On the right sidebar you may notice an ever-growing list of links to “people and organizations we like”.
“What does one do to make this illustrious list of links?” one might ask. “Is it just a matter of chocolate and Cheetos-based bribery?”
Well, yes. But apart from that, what makes these guys stand out (and inspires me) is that they’ve devoted themselves to making a positive impact on the world—and others’ lives.
As charities, CIC’s and social entrepreneurs, they’ve identified a need in their community. Not content to accept it, moan about it or pass the buck to someone else—they’ve chosen to dedicate their passion and energy to creating a solution. And do you know what? They’re good at it! When you see them in action, the air around them fills with a tangible buzz. Their conversation will leave you both dizzy and energized, as a cloud of new ideas swarms around the space between your ears. These are my personal heroes. They spur me on to try, practice, and improve what I do and I strive to stay remotely in their league.
Which brings me to tonight’s addition to the list: Spandy Andy.
