President Barack Obama stands next to George W.H Bush during an event to honour the winners of 5000th Daily Point of White Awards at The White House in Washington D.C on 15th July 2013. Points of Light is the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service.
As President Barack Obama stated in The East Room, “”Volunteerism has gone from something that some people do some of the time to something that lots of people do as a regular part of their lives.”
The 5,000th award recipients, Floyd Hammer and Kathy Hamilton, pioneered the non-profit Outreach to provide free meals to the hunger-stricken and malnourished children in the U.S. and in fourteen other countries of the world.
