Why would a little girl in the Rocky Mountains feel such a connection to kids living in the mountains of Taliban country? "I don't know. It just comes up in my mind, and it fills my heart with love," Atwell says thoughtfully. But segueing quickly into savvy fundraising mode she asks, "I've heard that a penny buys a pencil.

Morgan represents a new uprising: a rush to step into the gap between the developed and developing worlds, to give back all around the globe - and across the United States. They and millions of their counterparts are powering a give-back movement no one saw coming: ordinary people - you, me, your neighbor down the street, and your aunt in Ohio - going head to head with extraordinary third-world poverty, AIDS, malaria, illiteracy, the lack of safe drinking water, and tough challenges here at home - and having the time of our lives in the process.
