What organizations or people inspire you, and why?

The Nature Conservancy - They are seldom recognized for the work they do because they work behind the scenes to bring together groups that often are at odds with each other. The result is that many historical sites and important, valuable conservation tracts are saved from destruction. Colonial Williamsburg Foundation - They have restored the historical town of Willimsburg, VA to its historical presence of 1780 using tools, techniques, and similar materials as used in the 1700's. And they have dedicated themselves to revealing the true history of those times of our Revolutionary War.
