Mitzvah Day 365 is a brilliant international day, dedicated to helping others through simple acts of kindness, goodwill and giving. These projects help to build stronger local communities and create valuable relationships between different faith groups.
Mitzvah Day takes place around Sunday November 22, 2015, and will see more than 37,000 volunteers of all faiths take part in collective, hands-on projects which make a real difference to local issues and support 150 different charities.
We have have lots of projects on this year from collecting warm, outdoor clothing to Gift Boxes for Barnados and Harrow Nature Conservation;
