A young Malawanian teenager, William Kamkwamba, wanted to help his village by bringing electricity and running water to his people. He found an old textbook, saw the picture of a windmill and he began to build his own turbine out of spare parts of a bicycle, a tractor, plastic pipes and other pieces of, well, junk. He created a windmill that was able to pump power!

Wedding Bells in a nursing home

Jane Hartstein got the surprise of her life when her daughter, Nicole, and her fiance, Edward Guida, decided that they would get married at the Gurwin Jewish Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, just so Jane could be a part of the ceremony! Jane, who has been on a ventilator for the past 3 years after a stroke, was “completely shocked’ when she saw her daughter in her wedding dress, “I’m just so happy, I can’t believe they did this.” Gurwin helped by transforming the respiratory wing into a wedding chapel complete with lights and a chuppa. Proving that sharing love is the best, Jane teared up when the new bride and groom finally kissed, “This is the best gift anyone could ever have given me.”
