They're all pretty amazing people, for example, my favorite:
Phymean Noun, Toronto, Ontario --And keeping this post connected with home construction, there's:
Growing up in Cambodia, Noun struggled to complete high school. Today, she offers hundreds of Cambodian children who work in Phnom Penh's trash dump a way out -- through free schooling and job training. peopleimprovement.org
Liz McCartney, St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana --How cool are those?
McCartney moved to New Orleans to dedicate herself to helping Hurricane Katrina survivors move back into their homes. Her nonprofit St. Bernard Project has rebuilt the homes of more than 120 families for free.
I was able to go on the Carter Work Project with Habitat for Humanity to the Gulf Coast earlier this year, and although coverage of Ike's destruction is already fading from people's memories, there's still tons to do from Katrina, Rita, et al, 3 years later.
In any event, go read the article, and be inspired by these people, and vote!
