Simple Solutions to Big Problems

 

Every week we look for stories of positivity and humanity to give us more reasons to celebrate. 

This week we are highlighting simple solutions to big problems. From a national shift in education tactics to daily shifts in our lives, they can all have a tremendous impact.

We hope one of these changes fills your heart.
