Tip/Thought of the Week: Who Says There Is Nothing Good On the News

While I was trying to stay up to speed on the election coverage I stumbled upon something really wonderful on CNN. It is the CNN Heroes campaign. People from all over nominated others who they feel deserve recognition for the work they have done to make the world a better place. CNN then chose 10 finalists and put together a short bio about their charity work. Go to Vote on the Hero you feel deserves the grand prize that will help their organization grow. Take some time to watch the video bios. They are only about 2 minutes long and very inspiring. I voted for Marie Da Silva who opened a school in Malawi for children who have been orphaned by AIDS. It is hard to pick though! All 10 finalists are truly amazing people. I know we are all strapped for time these days and money is tight. We may not be able to do all that we want for charities and other good causes, but voting for CNN Heroes is a great opportunity to lend your support to some one who has dedicated their lives to helping others.
