An Animal Shelter in Danville, Indiana, was running out of food. Now, they're drowning in donations from kind strangers!
The Hendricks County Animal Shelter in Danville, Indiana, posted a message on Facebook where they asked for donations of cat food since they were running out. Sadly, their post got zero responses, which was pretty uncanny, as typically, they get at least a few donations. But when their post was shared by IndyStar.com, a local news website, the Animal Shelter was flooded with donations from all over the United States, which goes to show the power of having a big audience on social media, huh? "It's just so overwhelming," said LaDonna Hughes, who's the chief director of the Animal Shelter. "You don't always see the best in people these days. It is so awesome to still see the good in people. This has been very emotional and the outpouring of support has been wonderful."
A cashier at Walmart did a woman's nails after a salon refused to serve her.
Tasia Smith, who works at the Subway inside a Walmart store, felt she needed to step in when she noticed a salon refused to do a woman's nails. Walmart's nail salon, "Da Vi Nails" claims that the woman moved too much and didn't want to service her. Unbeknownst to them, the woman in question suffers from cerebral palsy. That's when a loving Walmart cashier stepped in and took care of the woman, and completely turned the situation around.
Tasia Smith shared the story on Facebook, which left many praising the cashier and everyone who was there to save the day: "Today, this sweet girl went into Burton Wal-Mart's nail salon, Da Vi nails, and they denied her service because she moves too much," Smith wrote in a Facebook post. "Out of the kindness of the Walmart workers' hearts they went and bought nail polish and came into my work to paint this sweet girl's nails. They were so patient with her (which she did great, barely moved & was just so sweet)... Thank you to the Walmart workers for making this beautiful girl's day!"
A mom was in tears after she couldn't get tickets to Pentatonix for her kids, when a group of women decided to donate their own tickets.
Talk about a selfless act! Heather Hobbs had promised her little ones that they'd finally get to go to a Pentatonix concert at Arkansas Music Pavilion when she realized someone made a horrible mistake. She had bought her tickets on Stub Hub, and as they were making their way towards the entrance, they were stopped and requested to get their electronic tickets validated and turned into paper tickets. That's when the employees informed her that her tickets were valid for an event that would take place in Dallas Texas, on a totally different day.
They had the option of buying new tickets right then and there, but they simply couldn't afford it. After a few angry calls and tears from both the kids and their mother, they decided to leave. Suddenly, a woman walked up to them, asking what was going on. The second Hobbs shared her story, the woman and her friends decided to gift them their tickets as they claim it didn't mean much to them as they had gotten the tickets on sale on Groupon. To say that this mom was beyond grateful is an understatement.
She shared on her Facebook post, "I wish I would have asked their name or address to be able to repay them some way. As we sit here on the lawn at the concert, all the twins can think about are those people. There is STILL kindness in the world and I hope they know they made the night of a little boy and girl who were utterly heartbroken."

Therra Cathryn was down on her luck when she ran into an "angel" at Whole Foods.
Here's a story that proves we don't really know celebrities even though we stalk them on social media every other day. Therra Cathryn had recently received a Whole Foods gift card, which she was planning on spending on pizza with exotic toppings, hummus, other necessities, but most importantly, she needed food for her pets. Right as she was about to pay for everything, she realized that the gift card didn't cover everything she had bought. The man in front of her offered to pay for everything, even though it amounted to $375 total. She started crying and thanking the kind stranger. They exchanged a few words, and he left.
