Editing a Good News section is often a lesson in the unbeatable buoyancy of the human spirit. Even in the midst of overwhelming negativity, people like retired schoolteacher Margo McAuliffe are affecting incredible change in the world.

Each day, The Huffington Post's 'Greatest Person Of The Day' editorial series profiles one person who has used creativity, passion and unlimited generosity to make a difference.

So, as we launch a section dedicated to positive and inspiring news, we're paying tribute to the greatest of the good -- we're revisiting the 10 most uplifting stories in our 'Greatest Person' series. These are men and women who are leading by example -- whether it's speaking out against bullying or cooking pasta for California's poorest children.

From Evan Moss, the 7-year-old who raised $42,000 for seizure dogs and appeared on the Today Show to Bun Lai who turned a popular Connecticut restaurant into a leader in the sustainable seafood movement, these superstars have taken ordinary circumstances and turned them into extraordinary good.

Take a look.

Bruno Serato is known for more than just serving celebrities at his Anaheim, Calif. restaurant, Anaheim White House. Instead, he's made a name for himself feeding "motel children" free pasta seven days a week.

On average, Serato and his restaurant feed about 150 children, and have given away 245,000 meals to date.

"A customer once asked me, 'Bruno, how can you afford to do this?' I said, 'How can I afford to stop?' This is my passion. If I could not do what I do every day, I'd be devastated."

To help Serato feed hungry children, he asks that pasta donations be brought to his restaurant, or visit the nonprofit he began to help raise funds, Caterina's Club.
