Daughter of former Cat makes a difference

How about a little feel-good story for your Friday morning?  As a a part of their “Heroes” series, CNN has recognized 16 year-old Mackenzie Bearup, the daughter of former UK big man Bret Bearup.  Mackenzie, who discovered how much reading helped her when battling her own illness, now works to collect and supply books to children who are victims of abuse or homelessness and, since 2007, has donated over 38,000 books.  According to the story, she’s even started her own non-profit organization.  So, raise your glass to Mackenzie Bearup, a CNN Hero.  And, if you’re feeling extra generous, you can donate here.
