People Doing Good

There are so many people doing wonderful things in the world. Unfortunately most of their work goes unnoticed in favor of stories perpetuating fear and anger in the media. Although it is very important to be a ware of the injustices in the world, it is also important to see that there are people out there creating positive change and making a difference. If it is known that there are people helping to make our world a better place, it can inspire others to do the same.

Below are articles and videos about people doing wonderful things for the world, just as we are trying to do in New Equations. Feel free to click around and be inspired!

Watch her video to learn about her amazing story.

Cows getting to see the grass for the first time after being freed from captivity. This is the work of Leonardo Anselmi, an animal rights activist based in Peru. He is making great progress in liberating animals from captivity as well as abolishing bullfighting. He believes in coexisting with animals, not keeeping them trapped in cages. Check out his facebook page to see more videos and posts about what he’s up to and learn more about his accomplishments. 



In Seattle there is a place where the young and old get to spend their days together. It is called Providence Mt. St. Vincent; a building shared by a senior center and a day care. It is beautiful to see how they are able to help each other in unique and different ways that they would not get otherwise. So many seniors in America spend their days alone, wouldn’t it be a wonderful innovation if this could become widespread across America?
