As a whole, 2020 has been less than kind to our world. But we have made it our mission to follow the sage advice of Mr. Rogers, and look for the helpers in times of crisis. In a year marked by suffering, the bright lights of those who serve and create shone even brighter, and it was our joy to share their stories.
