National Make A Difference Day is celebrated on the fourth Saturday of October each year as a way for individuals and organizations to come together to make a difference -- big or small. For more than 20 years, USA Weekend and Points of Light sponsored Make a Difference Day. Although they are no longer the promoters of this day, organizations and individuals continue to honor the day through acts of kindness and service.
