When I was a child our family was on welfare and not doing well. We were four children being raised by a single mother. Alan had never met us before, but ended up paying for our education and serving as a role model to me until this very day. Without his kindness and guidance it is hard to imagine that I would have been able to accomplish all that I have today.

We've all had people in our lives who have made a positive impact on us. A parent or grandparent, a sibling who was there for us, or maybe even just a guy who shines shoes for a living? Whoever they are, tell us their story so they can inspire us even more.Tell Us Your Story All Everyday Hero Stories
