This is a story of the right person, in the right place, at the right time. Rock Hill real estate agent Casey Lawrence found the injured Pit Bull dumped in the woods after getting lost while showing a property. The dog was discarded and left to die after likely being used as a bait dog by dog fighters. He was surrounded by bones and animal carcasses!
Fortunately, Casey found the dog, now named Rambo, in time! She rushed Rambo to Baxter Veterinary Clinic. Rambo was covered with bite marks and lacerations and was severely injured, and his leg wounds infected with gangrene.
Instead of expecting expensive wedding gifts like many brides, Leigh Clark asked friends and family to spread a little love around the local community. And the results were incredible.
Leigh told the Huffington Post: “The world had given us something we both spent a lifetime looking for — true love. The best thing we could do was to spread kindness through our wedding.”
Friends and family loved the idea. Bridesmaid Emily Schairer (and daughter Chloe) donated pet supplies to a local animal shelter.
Australian Man With Rare Blood Type Saves Over 2 Million Babies By Donating More Than 1,000 Times In 60 Years
They say that when you give of yourself, a part of you will live on in the person you have helped.
That is quite literally the case for James Harrison, a 78-year-old from Australia’s central coast, who has saved 2 million Australian babies by donating his blood plasma.
In 1951, at 14 years old, Harrison had a chest operation during which one of his lungs was removed. After the surgery, his father told him that while on the operating table, Harrison had received 13 liters of blood from a total stranger, saving his life. He vowed to become a blood donor himself when he came of age.
Aged 18, Harrison began donating blood every few weeks and over the course of 60 years he has donated more than 1,000 times. But that’s not all.
A couple in Wilmington, North Carolina, noticed scarves and hats placed around various poles, light posts, and fire hydrants. Upon closer inspection, they were blown away by the kindness of strangers.
The notes read:
“AM NOT LOST! If you need this to stay warm, then please take it. It is yours. Be warm, and do something to help someone else today if you can.”
For the past 10 years, a blind man named Jia Haixia and his friend who is a double amputee, named Jia Wenqi, have been replanting trees in Yeli Village, northeastern China to try and revive the once baron landscape.
Haixia was born blind in on eye and lost sight in the other due to a work related accident. Wenqi also lost both of his arms in an accident at just 3-years-old. The two of them leased 8 acres of land from the government and started planting trees to try and protect their village from flooding.

When this dying dog rescued from the streets of India was originally found he looked like a lost cause, as well as the saddest creature you’ve ever seen. The organization Animal Aid Unlimited came to the dog’s rescue just two-months ago in hopes of saving his life and making it worth living again.
When he was first found on the side of the road, the poor pup was starving, dehydrated, suffering from mange and had not experienced any human contact in a long time. A spokesperson for Animal Aid Unlimited said, “He was so exhausted and inward.”
As soon as the dog arrived at the rescue facility they hooked him up to an IV and began treating his many infections. It took 10 days for the dog’s skin to heal, at which point the real transformation began to take place.
The results of his transformation are unbelievable. To think this is the same dying dog rescued from the streets only two months before is not only shocking but also inspirational.
A community filled with Black Lives Matter activists and police officers gathered together at McAdams Park in Wichita, Kansas, to have productive one-on-one discussions over burgers, hot dogs and barbeque.
The “First Steps Cookout” was suggested by Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay. It was very well received by the community and organizers, who cancelled another scheduled protest for the cookout.
About 400 people RSVP’d, but nearly 1,000 people attended the event.
“Especially after what happened in Baton Rouge, just makes it all the more painful,” said Margaret, one of the residents that attended the cookout. “But I just feel very proud of my city that there’s so many people here. It’s wonderful.”
Photos from the successful event were posted on the Wichita Police Department’s official Facebook page
In an act of true sportsmanship, U.S. runner Abbey D’Agostino helped New Zealand’s Nikki Hamblin to her feet during a women’s 5,000 meter preliminary heat Wednesday, after Hamblin tripped and took D’Agostino down with her.
During the race, it appeared that D’Agostino accidentally clipped Hamblin from behind, causing her to trip and both runners to go down together. The injured Hamblin lay curled in a ball until D’Agostino picked her back up, urging her to finish the race.
A pair of Italian police officers have been praised after helping out an elderly couple in their time of need. Officers in Rome headed to the home of Michele, 94, and Jole, 89, after neighbours had reported hearing cries of distress in the home. After arriving at the scene, the cops discovered the pair in tears. However, they had not been burgled or attacked, they were simply in despair at the state of the world.
The couple, who have been together for 70 years, told officers that they rarely get visitors. The police also noticed that there was little food in the house, and the pair looked like they hadn’t eaten properly in days. So, as they waited for paramedics to come over to check the couple, the cops decided to cook a slap up meal of spaghetti, butter and parmesan for the hungry pair.
Rome’s state police wrote on Facebook:
“Jole and Michele are not victims of scams and no thief entered the house – there is no one to save. This time, for the boys, here is a more daunting task – two lonely souls who need reassuring.”
What a lovely gesture!
