Making a Difference is a series about making the world a better place. Each title features 12 engaging, inspiring, often touching stories from the present and the past of individuals, groups, organizations, businesses, and communities helping people, animals, and the planet. Some work on a national or global scale, with ample resources. Others are grassroots, local, and on a shoestring. All are proof that caring counts and anyone can get involved, including kids and teens. In Arkansas, a 12yearold girl made wishes come true for seniors in a local nursing home. In Canada, people are joining together to help seniors feel less lonely and isolated. The National Council on Aging works with thousands of organizations and businesses across the US to improve the lives of people aged 60 and older. This book features 12 stories about making a difference for seniors. Each chapter includes attentiongrabbing photos and fascinating facts. Sidebars go beyond the basics, and prompts invite readers to think for themselves. A Ways You Can Help page offers suggestions anyone can try.
