>Make a difference day in Ogden Utah

12 May

Today is make a difference day in Ogden Utah! The city celebrates this day by taking time out to help beautify Ogden, UT. What will you do for make a difference day? Today i will bike everywhere, take my daughter to the tree house museum and donate a booster seat i won from Weber Health to the women’s shelter. Making a difference can be a small act like helping someone with their groceries or holding open a door to something big like helping clean up the city or volunteering at a community center. Making a difference can even mean just supporting local. Every little act is important and on such a beautiful day like today its easy to get out and make someone smile. Remember good acts are contagious so go spread it around!
