Michael Guggenheim's program, Showing People Learning and Technology (SPLAT), is a perfect example of overcoming one's own challenges and then using what was learned to help others. Of course, not everyone starts a charity or changes a community. But there are other ways of helping people: One good friend of mine assembles care packages for U.S. troops serving overseas; another leads a group of teenagers at his church. And a bunch of folks at Turner, where I work, spend a lot of time volunteering.
How do you (or how does a friend of yours) help others? Large-scale or small, whether it's for people or pets, let us know right here how someone you know is making a positive difference.
