21 people who did something to make the world a better place

Before expecting the world to change in a blink of an eye, remember that it all starts with the tiniest of gestures. Some people are fully aware of this and relentlessly do what they can to change or help our world to evolve.

They don't expect others to realise their dreams on their behalf. They see where an improvement can be made and just get on with it. And it's this tiny attention to detail that often makes a world of difference! Check out the people below, who decided to act before it's too late and make our lives just that little bit easier.
