Here’s today’s Friday dose of good news. As always, it was hard to choose just a handful of articles. There are lots of good things happening in the world, so pay attention!
Steve became homeless in 2001 after losing his job. Not long ago, he got a job offer in another state. Steve had been helping out stray dogs he found, and he wasn’t going to leave any of them behind, so he packed up all 11 in a cart and rode his bicycle, with the dogs, across states to his new job. A woman spotted him and decided to help him out. This is the stuff I love.
A young woman saw an older woman eating alone and asked if they could have lunch together. It turns out that the older woman had just suffered some losses, and was grateful for her new friend. I love to see people making small differences in the lives of others.
Kids can be amazing. This 6-year-old’s parents both died, and he got tired of being sad. So he decided to give small toys away to anyone he encountered who wasn’t smiling. What a sweet story!
A doctor in Boston started DoctorBeDancing. Basically, this doctor goes out on the street in his scrubs and white jacket and dances, asking for donations for charity. He says that he likes the idea that he can help and inspire people, and show that one person can make a difference. Bravo!
After a photo of a child studying in the dark outside of McDonald’s in the Philippines went viral, McDonald’s stepped up with scholarships for the kiddo, and said that they’re going to do what they can to help out his school. While it’s great that McDonald’s is helping, the real story here is that this child wasn’t going to let anything stop him from getting an education.
Last but not least, here’s a video of a dog rolling around in a ball pit. Because nothing says Friday like rolling around with a wagging tail!
Happy Friday! And may you have as much fun as a dog in a ball pit this weekend.
