Calling all college students!
Did you know that 89 million Americans volunteer?
Better yet, did you know that 46% of 18-24 year olds volunteer 3 or 4 hours a week?
It's true! This shows a dedication to volunteerism and political action beyond what students are generally known for.
This age group is the incoming generation of voters, policy makers and future leaders of America, and absolutely vital to the continuing success of volunteer service in their communities.
S.A.V.E. (Support American Volunteer Efforts) currently has a bill before Congress that if passed would grant up to $2,000 in a tax rebate to people who volunteer for nonprofit organizations. The only way to pass this bill is to let Congress know that Americans support it!

S.A.V.E (Support American Volunteer Efforts) is a nonprofit organization campaigning to pass bill HR4387, which is currently under review in the Ways & Means Committee of Congress.
If the bill were to be passed it would offer up to $2,000 per year in a tax rebate to every volunteer.
Volunteers are two a half times more likely to donate back to non-profits where they volunteer, and their communities. Rather than giving tax breaks to the wealthiest 1% of society this would help to put money back where it is sorely needed.
SAVE is a grass-roots organization. Our office has a staff of three full time employees and several volunteers. We're in the midst of a nation wide press release, selling the idea of SAVE to the media, non-profit and volunteer agencies around the country.
The only way to pass this bill is to let congress know that Americans support it.

Anyone planning to go to New Orleans or Biloxi to help hurricane victims?
I'd be interested in going, maybe some kind of carpool/vanpool or something?
Maybe FNB in L.A. has one, does anyone know?
