TODAY wants to share stories of people making a big impact via small acts of generosity. 

We want to thank the hundreds of viewers who nominated friends and family members who better their community. 

Congratulations to Dale Ortmann, our Small Acts, Big Impact winner who earned a trip to New York City and was surprised with a $50,000 check, courtesy of our sponsor Wells Fargo.  Dale was nominated for refurbishing fishing equipment and teaching kids in his neighborhood how to use it.

“I like to see 'em catch somethin', then bring it in, you know?” he told TODAY. “See the excitement on their face, catchin' their first fish.”
