In teacher Kelly Guilfoil's English class at Lake Stevens High School in Washington, literature isn't just an academic quest – it is a passionate quest to meet diverse characters from faraway lands. But after a recent "Skype in the classroom" session with TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie about the power of social entrepreneurship and philanthropy, a new conversation emerged: The class decided to examine the worldviews of the central characters they had been studying this school year and identify what each protagonist was (or wasn't) thinking about his/her social responsibility. We were so inspired by the way the class brought these characters' moral consciences to life that we created this image in their honor.
