As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 is remembered, the Huffington Post highlights three nonprofits created as a result of that day. In the days and weeks after September 11, 2001, the country rallied around the rescue effort at Ground Zero. The public poured their support for victims and their families. Individuals volunteered and donated supplies and money as the country struggled to grasp this tragedy.
In response to the immense outpouring of support, victims and families of victims of 9/11 kept the spirit of service alive by creating nonprofit organizations that carry on this spirit. Here are three.
