"When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another." -- Helen Keller
What began as a way to help a friend's family, ended up helping his own. Long ago our next honoree went to a group of his friends and encouraged them to help with the medical treatments for another friend whose child was terminally ill. And then, his own child was born with medical issues. Friends gathered to help him and he went on to formalize The Robin Hoods of Virginia Beach - now called The Noblemen -- an organization dedicated to helping children's charities. In addition to all of the work The Noblemen do with 35 local charities, he has also coordinated the reconstruction of local burned down houses - even restocking the homes as well. He gave up his own job to dedicate himself to the mission - spending 10-12 hours a day looking for ways to help others. Over the last 10 years, The Nobelmen have been involved in everything from bone marrow drives to helping purchase a prosthetic leg for a young girl in need. Because of this honoree's unselfish work, hundreds of children in local Title One schools have their own dictionaries, and many children were able to enjoy the final christmases of their lives. His noble organization, noble deeds, and noble intent are a few of the reasons why we happy honor Al Midgett as one of WAVY-TV's 10 Who Care.
