At times a reader shares something inspired by my blog that takes the sentiment to a whole new level. Such was the case a few weeks ago when I wrote about the resilient spirits shining through the amputee musician I met in Cambodia.
The reader brought the story home when she shared that her work colleagues have been collecting ring tabs from soda cans. When they collect 1000 tabs they send the metal through the Lion’s Club to Cambodia where it is melted down and made into a prosthetic limb.
Something we typically throw away, combined with raising awareness of a need and a little ingenuity can make a big difference in the lives of others. If your work environment does not have a social impact program, it might be a very cool career move to start one.
