Who doesn’t love socks? They’re warm, fuzzy and for the most part, inexpensive — unless your phalanges are of the fabulous kind.

About Toan LamToan Lam, the creator of www.GoInspireGo.com is living proof that inspiration and hope trumps the unfortunate situations many of us face today. After nearly 10 years of television industry experience, both in-front and behind-the camera reporting in San Francisco as well as ABC, CBS and NBC affiliates around the country and California Heartland, a statewide, syndicated PBS magazine show, he was laid off from his major market news gig. Toan decided to stop his job search and combine his journalism chops and gift of connecting with people, to help his community. That experience led him to create a website featuring inspirational videos via a YouTube channel. At the end of the videos, there are resource links where viewers can go to help the featured people. His goal: To help everyone discover their power and inspire them to use their power (their resources and talents) to help others. When Toan is not on TV, he is blogging about his website content for the Huffington Post's Living and Impact Sections. Additionally, he is sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience as an adjunct professor, teaching on-camera talent and production classes at the University of San Francisco (his alma mater) and the Academy of Art. Toan is also a member of the Asian American Journalists' Association.

I whole heartedly believe that everyone has the power to make positive change in someone’s life or in your community
What happens after your life has been threatened and in danger and you’ve successfully run to safety?
When was the last time you gave unconditionally – with no strings attached? What about receiving with gratitude for the abundance in your life?
We’ve all gotten to where we are today because someone helped us along the way. My earliest recollection of someone who has made an impact on my life is Mrs.
“I don’t know what I can do to help others,” is a response I often hear when people have been inspired by GoInspireGo stories, but do not
You can’t read this without feeling that effervescent, inspiring, chilling feeling — the community, humanity pulled through to make this gir’s wish come true, thousands of times over.
