A staff photographer who surrendered his coveted position at National Geographic to inspire hundreds of millions of people worldwide to take action against environmental destruction and global warming. ? A recovering ****** addict, homeless from the age of 11, who now leads a fearless rescue team that is saving thousands upon thousands of suffering animals from horrific situations. ? A psychiatrist who left his practice after twenty-three years to address global poverty and began successfully lifting millions of people out of poverty across the world. ? A fifteen year-old boy who founded a non-profit to change the way farm animals are raised, and is dramatically transforming the treatment of millions of factory-farmed animals in 90 countries.
