On Friday, BSA kicked off our inaugural Global Day of Service – a day for the BSA team around the world to donate some time as a group to public service. It was gratifying on many levels, including seeing the great ideas and wonderful generosity of spirit from our global team.
In DC, I joined many of my colleagues near the FDR memorial on the National Mall to pick up trash and haul driftwood from along the shore of the Potomac River. We spent several hours filling many, many bags of trash and 2 tons of driftwood.
Singapore added beauty to our great outdoors with the Singapore National Park Service.
London volunteered at The Passage, a homeless shelter in Westminster, preparing and serving lunch.
Brussels got into the giving spirit by providing pro-bono advice to educational NGO start-ups on communication strategy, partnerships, and grants.
Warsaw worked with a non-profit, Your Case Association, that combats negative ads aimed at children.
BSA’s Global Day of Service enables us all to do something good “together,” even if we’re spread out across the world. Thanks to all who participated!
