Bread for myself is a material question. Bread for my neighbor is a spiritual one. ~Nicholas Berdyaev

*My Own Two Hands, Ben Harper & Jack Johnson

ONE person can change another's life. Can change a family-community-country.

Be it the man on the street giving lunch to the homeless - The nurse holding a lonely elderly woman's hand as she passes from here to eternity - The teenager investing his summer job money to rescue a girl trapped in the sex slave trade.

Oh, how I love to hear how ONE person changed a life and made a difference.

So each day this week, I want to highlight those ONE(s) who make a difference. They inspire me. I hope they'll inspire you too.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
~Dr. Seuss
TOMS {www.toms.com}
In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One. Check out these smiles as they give away their 1,000,000th pair of shoes! {taken directly from TOMS website}

Oh to be there putting shoes on these precious feet! Hope you love this video as much as I do!!
