Profiles of Change
Real People, Real Change
Life stories. They compel us, move us, inspire us and motivate us to change. And it isn't always the life story of a well-known individual that does it. In fact, the people you're probably most motivated by are the ones who are just like you.
These profiles are about real people who are making an effort toward real change in their homes, their communities and in the world. We want to tell a new story each week that will bring much deserved attention to projects large and small, in big cities and small towns.
And there will be a chance for you to participate, too! If you want to nominate someone for Profiles in Change, email us here. Keep in mind that the person being profiled should want to be interviewed, and should be making a change that is having a real impact in some way. In the coming months, you'll be able to comment on these stories and forward them to a friend.
