His Car Breaks Down And Everyone Ignores Him. But Look Who Finally Stops To Help Him… WOW!

Imagine this scenario: your car breaks down and your cellphone is out of battery. You try to flag other drivers down for help but everyone ignores you. It’s a horribly frustrating experience and all we can do is hope that one kind soul will finally come to our aid. YouTube prankster Ryan from Hammy TV decided to do a social experiment and play out that scenario to see who would be willing to lend a helping hand. After being ignored for a very long time, someone finally stops and you have to hear this man’s story. It’s absolutely heartbreaking but it goes to show how wonderful human beings can be. Make sure you watch this video until the very end!

This Looks Like A Handicap Spot. And It Is. But Try To Park In It And… Pure Genius!

More than 30% of the drivers in Russia take disabled parking spaces without caring about the signs on the ground. To stop this inconsiderate behavior, a non-profit organization came up with a brilliant idea.

They installed projections of a real disabled person that popped up every time a non-disabled driver tried to park in their space. Special cameras verified the presence of the disabled sticker on their windshields and if no sticker was detected, the hologram would appear to confront the driver.

A dog comes home with a bag in his mouth. Nothing in the world can prepare you for what’s inside.

A small dog is surrounded by filth and chaos. But then he is able to do something wonderful, while saving a life. This is the stuff of stories that only life itself can provide.

It is an honor to introduce Pui to you. This little mut spends his days on the streets of Thailand’s capital, Bangkok. One day he was searching for something to eat in a dump when he came across a white plastic bag. Pui noticed immediately that there was something strange about this bag. Cautiously, he freed the bag from the dump and carried it in his mouth back to his family’s house. There he barked until people came.

1

A quiet whimpering eminated from the bag. Those who had gathered were becoming increasingly horrified until Pui’s owner opened the bag and revealed a newborn baby. The baby had clearly been born prematurely. His body was very fragile, so they took him home immediately, wrapping him in blankets before calling the ambulance.

2

The ambulance arrived in the knick of time. The baby weighed less than 5 pounds, a result of horrible undernourishment. When he arrived at the hospital he was fed through an IV before the hospital staff began searching for his irresponsible mother.

3

But most importantly: the little baby survived! Pui was the whole city’s hero. Everyone was proud of the little savior. A news team even came to film him and report on his miraculous rescue.

4

In a festive ceremony, Pui was given a collar with a small medal. His family also received a small reward of about 300 dollars. The money was desperately needed so they thankfully accepted. But Pui was clearly the center of attention. A truly remarkable dog!

5

The respect I feel for this animal is simply indescribable. I am unable to, and unwilling, to imagine what would have happened if Pui had not acted so quickly and cleverly. Share this story of Pui, the life saver!

She Was In A Car Crash And Left For Dead, When Suddenly A Stray Dog Did This

When Shannon Lorio crashed her car on a rural road, a stray dog emerged from the woods and came to her aid. Pulling her out of the car and dragging her over 100 feet back to the street, the dog enabled Shannon to flag down a passing vehicle and save her life.

Go ahead and grab the tissues, you’re going to need them.

Every time that the mother is pregnant, they give the kid to THIS woman. The reason? I have tears in my eyes.

When Melissa and Scott Groves from Nebraska got married, they wanted nothing more than children together. Melissa’s daughter Autumn, from her first marriage, even wrote that she wanted another sibling on her Christmas list. But, the doctors destroy all the family members’ hopes! The pair cannot conceive together. So Melissa and her husband decide to adopt instead. In April 2004, they get a call that changes their lives forever. They learn that they will get to care for the 3-year-old Noah and his 22-month-older brother Chase!

“We did not know quite what to expect, they felt the same way and they were afraid,” Melissa remembers. “But we have learned from each other and they have conquered our hearts. Even after a week we couldn’t imagine living without them.” But then the phone no longer stops ringing. The biological mother of the two boys has brought another baby into the world: Garrett. Hayden follows 11 months later. “As a premature baby born with a cleft palate and being already exposed to drugs in the womb, this little guy had a long way to go,” says Melissa. “But he was just about us as his other brothers; of course, we have said ‘yes.’”

After Garrett comes Ashton, Curran, and Bryer, who are now 6, 5, and 2 years old. Whenever the family Grovers learned that the biological mother of the brothers was pregnant, but unable to care for the children because of her drug addiction, they didn’t hesitate to take the boys in. “Scott and I never had a discussion about it. We always said yes.” The last baby is Zayn, who is now 1 year old and was born with Down syndrome. He was officially adopted last year with his 7 brothers.

“At this point people were starting to doubt my state of my mind. And there were quite a lot of times that I was overwhelmed by how quickly our lives turned upside down. But something in me always told me that these kids need to stay together,” explains the mother of the large family who does not hold grudge against the biological mother, with whom she keeps in touch on Facebook: “She’s not a bad person I know that she loves her children still. I can not imagine what she’s going through.”

She Thought They Were Just Playing Monopoly, But Then Something Amazing Happened

Reddit user Justinlebon26 and his girlfriend, Michal, have always loved playing Monopoly. They even used a handmade board back in the day, but after a few years, it fell apart. It was time for a new board — but it was also time for him to start a new life with Michal.

He decided to propose on Christmas morning, but he wanted to do something really unique. What better way to pop the question than to build a custom Monopoly board?

 

This board was custom built, but it was still inspired by the original one.

1

 

First, the property cards were designed on Excel.

2

 

He then printed them on thick card stock for a little extra durability.

3

 

Most of them are pretty standard, but one of them is totally new.

4

 

He even put a modern twist on some of them!

5

 

The board itself was made using recycled wood from an old ice chest.

6

 

He was then tasked with composing the layout of the board.

7

 

The house and hotel pieces were covered with metallic paint for a fancier look.

8

 

When finished, it looked seriously luxe.

9

The construction of the board itself was done by Justinlebon26′s friend Mark Becker.

The property spaces are named after places that are important to them, and it all started where they first met — on Match.com.

10

 

This is where they went on their first date.

11

 

Instead of railroads, he decided to go with resorts that they’ve stayed in on various vacations.

12

 

He also included their childhood streets…

13

 

…and the streets they lived on when they met.

14

 

There are some favorite vacation spots on there, too, like these in California…

15

 

…and these in Maui.

16

 

The pieces all rest in this cool container. You might notice a certain romantic addition.

17

 

The whole board was wrapped up and ready to be opened on Christmas day.

18

 

This card isn’t in the original game!

19

 

But when you advance to the “luxury tax” space, there’s a secret compartment.

20

 

Now that’s a proposal!

21

H/T: Viral Nova

Not only did Justinlebon26 create this board, but he also planned out the way that the proposal would unfold, even tricking Michal into thinking that it wasn’t going to happen. But that only lasted until she pulled the “Will You Marry Me?” card.

Now, in addition to having their memories, they’ll also have this gorgeous board as a unique treasure!

Doctors Told Her To Sacrifice Her Only Daughter To Save Her 2 Sons. Her Response? INCREDIBLE!

Chloe and her husband Rohan already have three beautiful boys, but they really wanted to have a girl.

1

 

They decided they would try one last time for their forth and final baby, no more after four!

2

 

So when Mom found out she was pregnant…

3

 

Everyone was overjoyed at the idea of having a new baby sibling! So a few weeks later Mom went to get an ultrasound; that’s when everyone got the shock of their lives…

4

 

“When they told us that what was supposed to be our ‘fourth and final’ baby is actually our fourth, fifth and sixth. I’m still so completely shocked to be honest. I’m scared, excited, overwhelmed, overjoyed and every other emotion known to man.”

A few weeks laters as her belly really began to get big, Chloe went to get a checkup at the doctor.

6

 

It turned out that there was a girl, but she wasn’t growing much. Her brothers were taking up all of the room, and as each day passed, the little unborn girl’s situation was getting worse and worse.

7

 

Doctors began to tell Chloe that the little girl inside of her would most likely die if they didn’t operate. But surgically removing all of the babies could actually risk the two healthy boys. Chloe was forced to make the choice, should she give her little girl a chance at life and put her brothers at risk too, or should she let the boys come out strong and healthy with no chance for her daughter?

8

 

The doctors told her the risks, but she kept up her faith. “At the time I could barely listen to any of that.. My mind was on a one way track of ‘I want ALL of my babies’, I did briefly consider the alternative, I did a lot of research and tried to get a feel for what they were in for.. I knew it would be tough but I just couldn’t give up on her.. I knew she was strong because she made it all the way to 28 weeks, when she was barely getting any nutrients in the womb.”

9

 

“I have felt so much guilt over my decision to deliver, especially early on when all three babies were going through so much in hospital and Pearl was dropping below her birthweight of 690g (1lb8oz), she was on a ventilator, fighting off infections, barely holding on. Sometimes I felt like I made the wrong decision, sometimes I felt like if I had chosen the other option, none of them would be suffering. And it was hard to admit that and deal with those feelings.”

Six Little Dunstans: Our Triplet Journey

With each passing day in the hospital, all three of her beautiful babies grew stronger and stronger.

11

 

With her husband Rohan taking good care of the other three, she was comfortable knowing that everything was going to be OK.

12

 

“My three babies, they all made it, and not only that but they’re all very healthy as far as we can tell. I guess I just wanted to say that I’m so very happy and grateful for how everything has worked out. I think back to that choice I was given and my heart aches when I think about the alternative. I couldn’t imagine life without her and I’m so proud of all three of them. I can’t wait to watch them grow.”

13

 

While the babies all took some time to get healthier, the family is finally back home together again! Five boys and one girl, all under 4 years old! Congratulations to the Dunstan family!

14

 

Her two brothers will always make sure to look over and protect their little sister!

Now your NEXT adventure begins with your five big brothers, Happy birthday, Pearl!

A Tough Prison Inmate Raised This Dog, But Watch What Happens When He Says Goodbye

Castaways is a documentary series chronicling the successful rehabilitation program of inmates that train unwanted dogs for re-introduction or adoption. The series highlights the plight that both prisoners and unwanted dogs face, and how an unlikely union between the two brings out a change in character of both man and beast — each trying to save and serve the other. The results are life-changing for the prisoner, the dog, and the future pet owner.

In the video below, you’ll meet a dog named Esther who was severely abused in a puppy mill before being rehabilitated through the Prison-trained K-9 Companion Program. It’s simply incredible to watch as Jason, a prison inmate, forms his bond with Esther, and eventually must say an emotional goodbye after successfully training her and helping her emerge from her shell.

It’s truly heartwarming — because, while many people shun both inmates and “undesirable” breeds like pit bulls and rottweilers, this program gives them an opportunity to look to each other for affection, friendship, and understanding and to foster each other’s growth. This type of program should be employed in more prisons across the country.

Dozens want to puke when they see her in a bikini. But what a stranger does instead is incredible.

Sara Gebert is 20 years old and lives in Pittstown, New Jersey. In 2013, she was diagnosed with a condition called chronic pseudo-bowel obstruction and gastroparesis. This very rare disorder of the digestive tract meant that the young woman has not been able eat or drink anything for 2 years. Sara vomited up to 60 times a day! She had to be put on an artificial diet and operated on to provide access points for the stomach before having a normal life. One day on vacation, the brave Sara has an extraordinary encounter with a woman and then writes an open letter on the internet to her. You have to read it for yourself.

“I don’t know how hard it was for you to approach me on the beach, but I know I have a hard time talking to strangers. But you waltzed up to me with such confidence that nobody would have ever expected a confidence problem with either one of us, especially since I have to carry myself with such an aura of it. You saw me for who I really was — a scared girl who was trying so hard to not let anyone see the fear in her eyes.

I don’t know if that’s why you came up to me or not, but I want to thank you. Living with a chronic illness is no easy feat, and it gets even harder when that illness changes your outer appearance as much as mine has. With clothes on, no one can tell that I’m anything but a “typical” person, but on the beach it’s a whole different story.

Everyone is exposed on the beach, but I literally have to “let it all hang out.” I have an ileostomy, a G-tube and a J-tube, not something you see every day. I’m used to them — to me they’re normal. But to everyone else, I’m something out of a science fiction movie. But you, you saw me as a person. You didn’t stare at my equipment, you looked me in the eye. And then — you thanked me.

I’m not sure you could tell, but I was stunned. I’ve had people approach me and call me gross or ask me, “Are you really going in the pool like that?” And when you came up to me, I was preparing for the worst. But what came next still has me in awe. You thanked me for rocking my bikini, told me about how you used to have an ileostomy as well and how you no longer have a large intestine. You told me I was inspiring. That honestly meant the world to me.

When I was packing for that trip, I agonized for hours about what bathing suits to bring. I actually brought every bathing suit I owned and money to buy a new one because I didn’t think I had the right one to hide everything. That morning I made a last minute decision to just wear my bikini as if I didn’t have any extra parts on my belly. I was so nervous. Every teenage girl can have body image issues, and since getting my ostomy, mine have been multiplied by 100. We hadn’t been on the beach long when you approached me, and I was already feeling uncomfortable, thinking all eyes were on my ostomy. But after speaking with you for those few short minutes, all my worries melted away. At that moment, I realized what I look like doesn’t matter, and for the rest of vacation, my only bathing suit issue was that I had severely over packed and probably didn’t need nearly as many as I had brought!

So thank you. Thank you for restoring my faith in the good of people. Thank you for allowing me to feel comfortable in my own skin. And finally, thank you for giving me the confidence to enjoy my vacation to the fullest extent.”
