Sunday sunshine and sparkles – 13 year old buys his mother a car

This is more than sunshine and sparkles. Yet it fits into this more than my F:AK (Friday – acts of kindness) posts… these teens inspire me and show me how much is possible.

William Rabillo’s family was going through a rough time. His single mother, Krystal Preston, was trying to provide for her three kids and three dogs, barely making ends meet.⁠ +⁠ William, 13, didn’t tell anyone but he was determined to buy his mom a car. He spent days mowing lawns and cleaning yards in exchange for the car. He also gave away his Xbox as part of the deal. ⁠ +⁠ One day "William came home and said, 'Mom I bought you a car,'" Krystal wrote in a Facebook post. "I of course laughed and told him, 'Ya right!'. She thought he was joking.⁠ +⁠ But then they went outside and Krystal saw the car and the owner, who handed her the keys and paperwork. “I am speechless,” Krystal wrote. “My 13-year-old son bought me a car. I am so proud of my son… William I love you son and thank you…”⁠ — ⁠ h/t: KUTV⁠ Photo: Krystal June Preston⁠ GoFundMe: https://www.gofundme.com/f/jpp6b-the-preston-family •••⁠ @globalpositivenews⁠ @globalpositivenews⁠ @globalpositivenews⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #caring #heartwarming #positivepsychology #globalpositivenews #news #somegoodnews #tanksgoodnews #Positivenews #positivenergy #positivity #onemillionactsofgood⁠ #kindness #kindnessmatters #randomactsofkindness #actsofkindness⁠ #mademecry #imnotcrying #imnotcryingyouarecrying⁠ #kidsareawesome #kidsarethebest #kidsarethefuture #singlemommy #motherandsonbond #motherandsungoals #familylove❤️ #yardwork #xboxplayer #newcar

Sunday Sunshine and Sparkles – Note in a caravan

F:AK – protecting a car from the rain

View this post on Instagram

I parked my car in an outdoor lot. I forgot to roll up my window, because my mind, as always, must’ve been on other things. I came back a long time later — many, many, many days later. Look what a perfect stranger had done for me, in my absence. ⁠ +⁠ Look at the beautiful poem of love that is this note: “Your window was down and the rain was coming. I did my best to help you out. xx — The green truck next to you.” ⁠ +⁠ By the time I saw this note, the green truck was long gone. I will never know who did this for me. But I love you. Thank you for taking the time to do this kind act for a stranger. I’m sitting here in my parked car, unable to drive because there are tears in my eyes. ⁠ +⁠ I am reminded once more of this sacred truth: Never doubt that thousands of invisible hands are helping you at all times. Love is everywhere, even if you can’t see it. The tenderest care will arrive when you least expect it, and from someone whose name you may never know. Thank you, Green Truck. Thank you.⁠ –⁠ via: Elizabeth Gilbert / Facebook⁠ •••⁠ @globalpositivenews⁠ @globalpositivenews⁠ @globalpositivenews⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #caring #heartwarming #positivepsychology #globalpositivenews #news #somegoodnews #tanksgoodnews #Positivenews #positivenergy #positivity #onemillionactsofgood⁠ #mademecry #imnotcrying #imnotcryingyouarecrying⁠ #kindness #kindnessmatters #randomactsofkindness #actsofkindness #helpingothers #kindstranger

Sunday Sunshine and Sparkles – letter to the tooth fairy

F:AK – Paying it forward through hope and life.

Michael, 15 years old, started baking when he was 11 and had to quit school due to his epilepsy. For each pastry someone buys he gives one away to the homeless or poor. He’s taken his life challenges and is using it to help others…

Michael Platt, was diagnosed with epilepsy in 6th grade, and when his seizures became too severe and frequent, he had to quit school. Michael’s mom, Danita, also quit her job to home-school Michael and take care of him full-time. ⁠ +⁠ "It was a very, very difficult time," Danita said "He had to stop everything he loved: gymnastics, climbing trees, diving. So that's when he kind of threw himself into baking."⁠ +⁠ When Michael was just 11-years-old he started a baking business in his family’s house to help homeless and hungry people in his hometown of Bowie, MD. For every pastry a customer buys, Michael gives one to a person in need.⁠ +⁠ Every month Michael, now 15 y.o., hands out dozens of baked goods to kids, adults, and families in domestic violence and homeless shelters. He also bakes to raise money for nonprofit organizations that fight hunger such as ‘No Kid Hungry’.⁠ –⁠ h/t: Washington Post⁠ Photos: Michael’s Desserts / Facebook, @michaelsdesserts⁠ •••⁠ @globalpositivenews⁠ @globalpositivenews⁠ @globalpositivenews⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #caring #heartwarming #positivepsychology #globalpositivenews #news #somegoodnews #tanksgoodnews #Positivenews #positivenergy #positivity #onemillionactsofgood⁠ #mademecry #imnotcrying #imnotcryingyouarecrying⁠ #homeless #homelessness #helpingpeople #bakery #homebaking #epilepsy #kidsarethefuture #faithinhumanity #selfless #feedthehungry #desserts #michaelsdesserts

Sunday sunshine and sparkles: 100yr old veteran raises millions to help those impacted by covid 19

Tom Moore completed 100 laps of his garden to raise money to help those struggling because of the virus. He was aiming for a thousand before his 100th birthday on the 30th April 2020 but he far surpassed his goal.

Image of Tom in his garden. Screenshot of just giving page showing he raised 32 million, 796 thousand, and 357 pounds to help NHS charities.

Tom’s walk inspired 90 year old Margaret Payne to climb her 17 stairs a total of 282 times – 2,398 feet – to raise money. You can still donate to her campaign here.

I’d love to see your sunshine and sparkles…. please write, or share.

F:AK – Landlord helps tenants instead of evicting them.

Wes Moberly lost his job and couldn’t pay his rent. After 2 months his landlord Ellery Lewis went to check up on the family. Instead of evicting them he gave the family $100 towards their necessities, taking a load off their shoulders, and will work out a repayment plan with them- and all his other tenants who can’t afford to pay rent due to Coronavirus work difficulties.

I reeeeally needed to see this today! Happy birthday, Christian 🥰🥰🥰#Repost @globalpositivenews ・・・ When Lindsay Larsen from Meridian, ID, was sending out invitations for her autistic son’s 9th birthday, she wasn’t expecting to receive only a single ‘yes’ in return. Disappointed, she wrote an emotional post about it on social media.⁠ +⁠ In response one of Lindsay’s friends shared the invitation with Nampa High School football coach Dan Holtr. ⁠ +⁠ "[The team] was ready and willing to celebrate with Christian. Within seconds of a sent text they were 100 percent in. No hesitation whatsoever," Dan wrote in an email to CNN.⁠ +⁠ The football team showed up at Christian’s party, wearing their jerseys and chanting his name. Christian stood there in awe for a while, then gave them all high fives while jumping up and down.⁠ +⁠ "He talked about it for days. He has said multiple times that it was the best birthday ever," said Lindsay.⁠ –⁠ h/t: CNN⁠ Video: Lindsay Barrus Larsen / Facebook⁠ •••⁠ @globalpositivenews⁠ @globalpositivenews⁠ @globalpositivenews⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #caring #heartwarming #positivepsychology #globalpositivenews #news #somegoodnews #tanksgoodnews #Positivenews #positivenergy #positivity #onemillionactsofgood⁠ #kindness #kindnessmatters #randomactsofkindness #actsofkindness⁠ #autismawareness #autismwarrior #autismacceptance #autismlove #birthdaypartyfun #birthdayparty🎉 #highschoolfootball #footballteam #birthdayday #birthdaycelebration #birthdayfun #birthdaysurprise
