How Did 9/11 Inspire You?

Send us your story to win $250 for charity!

The events of September 11, 2001 touched us all and for many, forever changed our lives. We want to hear how the events of 9/11 changed your life—but maybe not in the way you're thinking.

We’re looking for stories from men and women who were inspired after 9/11 to make life changes, both large and small. Whether you were inspired to spend more time with family and friends, become more involved with Church, donate, volunteer, start a charity, or to otherwise become more involved in your community—we want to hear your story! Please send your story to no later than September 16, 2011. Our editors will choose the story they feel to be most inspiring and the winner will receive $250 to donate to the charity of their choice. You and your story may also be chosen to be featured on Beliefnet.

We look forward to hearing your story!
