These Altruistic Siblings Want To Change The World By Protecting Animals

When a person finds their passion, they should follow it with their whole heart. And no one is "too young" to begin.
Carter and Olivia Ries, brother and sister, are 14 and 12 years old respectively. Despite the fact that neither is old enough to drive a car yet, the siblings have already started their own company based on a shared passion of theirs: saving animals and natural environments through increased recycling and other methods.

The Ries' company is a non-profit called OMG: One More Generation. OMG focuses on the preservation of endangered species across the world, and it has brought Carter and Olivia to multiple countries and continents to spread their message via different curricula that the siblings have created. Through the lessons they offer, Carter and Olivia educate both young students and adults about the plight of species like cheetahs, which could go extinct if they are not consciously protected by humans.

"My favorite trip with One More Generation is out of the country in South Africa, and we're teaching kids about how rhinos are being killed for their horns, but their horns don't even have medicinal value," says Carter of OMG's global efforts. As a result of that lesson, Carter says, "When people learned about this, they were writing letters to the President, and we delivered more than 10,000 letters to the Minister of Environmental Affairs."

Olivia wants to tell other kids that "anyone can make a difference," and that no one should let their age restrict them from dreaming big and pursuing their passions. "They don't need to start when they're older," she continues. "They can start at any age they want to."

You can learn more about OMG and their environmental lessons on their, website or by following them on Facebook and Twitter.

Blind Waiter Serves Up Diner Classics and Life Lessons

** As we wind down to the final days of this difficult year, OGTV is tipping our hat to all of the essential workers on the front lines with this uplifting story about a New Jersey man who has found a way to do this difficult job for years, even without his eyesight! **

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake. What is unique about this meal is the waiter who delivers it to your table – his name is John Diakakis, and he is blind.
