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 – 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.

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

#WATWB Good People Doing Good Things — In Times Of Trouble

This post is absolutely awesome…. if you want to know what kindness is, and how one person can make a difference – no matter the age.

This week’s ‘good people’ post is just a bit late, but hopefully worth the wait. The trash man watcheth … We don’t give much thought to our trash collectors, or binmen … they come once or twice a week, pick up the trash, and that’s that.  They likely don’t give much thought to us, either.  […]

Good People Doing Good Things — In Times Of Trouble

I’m sharing this post for my WATWB post – we are the world bloggers, spreading light in a world of darkness. Watwb posts are shared the last Friday of the month. I’m sharing it in advance because Friday is Shavuot for me.

What kindness can you do? How can you spread love and light?

Love, light, and glitter

F:AK – Free Water 2

In my last acts of kindness post I wrote about the water someone gave to me and was leaving the previous water for a new post. And, now that I’m thinking of it, there is the third water gift acts of kindness post I can write. I haven’t written one of these in a while… and I’m glad to do it now.

I was in the airport in a foreign country. I had gone through security and wanted to buy myself a bottle of water from the machine. I went to the machine with my euros to buy it. Except that, I couldn’t, for the machine only took cards. It didn’t recognise my card either…

A guy saw and I think I asked him about it. He bought me a bottle with his card, and didn’t take my money from me, but gave me the water.

What act of kindness can you do for someone this week? What act of kindness has someone done for you in the past week?

In the past week, someone met me outside the krav maga class, someone bought me a treat, and loads of people smiled at me. It’s the little things that make the biggest difference…

You can do anything you want to do…
