The International Community Ambassadors Network (I!CAN)
cordially invites you to be a part of the
2011 Juanita Sims Doty Day of Service
Our friends and neighbors all over the City of Jackson, the State of Mississippi, the United States of America and indeed the world are invited to share with us in the second Juanita Sims Doty Day of Service. Last year, we embarked upon the inaugural Juanita Sims Doty Day of Service (proclaimed by Jackson Mayor Harvey Johnson, Jr.), and we invited you to join us. This year, we are doing it again and we want you to once again be a part of this endeavor. This year our focus is on children and we ask that all submitted projects be centered around helping children.
The International Community Ambassadors Network (I!CAN) was established to promote volunteerism through Collaboration, Cooperation, Coalition Building, and Community Engagement and Outreach. The Day of Service is designed to ignite a 'Spirit of Service' throughout our City, our State, our Nation and our World. We want to show what working together and providing service can do to improve our communities. We want everyone to get involved!
On this Day of Service, you are invited to participate in a service project in your community, individually or with a group. Choose a project that excites you and be creative in its creation and implementation! Choose a project in which others will benefit! Most importantly, choose a project that is meaningful! Just as last year, the objective is to SERVE!
Upon completion of your project, please visit www.juanitasimsdoty.com and click on Day of Service to share with us the project you implemented. When you send us your information, you will become eligible to receive the "I!CAN" Recognition Award. Three recipients will be honored this year with a monetary contribution from the Juanita Sims Doty Foundation to continue a legacy of service in their communities.
The 1st and 2nd place winners for 2010 were Lanier High School (Family Resource Center, Jackson, MS) and Ms. Chelsea Rodgers, Miss Black District of Columbia (Walter Reed Veteran Hospital, Washington, D.C.). Will you be among the honorees for 2011? We look forward to recognizing you or your organization for the service you provide in our communities.
