Scott Neeson lived a life people dream about. He flew first class all over the globe, hung out with movie stars, and made blockbuster films. But during a vacation in Cambodia, he took a side trip to the massive garbage dumps around Phnom Penh. That’s where he saw hundreds of children picking through the garbage to make a living off recyclables. A year later, he quit his dream job, moved to Phnom Penh and launched the Cambodia Children’s Fund. It provides education, healthcare, and vocational training to more than 200 children.
