Today August 19th, 2011 is World Humanitarian Day.  Do you love helping others in need or have an idea that could change the world? You are a humanitarian.

humanitarian is a person who seeks to promote human welfare, also known as a philanthropist. World Humanitarian Day is a day to celebrate people helping people. This day seeks to recognize the sacrifices and contributions of those who work tirelessly to help others in need.

I would like to take this day and this space to thank each and every humanitarian for the work that they do.

A few famous humanitarians:

Mother Teresa

Mahatma Gandhi

Martin Luther King

Nelson Mandela
