What this camera caught these children doing will restore your faith in humanity ????????

Technology can be both a blessing and a curse, but in this case we’re definitely glad the act was caught on camera! The outcome is great too.

A man in Aurora, Colorado shared a video that was recorded on his home’s smart doorbell system of three young kids returning a wallet that had $700 cash inside.

“If this doesn’t renew or at least refresh your faith in humanity you need help,” Jamie Carlton wrote in his Facebook video post.

The kids are seen approaching the front door and appear surprised by the automated recording that asks them to leave a message.

“We found your wallet outside of your car and we just thought we would give it back to you,” one of the kids says. “I’m gonna put it over here so no one takes any money.”

Then the kids ride off on their bikes.

“These kids are amazing, we would love to find them to reward them and thank them,” Carlton added in his post. “Their parents should be so proud of them. Any help finding them would be great.”

The Facebook post was later edited, multiple times.

The first read “update: Looks like this may be on 9news at 9:00 PM and 10:00 PM tonight. 7/25/18.”

“Update: The mother of two of the kids has contacted me. Two news stations have also been in contact. I forwarded their information on to the mother so she can contact them if she likes. What a nice lady, such great kids!!!” said the second!

What this restaurant did for dad battling cancer made his son fly out to personally thank them

A tasty meal can be amazing for your mood, and it’s even better when it is delivered straight to your house!

This is why, when a restaurant worker went above and beyond what would be expected, they managed to vastly improve someone’s wellbeing! So much so that the person’s son felt compelled to thank the employee personally.

Rick, who currently lives in Michigan, USA, was devastated after discovering that his 86 year old father all the way in Ontario, Canada, was craving some heartier food.

His father, Dale, had been battling pancreatic cancer for some time, and is living temporarily at an assisted living home. Whilst on a phone call, Dale mentioned to his son that he missed eating his favourite food, especially cheeseburgers and fries! Sadly, due to his health, he was unable to leave the facility, leaving him stuck dreaming of the delicious foods of his younger days.

With hopes that a tasty meal would cheer up his dad, Rick contacted every single burger restaurant in Pickering, Ontario, asking if they would deliver for a local senior citizen. Over a dozen restaurants told Rick they were unable to.

Eventually, the owner of Kips Flamin’ Burgers, Carmen Kolandjian, answered the plea of the desperate son!

Although she hesitated at first as they don’t usually do delivery, and she could name to take the time out of her day to do the delivery, she soon changed her mind once Rick explained the dilemma.

“After I explained the circumstances of my father’s failing health, and concerns of his recent eating habits, she took it upon herself to extend her compassion and heart to help the son of a man whom she never met before. She finished her shift at work and drove the food to the local assisted living home, asking for nothing in return,” Rhoads told The Star newspaper.

She stayed true to her word, Kolandjian hand-delivered a burger, french fries, and a side of gravy to the care home with a note reading:

“Hi Dale, this is from your amazing son, Rick. Enjoy your meal.”

“It just tugged at my heart strings when he told me about his dad,” said Kolandjian. “I always try to do a good deed. I have a soft spot for the elderly.”

This kindness did not go unacknowledged by Rick! He traveled all the way from Michigan to Pickering to visit his father and make a stop by the burger joint to give Kolandjian a personal thank you for their kind gesture.

Talking to The Star, he said “people like that need to be recognized.”

Police offer responds to Lush’s controversial campaign, “Yes, I Lied”, and it’s beautiful.

This is wild.

Last week people begun to see something different in Lush’s window as they walked through their city to work or whilst shopping, rather than the usual smiley faces of Lush employees, they saw the striking face of a police officer with the text ‘paid to lie’.

As the news spread, people also took to Lush’s social media pages to question them. Upon reaching these pages, they saw they had also been updated for the ‘paid to lie’ campaign.

Whilst many jumped to Twitter and Facebook to shout at Lush and express their anger and confusion at the campaign, one police officer approached things in a different way.

The anonymous officer submitted this to UK Cop Humour page, talking about how he is “PAID TO LIE” on the job.

Dear LUSH UK,

I have seen your front window display and the accusation that as a police officer I am “Paid to Lie”. I have given this considerable thought over the last 24 hours. I have looked over my 16-year career, from Constable to Inspector, and I must say that I agree with you wholly and passionately, because I am indeed “Paid to Lie”.

I Lied. I spent 8 hours of a 10-hour shift cradling a young baby in my arms. Her Mother was in Police Custody for stabbing her Father. Social Services were too stretched to attend. I used my own money to buy her milk and nappies. A member of the public remonstrated with me when they saw me buying these supplies, said I was “Wasting Tax Payer’s money doing my shopping when I should have been serving the public”. I rocked that baby to sleep, her tear stained cheek on mine. I whispered to her, I promised her she would be fine. She wasn’t. She is now a teenager; my colleagues deal with her daily. She is not fine. I lied.

I lied. I talked a suicidal male down from the balcony of his own flat. He was on the ‘wrong’ side and said he had nothing to live for. I spent an hour talking to him, convincing him that he had everything to live for. He came down. I saved his life that night. I referred him to the appropriate agencies to support him through his crisis. He engaged with Mental Health Services for a while. He killed himself the following year. He left a suicide note saying he didn’t have anything to live for. I lied.

I lied. I attended my first ‘sudden death’ as a new Police Constable. I was 23 and the male that passed away was 21. I performed CPR whilst waiting for paramedics to attend. Any opportunities to save his life failed and he was pronounced dead. I checked his whole body for any suspicious activity and then I confirmed his death to his parents and his younger siblings. It was the first dead body I had seen since my own Grandad had died. This happened 19 years ago. I can still smell the air freshener in that house. My sergeant asked me if I was okay. I was not okay. I Lied.

I lied. I attended the scene of a report of a domestic violence incident in progress. The neighbours called police, concerned for the safety of a female. I found that female, she had significant injuries. An aggressive male threatened to stab me if I didn’t leave his property. I stayed. I arrested the male. I sustained injuries to my hands and wrist as a result. Colleagues took too long to assist me, they were dealing with their own incidents. The female refused to tell me what had happened. I persuaded her to give evidence and support a prosecution against him. She did. She placed her trust in me. She showed bravery beyond anything I could ever comprehend. He was charged with assault and remanded to court. I wrote the most convincing remand application to the court that I have ever written in my whole career. The court released him the next day. He went back to her and they resumed their relationship, she can’t leave him. The calls to Police continue. I told her she would be safe. I lied.

I Lied. As a Police Constable I was placed on two cell watches within one shift. When prisoners in custody are identified as being at high risk, an officer is assigned to watch over them to make sure they remain safe whilst in Police Custody. Risks are broad but can include medical issues, alcohol intoxication, illegal drug use, through to risks of self-harm and suicide. I was placed on a cell watch of a suicidal male, he had been arrested on suspicion of child sex offences. He tried to hang himself in the Police cell by binding his socks together to make a ligature. I pulled the ligature from his neck preventing his death. My actions were later commented upon because I should have stopped him before he got the opportunity to tie the socks together in the first place. During such duties you never take your eye of the detainee for a second. The same shift I was placed on a second cell watch. A male arrested on suspicion of murder also said he was suicidal. I was sat at the entrance to his cell and he was covered in the provided blanket. He removed the blanket to reveal his penis and started to masturbate. He told me I was pretty, he liked blondes. I had to maintain visual on him, to ensure his welfare, until such time I could raise the attention of a male colleague to take over from me. We all laughed afterwards at my expense. The Sergeant asked me if I was fine. I laughed and said I was and I went home. I lied.

I lied. I went to the report of a sexual assault. A 14 year old child had been raped by her Step Father. I consoled the child whilst my colleagues arrested the Step Father. I asked the child to hide in another room whilst her mother attacked me, scratching my chest and neck with her fingernails, furious because I had taken her boyfriend away from her. She had numerous contagious diseases. The child victim then turned on me, she bit me and I had to restrain her by the arms to prevent her injuring me. Her Mum hated the Police so she did too. I remember working a double shift that night. When I eventually got home to my own 14-year-old daughter, she gave me hug and asked me if I was okay. I said I was I okay. If she saw the marks on my neck she chose not to say. Once she was asleep I crept into her room, watched her sleep and I cried. I cried for that abused child. I cried that I was so blessed. I cried that my own child worried about me and I cried for the burden I placed upon her. I wasn’t okay. I lied.

You see Lush, I do lie, I lie to those I try to help, to my own colleagues and to my friends and family. I am not alone and I am sure that my colleagues reading this would agree they have done the same.

Whilst I can see there may have been good sentiment behind your latest campaign, it has been appallingly executed. Believe me nobody wants to see a corrupt practise or a corrupt officer held to account more than a decent hard-working officer. Unfortunately, your abhorrent window display depicts something far more sinister. I was shocked to see that you removed all un-supporting 1* posts from your Facebook page yet you did not remove those supporting posts that gave you 5* and used the slogan ACAB. This is more insulting than the campaign itself.”

Lush has since issued a statement where they state the campaign is NOT intended to be “anti-state” or “anti-police”, and reiterated that it “fully supports” the police in “having proper police numbers, correctly funded to fight crime, violence and to be there to serve the public at our times of need”.

This woman receives her birthday wish for her 103rd birthday!

A resident at Ridgeview Gardens Assisted Living in St. George, Utah celebrated her 103rd birthday with a surprise barbecue in the community courtyard.

But Lillian Grant got much more than a surprise party.

A week before the birthday party, Debbie Presland, the administrator of the senior living center, asked Lillian what she’d like for her birthday.

“A sweet cat like Sammy,” she said, according to Presland.

Lillian’s cat Sammy passed away a couple of years ago and she’s missed her dearly.

Presland contacted St. George animal shelter and started to plan her big surprise.

On the day of Lillian’s party, an animal control officer walked up to Lillian and presented her with a beautiful 9-year-old cat.

“Her reaction was priceless and brought tears to my eyes,” Presland said. “She is certainly one very happy lady and you can tell the cat (Marley) loves his new adopted momma.”

“Marley and Lillian both got a gift of love today,” she added.

According to Presland, the two are already inseparable. In fact, all Grant could talk about was how she wanted to leave the party to get settled in with her new companion. She even calls Marley, Sammy, after the cat she misses so much.

“A huge thank-you to St. George Animal Shelter for helping us bring Lillian the birthday gift she really longed for,” Presland wrote on Facebook. “Marley will be the most loved cat around!”

After bullies told this teen explorer ‘make me a sandwich’, she did just that… in the most incredible way possible

After Jade Hameister gave an inspirational TEDx talk encouraging young girls to reach for their dreams, the YouTube comments were flooded with internet trolls and haters telling her to “make me a sandwich.”

So the 16-year-old explorer from Melbourne, Australia, became the youngest person to conquer the Polar Hat Trick – having skied to the North Pole, across Greenland’s largest ice cap, and down to the South Pole.

So, when Jade made her way down to the South Pole this month, she served her trolls a sandwich — with a catch.

“Tonight (it never gets dark this time of year) I skied back to the Pole again… to take this photo for all those men who commented ‘Make me a sandwich’ on my TEDx talk,” she wrote on Facebook. “I made you a sandwich (ham & cheese). Now ski 37 days and 600km to the South Pole and you can eat it.”

Credit: Jade Hameister

Hameister was accompanied on the 37-day journey by her father, her guide Eric Philips and a two-person camera team from National Geographic, which will release a documentary about the experience later this year.

Pulling her own 220-pound sled for 373 miles, she arrived at her final destination without assistance.

The Last Jedi was the last film featuring Fisher before her untimely and unfortunate death.

Irish Judge Relieves Man Of Jury Duty For The Sweetest Reason

An Irish judge has been given praise for excusing a 54-year-old man from jury duty for the nicest reason.

The man had revealed he had planned a long weekend away with his partner, and that it was his ‘first time in love’

Sarah Jane Murphy, who is a journalist relayed the exchange that took place in a court in Dublin on Monday.

She shared the exchange with her followers on Twitter, however it has since gone viral, gaining thousands of retweets.

It reads:

“Man: I can’t serve; I’m away for weekend.

Judge: We don’t sit at weekends.

Man: I’m away till Monday. I’m 54, a bachelor & it’s my 1st time in love.

Credit: Twitter

Judge: Then you GO and you GO with my blessing.

It was truly an epic moment”

Sarah-Jane revealed that the man was hesitant at first, however as he delivered his reason for not being able to serve he gained confidence as he went on.

“The judge broke into a broad smile and the man walked away grinning,” she revealed, “The woman beside me turned to me and said, ‘Did I imagine that?'”

Twitter users have been doing what they do best, and making comments about the exchange and how it’s similar to the romantic comedy by Richard Curtis, Love Actually.

“Is this the ending to Love Actually II?” said one Twitter user, while another tweeted, “This honestly sounds like the ending to a film and it’s lovely!”

Another added, “Guilty of ‘Love In The First Degree’, perhaps?”

This Ad For A Free Rooster Is Hilarious And Will Keep You Going This Weekend

This advertisement from a woman in Michigan offers a free rooster, but more than anything, it seems like a hilarious cry for help.

“FREE to good home. Well, any home really. At this point I don’t give a sh*t what kind of home this inconsiderate jerk goes to: A**HOLE ROOSTER,” Denell McCaul said on the Facebook post, along with sharing a photo of the ‘pet’ she’s ended up hating.

Hilarious post

“He’s the perfect rooster if your alarm is broken and you need to be awake at 5:30 a.m,” she continued. “That is his only setting, 5:30. He has no snooze button but will be quiet just long enough for you to fall back to sleep and then he’ll start back up with his obnoxious cock-a-doodle-doing right outside of your windows. It’s like he knows where you sleep and can zone in on that particular window so maybe he has some sort of special x-ray vision where he can see sleeping people behind walls.”

“He is also a perfect rooster if you want to start running… around your yard… while you’re trying to get away from him. He no longer goes after me as he is also an instructor of interpretive dance. Or at least that’s what I imagine it looked like as I went after him flapping my arms, jumping up and down, kicking at him, yelling and screaming, and swinging a mop in his direction.

So, if you’re looking for an alarm clock with the only setting being 5:30 a.m., a personal trainer and a dance instructor, I have the perfect rooster that is able to fill all 3 of those positions FOR FREE! But you’re coming out to catch this a**hole, I want to see your first interpretive dance lesson.”
