“If you want to be important - wonderful. If you want to be recognized - wonderful. If you want to be great - wonderful. But recognize that he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. Thats a new definition of greatness.”

If you want to be important - wonderful. If you want to be recognized - wonderful. If you want to be great - wonderful. But recognize that he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. That's a new definition of greatness. And this morning, the thing that I like about it: by giving that definition of greatness, it means that everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

How lucky we are that our nation sets aside a day to be great together in service to our communities, especially during trying times. At Percolator, we’d like to encourage you to make Monday a “day on” instead of a day off and join in the MLK Day of Service.

And of course we must offer you some engagement technology to help! Find service opportunities near you with this searchable database from nationalservice.gov and allforgood.org. We’ve already tagged that link to find the MLK Day events; you just need to know your zip code.

No database is complete without testing, so we found each of the Percolator staff — a bicoastal crew — a chance to help near them.

See, no matter where you are, we bet there’s a way you can help your hometown this — and every — weekend. Tell us on twitter where you found your greatness!
