Subject: Citizen Corps E-News - Vol. I, Issue 7 (July 30,2002)
Today President Bush launched the newly redesigned USA Freedom Corps web site and the new USA Freedom Corps volunteer network while celebrating the six-month anniversary of the USA Freedom Corps. The USA Freedom Corps network brings together the resources of clearing houses -- including Citizen Corps programs -- in one place to offer potential volunteers opportunities to get involved with more than 50,000 organizations through a landmark e-government initiative and public-private partnership. To help make a difference in communities across the country and around the world, the President also launched a new public service advertising campaign designed to start people thinking of what they can do to help others. The ads send viewers, listeners and readers to http://www.usafreedomcorps.gov.
Please check out the new web site and the public service announcements and consider passing this information along to friends and family members to offer them a new way to get involved. If you pass it along to five people, you can make a real difference in the life of a child or a senior. If you pass it along to ten, you may start to change a community. And if you keep going, you'll be making a difference in the effort to change America -- one heart at a time.
