WIS Perspective: An editorial on Give 11 in 2011

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The city of Columbia helped kick off the Give 11 in 2011 campaign last week by naming February 11, the Day of COR.

COR is a volunteer based non-profit focused on engaging Columbia's talented next generation in making a difference right here in their hometown.

Mayor Steve Benjamin said that in order for us to achieve our potential as a city, we must retain the best and brightest as well as activate our citizens to invest in themselves and our community.

The Give 11 in 2011 campaign asks city residents to:

  • give 11 hours of service to the community
  • invest 11 hours in personal leadership development,
  • tell 11 friends and colleagues to start the dialogue and
  • take 11 minutes to learn about the issues facing Columbia.

If you'd like to join me in taking the pledge or find out more about this exciting campaign, go to: www.ourcor.org

That's my perspective. Let me hear from you.
