The Purpose Prize

I often look through the newspaper or online for inspiration in service work.  Though I am not burnt out quite yet doing volunteer work sometimes I just need a little extra spark of motivation to get the feet going.  Recently, I looked on the internet to find what's called "The Purpose Prize".  I was pleasantly surprised to see my next source of inspiration staring at me directly in the face.  The men and women highlighted are individuals who are avid humanitarians, just like me.  They aim to help in small ways, but end up affecting the world in much larger ways than they anticipated.  I can only hope that each of us PCV's can step into the same light.   Here is the link of Mr. Lardner, from Seattle, WA, my birth town.  Please check out some of the work that the people listed have done for us.
