Feel Good Friday - Bay Area Proud

We've spent the last few weeks out and about in the world so this Feel Good Friday we bring it home to the San Francisco Bay Area!

My goal for Inspiration Safari, and the Feel Good Friday series, is to share stories and videos of people making a positive difference in communities around the world. One NBC station is sharing similar stories with a local focus in a series called "Bay Area Proud".

"Each week NBC Bay Area's Garvin Thomas profiles the people, the groups, and the companies making the Bay Area, and the world, a better place to live. Bay Area Proud stories are success stories; inspiring profiles of those making a positive change in our communities."

Having just highlighted people cleaning up from the earthquake in Nepal last week, this story (and video) of a man who has been cleaning up the streets of Oakland for 36 years caught my eye.  36 years! Watch it here. 

You can learn about other members of our community who will make you proud by searching through the stories at this link: Bay Area Proud You don't need to own a TV to stay inspired by your neighbors! 

To make sure you always know what the latest and greatest story is, like the Facebook page and follow the reporter, Garvin Thomas on Twitter @garvinthomas. I wonder if he'll ever want a co-host...
