The Extra Mile

— The Extra Mile —

Wallace Campbell, together with Lincoln Clark and Arthur Ringland, founded Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere (CARE) in 1945 to rush lifesaving assistance to the survivors of World War II in Europe and Asia. Over 100 million relief packages were delivered, embedding the phrase "care package" into the American lexicon as a term synonymous with helping people in need. Campbell's 40-year association with CARE helped it evolve toward a model of self-sufficient programs that create lasting solutions to the problems of poverty.
"Every human being is important and all human beings owe something to their fellow inhabitants of this planet."
