Here is an inspirational story about Veronika, a girl from Detroit, who thanks to a college class got an idea that would end up changing lives of hundreds of homeless people. She is only 24.
Veronica wanted to design a coat that transforms into a sleeping bag for a school project, but ended up doing much more than that. She gave people using homeless shelters one thing they needed most. This girl is the real life example of a proverb “Give man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” A truly inspirational story and a great one for all all to learn as we start the New Year. Instead of promising to lose weight then eating cake the next day, how about making a New Year resolution where you can help other people and make a difference like Veronika. You don’t need to start a clothing factory for homeless to help people in need but a less narcissistic resolution sure seems like a good way to start 2015.
