Touched by an "Oprah"

I was watching Oprah today and she had people who literally changed the world, one person at a time.

Her first guest was a woman who read to kids in a shelter and then realized that they didn't have pajamas to wear when they were read bedtime stories. So she began collecting pairs from people and donating them to the shelter. She called it her Pajama Program Then the magic of Oprah came in and she had her audience bring in pairs of jammies so this woman could have. They brought in over 30,000 pairs!

Another story was about a man who wanted to change the lives of the kids in Napal and so he started a library program to help the kids. The last was a woman who cut out coupons to help the poor.

And this got me to thinking: What can I do to help the world? What can you do readers? Ideas?
