For the second year in a row Hunter Gandee took off on a long walk with some extra cargo to raise awareness for cerebral palsy. Like last year, Gandee made the trek with his brother on his back, completing the 57-mile journey across parts of Southeast Michigan on Sunday.
Gandee, 15, carried his brother, Braden, 8, all 57 miles over three days from Braden's elementary school in Lambertville, Michigan, to the University of Michigan's Pediatric Rehabilitation Center in Ann Arbor. Gandee's brother suffers from cerebral palsy.
"I wanted to show people the struggles that Braden has to go through daily," Gandee explained. "I wanted to go out and show people we can make the world a better place for people with cerebral palsy." Gandee has called his little brother an inspiration to him, adding, "He is always there for me." more >>
These two kids really set a good example on how great it is to pay it forward. The target for their goodwill is fast food workers due to all the news that has been put out lately about minimum wage. You have to see the response they get, and how the people respond afterwards … WOW!
Imagine working the register at a Wendy's and a little boy orders something he does not have the money for, what would your response be? How would you react? Depending on your financial situation, you may want to give him the money he needs to purchase the item. The two examples they show will touch your heart. One of these people doesn't help, and the reason is not given, but he doesn't seem so nice. As for the two that do, they receive $100 in return for their act of kindness. Which puts them in complete shock! An act of kindness that will bring you to tears.

LaVern Vivio, a 52-year-old Christian radio personality and mother of four from Springfield, Tennessee, revealed recently that she once struggled with gender identity issues as a teenager and expressed sympathy for Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner.
"I am a 52-year-old woman and mother of four. A wife for almost 26 years but I wished I had been born a boy," Vivio began in a blog post last Thursday.
"Probably until I was well into junior high and maybe even high school I was fairly convinced God had simply mixed me up with John Mark, the name my parents had selected if I had been born male," she continued. more >>
HBO host and outspoken atheist Bill Maher has responded to what he says are conservative politicians "whining" about Christianity being under attack in America, and said that Christians are not being persecuted. He also took a shot at the Duggar family from the "19 Kids and Counting" reality TV show and the recent molestation scandal, by calling them "the biggest freaks in the world."
He said on Friday on "Real Time with Bill Maher" that "conservatives who constantly whine that Christianity is under attack from liberals have to explain why there are over 300,000 churches in the U.S., but only 400 Whole Foods."
Maher added: "Clearly, your side is winning." more >>
