We all know that professional athletes earn large paychecks. We all also know that they don’t always put that good fortune to the best of use. Why do we know this though? Because only those stories are reported on as the feature story on the nightly news.

This is your source for these instances of good – updated weekly with a featured professional athlete that is working to make a difference in society.
