Shut Up and Do Something

Mar 12, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

America needs volunteers. Only 25% of us get involved in causes. But there are people who act. And they make a great difference within their communities and the lives of others. What sets them apart from the rest of us? Where does their motivation come from? There is a spark that occurs between intention and action. We all need to discover what that is for each of us. Many of us have great thoughts. Helpful ideas. But fewer of us turn those thoughts into action. Especially to help others. This panel will include people who have turned ideas into impact. They’ll tell us how it happened for them. The moments that led to movements. How it can and will happen for each of us.
