I Wish 9-Year-Old Rachel Beckwith Had Been Alive To See Her World-Changing Wish Come True

The power of human compassion can sometimes be a strange thing. It took the death of Rachel Beckwith, a 9-year-old from Washington, to inspire people to donate to her charity on mycharity.com. Her last wish was that people in developing countries be provided with clean water. When this wish was featured on the news, people raised $1.2 million toward Rachel's goal.
