An Ill ‘Star Trek’ Fan Wanted to Meet Patrick Stewart, and He Made It So
Dawn’s mother, Kristy Garrigus, also said she had seen some positive changes in Dawn’s condition since meeting Stewart. “She does not feel as isolated and to be blunt, it was the happiest we had seen her in quite some time…Her brief visit with Sir Patrick has alleviated that feeling which we cannot begin to express gratitude for,” she said to Mashable.

okay so today I was at the mall and this girl walking in front of me and tripped and fell and instead of helping her up like a normal person would- I decided to make her feel less embarrassed and fall down too

but I guess another guy had the same idea because we fell at the same time

and then another person fell

and another

and suddenly I was lying in the middle of an impromptu fainting mob and a lot of people were shouting

and the girl who’d originally fallen looked so fucking happy

How about some love for a good police officer?

Officer Gaetano Acerra

Responded to a call where a 13 year old boy didnt want to live in his home anymore. He found out that the family couldnt afford a bed or much else for the teen.

So he bought him one. A big queen sized one.

He also bought him a Tv and someone donated a Wii, so now they play whenever Officer Gaetano Acerra has a chance

He also plans to get him a dresser, mirror, and a hamper. Among other things he needs but cannot afford.

People. They’re not ALWAYS a bunch of bastards.

The corruption needs to go.
This guy can stay.

Most people give the homeless change or leftovers, Mark Bustos is cutting their hair

For the past few months, New York City hairstylist Mark Bustos — who normally spends his days working at an upscale salon — has been volunteering on his days off to offer haircuts to homeless people he sees on the street. With a simple phrase, “I want to do something nice for you today,” he has been helping people get a fresh, uplifting makeover.

For people who have been trapped in a cycle of poverty, unemployment and homelessness, the makeover can also serve a useful function: looking presentable for a job.

Help for Jed Woomer's Cancer Treatment

xoxomandierosexoxo:

Hello my lovely followers!! I am sharing this website everywhere I can in order to spread the word and get as much support as I can. 

Two weeks ago, my little brother was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma which is a bone cancer. Cancer is exhausting both physically, mentally, and even financially. He is 18 and in November, his health care runs out which means that 6 months of his chemotherapy, we will have to pay for.

Now I know that I am not Tumblr famous at all (I think I might have 100 followers) but PLEASE! Even if it is $20, $10, or just $5 please consider helping out my little brother, Jed.

This may be the happiest I’ve ever been to write a post. Last year, as many of you probably remember, we held a crowdfunding campaign to help a family with adoption fees. The Watkins family had already adopted an eight year old daughter from Ethiopia. They were so happy with their new family, they decided to adopt a ten year old boy named Rabuma, who they had discovered in an orphanage. They knew that Rabuma was destined to be their new son, but were heartbroken because they didn’t have the money to bring him home yet. 4,000 of you donated to help make this family a reality. Over the past year, the Watkins have been sending me periodic updates, but I didn’t want to share them because I didn’t want to jeopardize the process. But everything just finalized. By a beautiful coincidence, the Watkins happened to pick up Rabuma while I was in Africa. So between destinations, I took a two hour detour to Ethiopia to photograph the occasion. It was such an honor for me to be present at the birth of this new family. The love that had already developed between them just filled the room.

"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion." - Dalai Lama
You don’t need a special day to be kind. Every single day is an opportunity to make the world a better place.
A single act of kindness may seem small, but you never know just how far it will go. Kindness is hard to give away because it always comes back to you. 
Now get out there and do some good and have an amazing week!
