"Unleash the hero within you."

This is an encouragement from the chosen CNN's Hero of the Year, Efren Penaflorida. Watch the following video to know more about his story.

Meet someone he saved from a dangerous road leading to a dark future.

Knowing people like Efren and seeing changed lives inspire me more to keep pushing our own "cart", the learning center and community library project. I'm excited to share to you that just yesterday we have successfully gotten our license to do community work as a non-profit foundation. It's sad to say that we needed to get a license to help but this is also wise for the government to have this law and more wiser for us to follow the law. Well, that's another topic for another post :). But if you wish to know more about our foundation, the poor children and families we are serving, and the opportunities to be involved, please leave a note and I'll be happy to email you more info.

And yes, Judy @ Benmakesten, you can help collect more books for our library. Thanks for making this your family's Advent project. I will email the information to you.

Efren's story has also become our homeschooler's inspiration this week. Visit out HS blog You Can Be A Hero! to see more heroes on the list.
