Just when you think humanity and empathy has gone the way of dinosaurs, stories like this remind me there actually are good people still in this world. How so? Perfect strangers dug under their couch cushions, broke the piggy banks (hey, it is still a recession) and opened their wallets to a little boy facing a big challenge. Little Kayden was diagnosed with a rare illness at birth (in 2012) that caused his legs to be removed. With two abdominal surgeries under his young belt he’s trying to get use to walking with his walker and stand up on his own.
Despite his parents nervousness, he says he’s “got it.”
Now those random philanthropists have got their parents’ back by donating over $50 Gs, surpassing their goal, to cover medical expenses and any future surgeries Kayden may need. To make a donation towards the New Jersey toddler click here.
And guess what? Kayden isn’t the only lucky little boy to have his prayers answered, two pop singers used their powers to make two fans feel extra special.
Bruno Mars pulled out all the stops for Cleveland native Zumyah Thorpe, who was in a critical car crash that killed her mom and sisters. Zumyah suffered brain injuries. When Bruno heard that he was inspirational to her recovery he sent her front-row concert tickets and serenaded her during his concert. What a great guy. Check the video below
J.T. or Justin Timberlake is bringing sweetness back. He gave V.I.P treatment to tween Robbie Twible, who suffers from a debilitating skin disease, by giving him a limo lift from Long Island to his concert, where he sat in front row seats at the Hammerstein Ballroom. The New York Daily News reported that Twible may have trouble walking, but he busts a mood to a Timberlake jam. Duh? Who doesn’t?
What a week of good works. Let it continue to sprout branches and grow.
