Who is Aaron Jackson and why is he trying to cure people in Haiti?

It takes all kinds of people to make the world go around yet some folks really do it to beat of another drum. Such is Aaron Jackson who I just read about in the Broward/Palm Beach New Times.

This young man, from a privileged background, has made it his personal mission to raise enough funds to provide treatment to cure the ravages of intestinal parasites in people in Haiti. He’s single-mindedly, with a few bumps in the road, managed to help the people of  Haiti and around the world without the traditional aid encumbrance of our government.

It’s difficult to capture this guy’s story in a couple of paragraphs here so please check out his story and support his initiatives through his non-profit organization, Planting Peace. He’s amazing. After reading it you can’t help but believe in the power of one person to effect positive change in the world.
