A 7-year-old old boy was rescued from the clutches of a suspected kidnapper last Wednesday after being abducted from his home in Alice, Texas, all because a Papa Murphey's pizza shop worker, who normally ignored Amber Alerts on her phone, decided to pay attention this time.
Courtney Best, the pizza shop worker, told KRIS-TV that she was taking a smoke break in front of the pizza shop in the Hamlin Shopping Center in Corpus Christi when she spotted Nicholas Gomez and the suspected kidnapper Channing Galbraith.
"I stepped outside, I was standing by the trash can and I seen a white car pull up and I just happen to take my phone with me, cause we don't look at our phones at work, and I looked down and I saw 'white Dodge Avenger Amber Alert.' And I was like, nah, that's not him," said Best. "The man was walking across the parking lot looking at me ... cause I was the only person out here, with the little boy and the little boy looked scared and I was like no, that's not him." more >>
A church in Georgia has recently collected over five tons of Oreos, which were shipped overseas to members of the United States Armed Forces.
Alpharetta First United Methodist Church collected 5.6 tons of the beloved cookies in an annual charitable endeavor called "Operation Oreo."
It's not easy to come by small acts of kindness. But good deeds of this magnitude are even more rare. This man takes it into his own hands to make these people in the grocery store happy.
The cost of groceries is not cheap. Especially if you have 4-5 people in a household. Sometimes it becomes hard for us to afford to shop the way we want. Food accounts for a huge part of the average American family's budget. That's why this man took it into his own hands to help people for nothing in return. He knows how tough it can be to feed a family on a tight budget, so he goes out of his way to make the process less stressful.

Taylor Swift recently donated $50,000 to a young fan who is battling Leukemia after the girl's family led a viral campaign to get the pop star's attention.
On June 25, Naomi Oakes, an 11-year-old Christian girl from San Tan Valley, Arizona, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and she chose Swift's Billboard chart topping hit "Bad Blood" as her "fight song." The rare form of cancer will require a six-to-nine months hospital stay as part of Naomi's course of treatment, which has devastated the Swift fan because it means she will miss the Grammy award-winning singer's Aug. 18 concert in Phoenix.
Naomi received tickets to Swift's show as a Christmas present and had made plans to attend with her "bestest best friend Piper" before she received the heartbreaking diagnosis at Cardon Children's Hospital in Mesa. more >>
As adults of this generation we know how important it is to have our vision with all the different types of technology. We often use our vision to help us read text messages or see images clearly.

For toddlers, it becomes more difficult to communicate when they have discomfort. But due to some obvious signs, this girl was able to get help. Vision is something many of us tend to take for granted, even though it is something that guides us through life and helps us clearly make decisions. A young person's first pair of glasses is usually followed by complete awe. It hurts because their perception of the world is a lot different than those people who are able to see.
This little girl has her glasses put on and sees the world clearly for the first time, and her reaction is guaranteed to make you smile! more >>
