NPR needs your help to write a story across America about the good things that Americans are doing. Take part in E Pluribus Unum!
You already know that our country is split by political partisanship, socioeconomic disparities, religious differences, geographical inequities and other factors. Surely you've noticed: We are living in a disunited states.
Sometimes it's hard to focus on the ways we work together, the similarities among us. So that's what NPR would like to write about - with your help - together.
The story is about good deeds - people actively helping people. We are looking for examples of folks working creatively to serve others - a soup kitchen, a building project, an after-school program, etc . . .
The project is called Participation Nation. It's a cooperative effort about cooperative efforts. This is not a "Feel Good" blog or an attempt at "good news," but a straightforward look at Americans in Action.
NPR is asking YOU to participate. Please send a report, in one short paragraph (100 words or fewer), on some person or group who, by contributing to the community, is changing the world. And please include good, colorful photos of your subjects.
