Most people would say that Steven Cobin has taken more than his share of hard knocks. His daughter Geri Lisa was born with a birth defect that has left her severely mentally retarded.

I was deeply moved by "Giving an Assist" by Beverly Beyette (Feb. 2), about Steven Cobin's efforts on behalf of individuals who need wheelchairs worldwide. As competition for government resources gets steeper, people are stepping into the gap to provide for their fellow human beings and, as Cobin put it, put an emphasis less on "making money" and more on "making a difference." As Cobin learned firsthand, one individual who is generous with time or a donation can bring an organization from a listless or even threatened existence into a place where it can thrive and attract others.
