Best of 2013 – Our Bravest Heroes

Chance BetznerAs we bring this year to a close, we’d like to take a moment to recognize some of 2013’s bravest heroes. Not only have they helped to keep our faith in humanity strong, they’ve also reminded us that you can make a difference in the world, no matter what your size, age or even species!

These men and women in uniform have gone beyond the call of duty:

We hope our heroes have been an inspiration to you this year, and that they help make us all a little more aware of the world around us. Remember, even the smallest acts of kindness can have a huge impact in the lives of others!
