Now Is The Time To Send Birthday Wishes to Dr. King

This is a very important month - the month we remember Dr. King's birthday.

To help the Foundation celebrate this important occasion by sign the online birthday card today.

When you sign the card your name is added to the list of thousands who are remembering this important man and the invaluable legacy he left.

Born in Atlanta and on his 79th birthday, Dr. King's life and message are as relevant now as they were 40 years ago when an assassin's bullet prematurely ended his life.

By signing the card your signature is the first way you can honor his life and legacy.

But there's another way for you to help right now.

Add your name to the Founding Roll of Honor by making a secure online contribution of $79 or more to the Washington, D.C. Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Project.

The first Memorial to a person of color on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. you may remember, the Foundation must raise $100 million to formally break ground.

Having raised $87 million to date, just $13 million more must be raised before the Foundation can build the dream.

Now is the Time to:

Sign the special online birthday card to honor the legacy Dr. King has left, and make a special gift of $79 this month which is just $1 for each year since Dr. King was born to add your name to the Roll of Honor and help create a permanent place for Dr. King's legacy on the National Mall in Washington, DC.
