As we approach the holidays, most of us start thinking about giving—what we’ll buy for our loved ones, what we want in return. But that’s not the case for the Fairfield County model citizens profiled in these pages. They give all year long. They give time, money, talent and pieces of their heart. They give to their towns and they give to strangers oceans away. They want something in return but it’s nothing you can buy in a store. They want the feeling of swelling pride when they see a child in Kenya sit in the schoolhouse they built. They want to cheer when their basketball program turns an inner-city teen into a star, both on the court and off. They want to see a girl who has nothing smile like she has everything, even if for just one strut down a runway. They want to light a fire of philanthropy and watch it spread across the world. Congratulations to our honorees. We are proud to call you our neighbors.
