A POWERFUL MOVEMENT TO TRANSFORM, UNIFY AND UPLIFT AMERICA AND THE WORLD

100 for 100 logo
100M HOURS OF SERVICE FOR THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF MARTIN LUTHER KING JR'S BIRTHDAY.

Realize the Dream is a bold movement to rally communities to perform 100 million hours of service by the 100th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birth. It’s a call for us all to reach out to people and causes in need – and make a difference through acts of love, compassion and goodwill.

“Volunteering and service to others is not just about helping those in need; it’s also about building bridges and fostering understanding between people. It’s an opportunity to step outside our comfort zones and connect with others on a deeper, more meaningful level.
 

“This is a bedrock belief we share, and why our foundation collaborated with Legacy+ to create Realize the Dream. It is through these connections that we can begin to break down barriers and build a stronger, better and more unified America.” 



- MARTIN LUTHER KING III, ARNDREA WATERS KING & YOLANDA RENEE KING
