Most of us realize we use some powerful filters to decide what to click on when we are on the web. But what if those filters are occasionally leaving out some real gems?
Maybe it’s good to have a trusted guide if we are going to let our guard down to peer through a murky veil. Today we will be that guide!
We will introduce you to some remarkably inspiring and unexpected heroes, but they are definitely not the kind of things most people would click on without a strong recommendation from someone they trusted. Sadly these amazing hidden gems are almost completely overlooked and uncelebrated in the mass media.

Come on, follow your curiosity, take a little risk! We will bring a smile to your face on all those topics!
