A shoe that grows
Sometimes a simple invention can change millions of lives. That?s the goal of The Shoe That Grows, a sandal that can adjust its size, allowing children in impoverished nations to grow up without having to go barefoot. The shoes, which come in catch-all Small and Large sizes, can grow 5 sizes and last at least 5 years. www.theshoethatgrows.org

Restaurant provides community fridge
Minu Pauline, owner of the Pappadavada restaurant, in Kochi, southern India, was moved to combat both food waste and hunger after seeing people scavanging waste food from bins, so she put a fridge outside her restaurant. The fridge ? nicknamed nanma maram, meaning ?tree of goodness? ? began as a place people in need could pick up excess food from the restaurant. It's now become a community hub, with people from across town donating to it and the idea is being implemented around the world.
