“In 1990, President George H.W. Bush created the Daily Point of Light Award for individuals making a difference. From the White House, he formally recognized more than 1,000 volunteers as “points of light,” highlighting the volunteer movement that became a defining mission of the Bush administration.
Points of Light reinstated the Daily Point of Light Award in 1998, with a mission to honor those who take action to create change in their communities, and in 2014 the award program expanded to the United Kingdom. To date, more than 6,000 awards have been given to individuals who represent the heart and soul of our country and, through them, the legacy of President Bush lives on.” – pointsoflight.org
