This is a list about those people. The people that make us believe there’s some good left in this world worth fighting for. So, here are 25 Real-Life Heroes We Want To Meet.

Before you ask, no, Robin is not on this list because we share name (but it doesn’t hurt). Robin has actually done quite a lot of volunteer work providing fresh food, that she’s grown herself, for homeless people in her community.

She started it after discovering that her local homeless shelter could only provided canned foods.

What started as something she did herself, she now has over 200 volunteers helping her and she one day hopes to grow her organization to national level.
