Dog Meets World embodies the words spoken yesterday on the birthday of Nelson Mandela by his wife Graca Machel:

Today is an opportunity for millions of people around the world to look inside themselves and find those beautiful qualities as any human being has and say: “I am able to make a difference to my neighbor, to someone underprivileged, I can extend my goodness to other people”

Sharing a mere photo makes a difference, a simple act of kindness. This 28 year old man, John said this was the first photo he had ever had of himself!
