C1Make a Difference Day is October 28th in Atlanta. It is always held on the fourth Saturday of October. This is a nationally recognized day of service where volunteers across the country unite to work on various projects and make a difference in the lives of individuals, families, and groups.

If you are looking for a way to get involved, Make a Difference Day has a website where you can search by city and state or zip code to find something in your area. There are even projects that include children so you can start them off early thinking about how they can make a difference in the lives of others. C3

It’s also an ideal day to recognize someone else or an organization that is making a difference by gifting them with a special flower arrangement or bouquet. Our Thank You and Appreciation Collection offers a way to show that you value what others are doing in making a difference. Plus, you are also making a difference by encouraging others with your special gift.

Here are some ideas for Make a Difference Day gifts:
