"Make it Matter" is a new initiative of the Reader’s Digest Foundation. The foundation will give away $1 million to nonprofit organizations based on inspiring stories submitted by the public. Every month for 10 months, Reader’s Digest will choose one individual whose story of giving back serves as an inspiration to others. For each story, the Reader’s Digest Foundation will donate $100,000 to a nonprofit organization that is associated either with the story or the cause. These individuals and their stories of giving back will appear every month in the new "Make it Matter" column in Reader’s Digest and on rd.com, beginning with the April issue.
