Ginger Luke rescued her first dog in 2006—a dachshund that was kept locked in its owner’s bathroom and was in danger of being put down. After paying the pet’s owner $50, she retrieved the dog and began networking with her friends to find it a loving home. Today, Ginger's Pet Rescue continues this mission of saving as many dogs as possible from being euthanized. Since its establishment, it has found homes for more than 5,000 dogs. Volunteers from the organization rescue the dogs from shelters across the region, provide medical care and temperament examinations, and place them in loving, permanent homes.

A child's literacy skills are an early indicator of how he or she will fare in school. Kids whose parents read to them and give them a chance to read on their own at an early age often stand a better chance of succeeding academically and beyond. Page Ahead, in collaboration with local schools and social-service agencies, has distributed nearly 2 million new books to 605,000 children in need. By doing so, Page Ahead aims to foster developing language and reading skills and to ensure that more students will continue reading at or above grade level throughout their school careers.
