It’s been on my mind because the world seems to need our help more than ever and also because the people we celebrate in this issue didn’t hesitate to meet the moment. They didn’t ask why me or wait for permission or get caught up in self-doubt. They just 移動しました.

いつ ミラ・クニスRussia invade Ukraine, she didn’t expect to deliver aid to the Ukrainian people. But when friends reached out, assuming Mila could tell them where to give, since she was born in Ukraine, “I knew I had to help,” 彼女が言います. Not knowing where to start didn’t slow her down: “We didn’t have a solution, so we created one.” 現在まで, she’s raised $37 million for refugees in need.

Taking action can sound so big, so monumental. But often it’s just taking one step and then the next. As Mila put it, “助けて - 頼んでもいない, するだけ - 私たちの標準的な規範であるべきです。”

I hope this issue inspires you to make a difference in your corner of the world.
