This is a great idea and something to think about for next year. Heck, it might not even be too late for some to get involved today, depending on your time zone.

In 1994 Congress passed the King Holiday and Service Act, designating the King Holiday as a national day of volunteer service. Instead of a day off from work or school, Congress asked Americans of all backgrounds and ages to celebrate Dr. King's legacy by turning community concerns into citizen action. The King Day of Service brings together people who might not ordinarily meet, breaks down barriers that have divided us in the past, leads to better understanding and ongoing relationships, and is an opportunity to recruit new volunteers for your ongoing work.

They decided to have a holiday for the wrong person. Coretta Scott King did more to advance civil rights in this country than MLK ever did. He was nothing but a common rabble-rouser.
