Profiles in selflessness

One of many positive aspects of having a friend like Danielle Teal? She inspires me to do more to make the world a better place. One negative? She makes me realize how little I actually am doing.

For the year 2012, Danielle attempted to perform one act of kindness each day for the 366 days of the year, all the while working full time, taking classes and preparing to give birth in September . She even documented the process via a daily blog post.

Her latest endeavor is a home grown idea which sprung from her own emotional trial just prior to giving birth to a daughter last Fall. Tiaras with Love is described as "an inspirational cause that sends by request/referral a tiara to a woman or girl in need of support facing challenges or obstacles in her life."

Danielle, a resident of Rochester, has been such a pillar in her community that her philanthropy rarely goes unnoticed. As such, the local Fox TV news affiliate share her story earlier this week.

It takes a special individual to overcome his/her own pain and channel those emotions into helping others feel better about themselves. Of all the things I admire about Danielle, that attribute is near the top. You're awesome, DT!
