One Saturday Morning by Tessa Hadley in The New Yorker

A Modern Girls Guide To Childbirth by Elizabeth Evitts Dickenson in PANK

Leigh White is a FB friend who is doing a simple and powerful act. She took a town a corner where a young, mentally ill homeless man was beaten to death by cops and turned it into a station for supplies for homeless people.

Another single act by a woman who cares, Traffic Stop from the blog Meg In Progress, on the day she helped children sold into sexual slavery.
