France or Belgium? Nope, Thailand
Much of the world watched a World Cup semifinal today between Belgium and France and cheered for one or the other. Most of the world watched another soccer team emerge victorious today. That one was a bunch of kids in Thailand who had been stuck in a cave. In case you are in your own cave and haven’t followed the story – they got them out OK. All of them. Well done, Thailand.
Many of the rescuers who got the kids soccer team out of the cave in Thailand were volunteers from all over the world. And as the BBC reports in this video, they were backed by other volunteers who helped them out behind the scenes.
More people just getting stuff done

Just more ordinary people out there trying to do something to make the community better.
