What a difference a day makes. Or can make.

We’ve had our eye on a Ning Network that has been — for about the last six months — counting down the days, hours, and minutes until one important day: this Sunday.

One Day on Earth’s goal is at once high-minded and idealistic, but ultimately simple in its execution. They want to create an archive of global media to affect positive change, and they intend to include in that archive video footage that represents every single country in the entire world. They’re asking as many people as possible to contribute at least one minute of film that is shot during the 24-hour period of one particular day: 10/10/10.

What’s great about this project is that, with the near ubiquity of mobile phones sporting video cameras, nearly everyone can use (or borrow) a video camera and take just a few minutes out of their Sunday for a unique cause that will stretch a memorable day into an ongoing story. By participating, it will at the very least be a story you can tell on Monday. But more importantly, your story will add up with thousands of other stories to tell One Big Story.

So, what story will you tell this Sunday?
