Don Campbell loved to cook from an early age. When he was 10 years old, he fed his family and developed his culinary skills. As an adult, Don kept an open table and would feed up to 40 children from the neighborhood at a time. After an earthquake struck Haiti in 2010, he and his wife, Kristen, were inspired to help people recuperate and sustain their lives. Gathering all $9,000 from their life-savings account, the couple partnered with a food-aid organization and founded Feeding Children Everywhere. Just 90 days later, they shipped the first 250,000 meals into Haiti.
Today, Feeding Children Everywhere mobilizes volunteers—from small groups to groups of thousands—who assemble nutritious meals for undernourished children. Since its inception, the organization has delivered more than five million meals around the world and filled the pantries of US public schools through its Love Local program.
World-renowned and highly regarded, The Princeton Review helps prepare students for getting into college, law school, and grad school through a fleet of exam-prep classes.

In addition to leading group classes, the teachers offer in-person and online private-tutoring services, which are customized to each pupil's learning needs.
A CBS veteran, comic Jason Hunter draws on experience as an opening act for such comedians as Bob Saget, Dave Attell, and Pablo Francisco to lob laughs with his own style of brazen, fearless comedy described by his Bonkerz bio as “self-evaluation humor.” Jason tackles topics such as his own marriage and pop culture head on with a shameless approach that conquers subjects without fear, apprehension, or worry that a league of overprotective moms might be loitering in the audience. As a headliner, Jason’s jokes have graced the screen on FOX, CBS’ Comedy Night School, and the film A Guy Walks into a Bar.
Although it was the burst of light from a Polaroid flash bar that initially drew Aubrey James to the photo world, the photographer prefers to work with her subjects in natural light. During shoots, she follows couples, children, and families through the park or along the beach, capturing a sense of fun and relaxation that simply cannot be replicated in the studio. After sessions, Aubrey retouches images and provides clients with the option to purchase prints or digital images that can be shared with grandparents who live in the Internet now.
Originally set afloat as the Florida Athletic Club in 1968, the Orlando Rowing Club promotes paddle sports through a variety of competitive and recreational offerings. Introductory rowing courses establish a buoyant foundation for more advanced levels of the sport, familiarizing students with fundamental equipment, techniques, and safety basics, such as the proper handling of boats saddled with a crippling fear of water. Serving as a testament to the club's dedicated instructors, previous members have splashed their way to the rowing world's apex by winning national championships and regional races. The club also offers classes in sculling and dragon boating as well as team-building services, which provide a bruise-free alternative to building inverted human pyramids to enhance office unity.
Share the Care's five adult daycare centers provide activities within a safe, friendly environment for physically and cognitively impaired adults, including those with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease. Enrollees can stay at the center for anywhere from a few hours to the entire workday, and each center is staffed with on-site nurses and experienced care providers to ensure safety. To help improve the mental and physical health of its clients, Share the Care would like to incorporate the Xbox 360 with Kinect into their daily activities. Since it tracks body movements and does not require a controller, the Xbox 360 with Kinect can encourage mental and physical activity among aging or disabled adults. The system supports a variety of games that aim to improve balance and coordination through physical activity, which may also aid in decreasing symptoms of depression and loneliness.
