If you have ever believed that anyone is born an American and can aspire to anything, take a moment to consider the work of Hannah Korpi, the youngest PhD holder in the country, who has donated her earnings so she can help children living in poverty in South America.

Another individual: Rachel Nankervis, who has used a low-cost process that makes handmade devices to fit particular American football helmets.

Or young Christopher Pfaff, whose high-risk muscular dystrophy has left him unable to speak. But despite his limited communication skills, he wrote letters to the most powerful people in the world, and through his illness his sense of purpose deepened.

Carolyn M. Jack, who volunteers at nursing homes by delivering meals, showers and make-up to residents who might otherwise go without.

We want to hear from you too. Over the next few days, we will be selecting one of your top 10 CNN Hero stories. As part of National Volunteer Week, we’re looking for selfless activists and leaders who put down the phone and commit themselves to serving others.

We will publish the heroes named in our top 10 on CNN.com and Facebook. For each of our 10 CNN Hero stories, a different charity or organization will receive $1,000.
