Wheelchair bought for puppy born with 6 legs
A dog owner and her young son were delighted this week when a kind stranger bought a wheelchair for their pup.
Roo was unusually born with 6 legs, and although he can walk, he sometimes struggles with maneuvering and can tire easily. Lauren, the owner, said she was shocked by the gesture, but incredibly grateful for the £400 gift from the donor who apparently had recently lost their own dog, so wanted to do “something good” in memory of her lost pet.
Schoolgirl encouraging acts of kindness
A schoolgirl from Canada is challenging her neighbours to complete an act of kindness every day in September after she began doing the same thing from the start of this year. Hennessey Veit began her deeds after she was challenged on air by a radio presenter, and now she wants to inspire others to follow suit. She said: “If I can do it for eight months, why can’t the public do it for a month?’ So I am challenging everyone in Centre Wellington to do a random act of kindness every day for the month of September,”
New Jersey girl raises money for school supplies
London Bostic from New Jersey set up a lemonade stand recently, but instead of using the proceeds to boost her pocket money, the young girl used the money to help other kids.
Her mother said: “London agreed she didn’t need more toys or clothes,” said her mom Nicole. “Since back to school is approaching, we agreed to use the proceeds to buy school supplies for kids in need.”
London was thrilled with the haul she bought with the $480 her lemonade had made, which included books, bags and lunch boxes.
