Excerpt from: Virgin (click for full article)
There should be an equivalent to the Nobel Prize for the remarkable individuals who set up two organisations that have transformed so many people's lives.
Chad Varah set up The Samaritans to help people who are on the verge of giving up on their lives. Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith set up AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) who transform so many desperate lives. More than two million people count themselves as members and they have helped millions more over the years.
All three of these people are no longer with us but their work lives on and I keep on bumping into people whose lives have been saved.
