    A pair of unnamed Dutch police officers responded to a call in Eindhoven when a hypoglycemic mother fell ill and had to be rushed to the emergency room.

    The mother of five young children was suffering from low blood sugar and had to leave the children unattended while she went to to the hospital for treatment, reports the Good News Network.

    The police officers were left in charge of the children, virtually becoming the world’s most trustworthy babysitters for a moment in time. 

    The cops kept the kids entertained and made them fried egg sandwiches with fresh fruit when they got peckish. 

    The cherry on top of it all was the fact that they pair left the house cleaner than they found it. They reportedly washed a sink full of dishes all the while smiling on the job for a selfie they posted to the squad’s Facebook page.

    With the instincts of a police officer and the tenderness of a nanny, these two could make a killing if they decide to open up a babysitting service.

  • A woman in New York City gave her shoes to a barefoot homeless woman on the subway.A woman in New York City gave her shoes to a barefoot homeless woman on the subway.

    A small act of kindness is all it took for one New York woman to instantly become an inspiration to others.

    Kay Brown was on her way home from work when she saw a homeless woman riding in her bare feet. 

    The 26-year-old didn’t hesitate to help out the woman in need and graciously gave up her own shoes, she writes on her Facebook page. 

    “I asked her what her shoe size was and she said, ‘Size 7,’ which is my size, so I said, 'Please take my shoes,’” Brown told TODAY.com.

    “She started crying immediately, saying: 'Are you sure?’ I had to,” she said. 

    Shortly after giving away her shoes, a gentlemen on the subway noticed the kind gesture and gave Brown a pair of Nike socks to wear over her thin ones. 

    She ended up walking six blocks home in those socks. 

    “It’s the middle of November and she has no where to go, so the least I could do is give her a pair of shoes,” she wrote on Facebook.

    Brown shared a picture of the homeless woman putting on her boots and crying, which has since gone viral.

    In the service industry, there’s an expression that bosses preach like gospel: “The customer is always right.” 

    But in one recent incident involving an Italian restaurant in Alaska, the owner decided to throw that expression out the window and defend his autistic employee when one customer did something very, very wrong.

    It all started on the evening of Nov. 7, when a customer of Little Italy Restaurante in Anchorage, Alaska, called to complain about one of the delivery drivers. According to owner P.J. Gialopsos, the customer was enraged, swearing and accusing the driver of being a drug user simply for bringing him the wrong container of food, reports the Alaska Dispatch News.

    Gialopsos’s daughter, Emily, took the call, and says she explained to the customer that the driver was autistic and had a speech impediment, but was not on drugs. Though other customers have called to complain about the driver, Gialopsos says that once they learn he is disabled, they understand.

  • Special Ed teacher’s unique approach to all of his students is going viral

    "We are all different but we are all in this together."


    Florida, the state you can rely on year round for Sunny D and terrible news, has flipped the script thanks to one teacher who is being praised for his dreamy surfer dude locks, but also how attentive and loving he is with his elementary aged class of special needs students.

    Chris Ulmer is a special education instructor in Florida who begins each day by spending one-on-one time with his students, telling them what makes them special and why he feels lucky to be their teacher. A video of the exchange has been posted to his Facebook page, Special Books by Special Kids.

    In the video, Ulmer speaks to each student telling them what they are good at, what he can see they have been working hard at, and why he loves having them in his class.

    The video has captions along the bottom, explaining Ulmer’s reasoning behind this practice. 


    This morning, Ulmer posted a long statement on the Special Books by Special Kids Facebook page urging people to share the video and make it viral.

    In a Facebook clip that has gone viral this week, a young student gave a brand new pair of Nike LeBron sneakers to a his friend, who was apparently getting bullied for his shoes.

    “OK that was a grown up move,” wrote Miguel Marquize Howell in the caption to the video. “Kid was getting bullied and ragged on about his shoes … so another student bought LeBron’s the next day.”

    In the video, the young boy is seen walking into the classroom with an orange Nike box hidden behind his back.

    As he pulls it out and reveals a new pair of shoes to his fellow classmate, the young boy’s reaction is full of joy.

    “Here you go,” he said in the video. “I gave you a pair of shoes. Since you felt bad yesterday about how everyone was making fun of your shoes, there you go.”

    The two share a big hug before the video ends.

  • Elizabeth Laird figures she has hugged about half a million departing and returning soldiers in her 12 years as the ‘hug lady.’

    The 83-year-old spent over a decade sitting at the airport in Fort Hood, Texas, greeting and sending off soldiers since the start of the Iraq war in 2003, reports USA Today.

    Today, Laird is in the hospital, fighting breast cancer that has spread to her lungs. Since she is unable to fulfill her role as the ‘hug lady,’ the soldiers are coming to her.

    “The hug lady was very inspirational in my first deployment to Afghanistan. She touched my heart,” retired Army Capt. Caren Adkins told USA Today. “[She] had an impact on so many lives.”

    Laird was admitted to the hospital earlier this month. Her son, Richard Dewees set up a  Go Fund Me page shortly thereafter in hopes of raising $10,000 for her medical bills, the Huffington Post reports. 

    As of Wednesday, the page had raised nearly $83,000.

    Most couples use their wedding as a way to show the world how much they love each other, but one Toronto bride and groom decided to use their special day to show how much they care about humanity.

    Samantha Jackson and Farzin Yousefian had planned a traditional wedding. They had a venue booked, a caterer ready and their family and friends were set to celebrate with them. But the couple realized the cost of their wedding could be put to a better use, by redirecting funds to a cause close to the couple's hearts, the Ryerson University Lifeline Syria Challenge.

    “We realized as we planned for our wedding that the average cost of a wedding is almost the same amount as the average cost of sponsoring a family of four,” says Jackson, a PhD student studying refugee health care policy who has been involved with the Ryerson University Lifeline Syria Challenge since July. “Seeing how far donations go and seeing how much the money fundraised really means to people who are going through the program

  • How do you explain a tragedy to a child? This dad might have the right idea.

    Angel Le and his son, Brandon, were visiting the memorial site outside the Bataclan Theatre in Paris when a reporter asked the little boy if he understood what took place. 

    The result is a touching video posted on Facebook showing a precious conversation between a father and his son following the tragedy. 

    Standing alongside his kneeling father, Brandon tells the reporter from Le Petit Journal, that “bad guys are not very nice.” 

    The little boy then tells the reporter about his concern of being really careful and “changing houses.”

    His dad reassures his son that there is no need to move out.

    “France is our home,” he said in the video.

    “But there’s bad guys daddy,” the little boy replies.

    His father is quick to comfort his son and tells him “they might have guns, but we have flowers.”

    Brandon is not convinced and is quick to question his dad, “but flowers don’t do anything…”

    Three Montreal roommates are hammering home the message of peace, tolerance and solidarity in the wake of the Paris attacks. It’s a message that’s quickly making its way around the world.

    The three men stood in a subway station for an hour on Monday, holding hands. They each wore white shirts describing where they’re from: Matt from New York, Ammar from Egypt, and Thomas from Paris.  

    They also stood in front of signs that explained their relationships: roommates, best friends, and brothers.

    A little further up, another sign read: They cannot separate us.

    Matt Dejar told Buzzfeed Canada the reaction from commuters was nothing but positive.

    “People were crying and hugging us. We were totally overwhelmed,” he said. “There was not a single bad thing said. Everybody was so supportive.”
