On a well-traveled street in Berlin, Germany, recently, passers-by stopped at the Mormon Helping Hands display at the Sony Center and experienced a hands-on service project. The daylong event on 16 October 2011 allowed Mormon Helping Hands volunteers to help the people of Europe catch the spirit of volunteering by engaging them in helping children with cancer.
