With every purchase of this stunning photography collection, an indestructible soccer ball is put into the hands of a child in "one of the world's toughest places." Buy a book, give a ball.
My hero is not necessarily the president of a country or a prime minister or a cabinet minister. It is somebody who has declared war on poverty, on disease, on illiteracy, and who is prepared to give human beings hope that there is a future for him or her. Those are my heroes.
--Nelson Mandela, at his home in Johannesburg in 2003, answering Tess's [Sager's daughter] question about who his heroes are.
