October 17th, 2012, is GLOBAL DIGNITY DAY around the world, and I am proud to report that we now have the most countries ever to sign up to conduct a GLOBAL DIGNITY DAY, at 50 countries total to date!
This is so amazing, and it is because of the YGL (Young Global Leader), Global Shapers and other communities of leaders around the world -- leading through service -- that this is possible!
To become a part of this global movement on October 17th, 2012 in your town, city, community, state or country.....go here.
Okay, let's go....
