The Restorative Power of Individuals and Nonprofits

Although I try to only blog on issues that "legally" affect nonprofits or at the very least have some legal aspect to them, I was nevertheless moved by a recent article in the Boston Globe, "Missouri tragedy inspires career shifts toward public aid."  As a former Missouri resident and firm believer in the impact that people can have through collaboration and commitment (via nonprofits), I thought this article was a great example of why most of us contributing to, and reading, this blog teach and work in the area of nonprofits.  The article discusses how young professionals, witnessing firsthand the destruction of their community, abandon their professions and jobs and join nonprofits to dedicate themselves to their town's and its citizens' long-term recovery.
