Summary

What better way to improve your world than to show a sense of compassion and empathy for those in need?This collection celebrates those who give the special gift of their time. Inside, youll find fifty original, true stories that feature examples of people whose good deeds make life a little bit easier--children on the other side of the globe, next-door neighbors in a bind, or a friend staying brave in the face of illness.Written by men and women, young and old, this collection is not only a touching tribute to those who see our world as a work in progress--but also an inspiration for anyone who wants to make a difference.
