Love this. Good idea, sustainable, simple but impactful: "What happens to an impoverished developing nation town when you flood it with 20,000 bicycles? You lift three times that number of people out of poverty. Pedals for Progress and founder David Schweidenback have been shipping used American bicycles to Rivas, Nicaragua for the last two decades and the transformation has been incredible." They need donations to complete the film, here's where to give, if you're so inclined.
Some feel-good adorableness from Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros. I think Jade Castrinos is sensational.
If you need a little levity in your day, or are just a sucker for adorable kids like I am, check out this tiny ballerina trying to master first position. I laughed so hard I cried. Who can't relate to this??
