This month we are collecting your stories about the good things Americans are doing to make their communities better.
We're calling this project Participation Nation. It's a cooperative effort about cooperative efforts.
We are asking you to participate. Please send us a report, in one short paragraph (100 words or fewer), on some person or group who, by contributing to the community, is changing the world. And please include good, colorful photos of your subjects.
So how do we get started?
Well, this is the beginning of the story. We will write the first entry from here in Washington. And we may contribute some other reports along the way. But you will write the rest — and the best — of the tale.
