Your Cupcakes Are Stale

This is a delightful video about a lady who owns a cupcake store.  She is a hardworking mother of 4. She has had a pretty rough life.  A couple of years ago she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She has a son that has a dibiliterating disease and the medical  bills are climbing.  Jackie O has come along to help her out.  She is going to pretend to be a disgruntled customers saying that the cupcakes she was sold are stale.  When she returns the cupcakes she finds that she has received $10,000.  What a surprise for such a deserving mother.  She is understandably quite moved and can’t believe that someone would do this for her.  Isn’t it amazing when people are able to help out other people in need.  Not everyone can hand out $10,000 but you can do some things to make life easier for those around you that need help.  Please do what you can for others around you.  Take a moment to watch for needs.  Share when you do find a need with others who can also help.  We live in community to help eachother.  Be there for others.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

Found Money Returned to Homeless Man

A police officer was patroling in Lauderdale by the Sea and discovered a couple plastic bags left under a park bench.  He took the bags to the station and turned them over to Police Detective Danny Mursell. There was over $5,000 dollars in cash in the bag with no identifying notes inside.  Soon another similar bag was turned over with another $4,000 inside. They found a clue.  A receipt was in side for a clothing store in the Coral Ridge Mall.  They were able to obtain video footage of the man who bought the clothes.  They distributed the picture to all the police in the area and shortly were able to locate the man.  They discovered that this homeless man had inherited a large sum of money from a relative and had accidentaly left it at the bench.  It tooks some fine detective work to reunited this man and his money.  He could not believe that there was still good people in the world who would turn over the money.  Now the homeless man is going to meet some family and try to get his life back in order.  We know ther are good people out there and we do wish this man the best luck.

What Does the Homeless Man Do With the Money

This is a guy who likes to do You Tube videos.  Today his video was an experiment on what would happen if you gave $00 to a homeless man on the street asking for money. He follows the guy and records what he would do with the money.  He  assumes the worst but is quite surprised to see what happens.  He sees the guy go into a liquor store/market.  He comes out with a large bag.  He then walks to a nearby park and digs into his bag and pulls out food for the people in the park.  After watching for a while Josh (the blogger) goes up to Thomas (the homeless man) and tells him what he was doing.  He then apologizes to Thomas for assuming that he would do something bad with the money. Being so moved he gives Thomas another $100 as Thomas tells him his story of how he became homeless.  He says most of the time it is a case of bad luck and bad timing that makes people homeless.  Thanks to Patricia M for sharing this story with us.  If you would like to help Thomas out of his situation you can donate to  https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-thomas-to-get-a-fresh-start and help him get a fresh start.  So far they have raised over $122,000. It will only continue until January 21.

Secret Santa in Kansas City

There is a man in Kansas City that uses this time of year for random acts of kindness.  Every year this man gives away away about $100,000 anonymously to needy people.  This year Secret Santa is getting the help of the Kansas City Police department to distribute his money to needy people.  The police went out on patrol and they would stop people who appeared to need some financial help this season.  Most people were really concerned when they were stopped until the officer explained why he stopped them.  Most people were so surprised that they burst into tears.  One lady even said that she was not going to be able to get her kids anything for Christmas until now.  Now this Secret Santa said he not only wanted to give money to people but also wanted the officers to be able to give it away.  There has been some bad police stories this year that he wanted the police to also get the joy of giving this money out.  They got the chance to be the bearer of good news for a change.  They got a chance to help homeless and the law abiders.  There were hugs and celebrations.  What a great way for the police to help Secret Santa to make the holidays better for people in need.  Great job Kansas City.

Doing the Right Thing – HeTurns in Money

Here is a story about an honest man who does the right thing.  Joe Cornell is a hard working man who lives in Fresno, CA. Joe is currently working through the Salvation Army rehabilitation program.  While working one day he thought he saw something unusual.  When he went to investigate he found a bag full of money and checks.  He remembered seeing a Brinks truck pull away some time before.  Even though he is a man of few means and could really use the money, he didn’t give it a second thought.  ”I thought what kind of man do I want my grandkids to think I am”.   So he called his boss and told him that he found some money.  The police interviewed him and told him he was one in a million.  He said he was trying to get his life together and he wanted his family to be proud of him.  I researched this story and found out that Brinks did reward this man (even though he didn’t expect it) with $5000 and and also donated another $5000 to the Salvation Army program.  Way to go Brinks for giving him the recognition he deserved.  Joe, you are our hero by doing the right thing!!
