From TEDx Cape May, 2013.
From the TEDxTalks YouTube channel:
Dave Girgenti has a very unique job — he is a wishmaster. He connects people in need with everyday heroes who can help through his website, Wish Upon a Hero. Perfect strangers helping others, hundreds of times a day. Why do they do it? Do people truly like helping others? Is there an emotional connection for the hero? Or are they motivated by guilt, perhaps? Have YOU ever helped a complete stranger? Dave will analyze news and entertainment media coverage of ‘good deeds’ that often forms public perception. He will also cite his own first-hand experiences of wishes that have been granted, and will explore the questions above. Dave will challenge the audience to ask themselves if they, too, have this capacity to do ‘good’ and be someone’s hero.
