You don't have to be Superman to make a dent in Nashville's unemployment and homeless numbers
As an individual, we doubt our ability to have any effect on big numbers like that. You don't have to be Superman; anybody can make an impact in someone else's life.
My school, MBA, partners with Just.Glass—a curbside glass recycling program that employs the unemployed. We make a difference in two ways: reducing carbon dioxide emissions AND providing work for those who were homeless or unemployed.
Maybe you won't put a dent in the homeless and unemployment number, but you can make a difference in the life of another.
