“Everyone is bothered by something. The question is, do we bother to do anything about it? Effecting meaningful social change doesn’t start with an army or a mountain of money – it starts with the desire to act. When a Change Agent recognizes a problem, they are compelled to become the solution. They are influencers who inspire like-minded individuals to get involved. Some of them are born leaders who raise money and set up programs, but most of them are normal people who do whatever their busy schedule allows. Change Agents don’t just act like they care – they care enough to act.”

Check out the volunteer page on Kenneth Cole’s Awareness page here.  It doesn’t get easier than this.  Simply enter your zip code and a list of available volunteer opportunities in your area, in a variety of different arenas, along with the contact information, are listed.
