Colin Powell Announces USAService.org
AARP cover guy and Inspire Award-winner, Gen. Colin Powell who is an honorary co-chair of the Presidential Inauguration, announced "Renew America Together" volunteering initiative launching around MLK Day.
The AP reported:

"I think it will capture the imagination of the American people," Powell said, adding that there was a "fervor" for the new administration that should be tapped. The goal is to make public service a greater priority throughout American life. "It's not enough, I think, just to do it one day a year," Powell said.


Check out the new site and photos from the launch. We agree and look forward to "creating some good" with them in the years to come!
