@goodnews_movement: Chauncy (left) who was starving, approached a stranger (right) and asked if he could carry his groceries to his car in exchange for a pack of donuts. The kind stranger, Matt White, was moved by the request. ”This kid looked like he had been turned down 100 times. He looked ashamed, hungry and broken. In my heart I screamed a loud “yes!”, but to him I just chuckled and said, “yeah dude, we’ll get you some donuts.” Matt took it upon himself to do more than what was asked of him. Matt soon found out that Chauncy had no phone, only a bus pass, and a hungry mother waiting at home. Shocked by Chauncy’s situation, he took him back into the store itself and bought toiletries, cereal and other staples for him and his mother, Barbara. The @krogerco grocery store learned of his story and filled up his cart. “I gave him a ride home so that he didn’t have to take the bus and when we got to his house I was truly humbled. He wasn’t kidding. He and his mom had nothing. They didn’t even have beds or furniture. They were sleeping on pads made out of sleeping bags, they had two lamps and nothing in their fridge.” Matt set up a Go Fund me that’s raised over $340,000! ❤️🌟🙏

After 30 years of delivering mail to this Atlanta neighborhood, beloved mailman Mr. Floyd was surprised, on his last shift, with this block party of 300+ people, decorated mailboxes (swipe right) and gifts. Happy retirement! The neighborhood and online donors pitched in to reach gofundme goal to send him on a trip to Hawaii!

Once a year for at least a decade at the M.M. Ewing Continuing Care Center in Canandaigua, NY, has received an unprompted visit from this Mallard (who they think is the same one that has visited years past) and her ducklings. 🌟

“Tupac Mosley, 17, became class valedictorian and earned $3 million dollars in college scholarships, all while his family was homeless. When Mosley was a student at Raleigh Egypt High School in Memphis Tenn., he submitted applications for 50 universities, earning admittance into 44 with generous aid, including the prestigious Gates Scholarship from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Upholding his A-average in high school and graduating with a 4.3 GPA (attributed to extra points from his advanced classes) was demanding, especially when Mosley’s father died from organ failure in April 2017. “My dad tried to tough it out for a long time and he always put his children first,” Mosley tells Yahoo Lifestyle.” Via @yahoo

Curtis, 100, and Virginia, 103, first met at the University of Northern Iowa (then Iowa State Teachers College) during World War II. In 1940, they married, began having children, and ran a printing shop together. The shop, a truly family-owned business, was even connected to their home in Waterloo, Iowa. The couple, according to Cathoir, always shared everything — and that included the Hershey's chocolate bars they enjoyed almost every day. In fact, they say, the secret to their marriage is a piece of Hershey’s chocolate a day 🍫❤️ (via @todayshow ).

He grew up in beautiful Puerto Rico-his parents would play opera music at home and work hard to give him the best opportunities. His mom a nurse and school teacher; his dad an accountant who would slip a dollar bill through the school fence when stopping by his school to watch him play. He would hum in class and at home, never knowing that someday that little boy with a melody in his head would perform at Carnegie Hall. Congrats to my husband @figueroagram ! Listen to your hum. 😊🌟
