11. This year, many other
organizations as well, continue to promote and build upon the 9/11 Day Observance and are
expanding its reach internationally.
