    Smile to/in the world

    Because of the determination and enthusiam of Ku and Ho, the old house has returned to its original splendor. The seemingly foolish passion of these two young men restored one small piece of beauty to the world.

    Why is it "to the world" in the above instead of "in the world?" Thanks.

    Because the thought here is "gave back to the world"
