It Only Takes A Little to BE BIG!

For four years, HandsOn Network, an enterprise of Points of Light, has worked with Scholastic’s BIG red dog to inspire youth engagement in service through the BE BIG™ campaign. BE BIG™ is a national campaign that invites everyone, big and small, to take action and raise awareness for how CLIFFORD'S BIG IDEAS (Share, Help Others, Be Kind, Be Responsible, Play Fair, Be a Good Friend, Believe in Yourself, Have Respect, Work Together and Be Truthful) can make the world a better place. The mission of BE BIG is to recognize and reward others for their BE BIG actions, to catalyze change in local communities and to provide resources for everyone to share BIG ideas. Being Big is about being Big-Hearted. It’s about having a Big Spirit. Being Big is something we should all do more often.

HandsOn Network is the largest network of 250 volunteer action centers that extend to 16 countries around the world. These centers help people find and engage in volunteer opportunities in their local communities. They also partner with more than 70,000 corporate, faith and nonprofit organizations to manage volunteer resources, and develop the leadership capacity of volunteers.

In honor of Clifford’s 50th birthday, Scholastic and HandsOn Network are excited to partner once again to activate the BE BIG campaign in local communities to raise awareness about Clifford's BIG Ideas. Learn where you can be BIG in your community!
