“All Together Now” is a production of the Points of Light Institute, an organization that inspires, equips and mobilizes people to take action that changes the world.
“I remain optimistic about America precisely because of the countless Points of Light who give so freely of themselves and claim one of society’s problems as their own, helping make life better for those around them in the process,” said President Bush. “The true strength of America has always been, and always will be, our people, and today we can take heart that more Americans of all ages are rolling up their sleeves and joining this movement to serve others.”
Seventeen-time Emmy winners George Stevens Jr. (“The Kennedy Center Honors”) and Michael Stevens (“The Kennedy Center Honors”) will serve as executive producers.
