Money doesn’t just grow on trees or magically appear when you need it. But there will be times that we would find some in private or public places. What you do with it, however, will describe who you really are.
Marvin Tan Juan Pigalan from the Philippines found a Php 500 (approximately US$ 9.62) bill while walking in the street. His first instinct was to return it to its rightful owner. But when he couldn’t find the person who dropped the cash, he decided to use it for a good cause instead of keeping it for himself.
Marvin took to Facebook to tell the owner of the money (probably hoping that his post would reach him or her) to not feel bad for losing the Php 500. He assured them that it was used in a good way, sharing that he bought some groceries for the homeless people using the money that he found.
“Yung may ari ng 500 na napulot ko wag ka mag alala nawala mo man yung pera pero nakatulong kanaman sa mga taong na ngangailangan ,hindi narin kasi kita makati para ma isoli ko sayo kaya ganyan nalang ginawa ko.”
(To the owner of the 500 that I found, don’t worry because even though you lost the money, you have helped those people who are in need. I couldn’t find you to return your money, so I did this instead.)
Attached to the post are photos of the money and the food that he purchased.
Marvin bought some packs of noodles, loaves of bread, and a few cans of sardines. He also asked the bagger to put the items in separate plastic bags for easier distribution.
Although it wasn’t really much since he only found and used Php 500, he certainly stretched the amount enough to provide food for a couple of homeless people.
Good Samaritan Pays for Hotel Rooms of 70 Homeless People During Freezing Weather
“All the folks there. Some wonderful citizen is going to put all of them up at a hotel for the rest of the week.”
In a world full of grim headlines, it's always refreshing when we hear about stories that show the goodness of humanity. Such inspiring accounts move our spirits and prove to us that, yes, there are still a lot of kind people out there who are willing to go the extra mile to help others.
Case in point, a mysterious donor made the generous offer of paying for the hotel rooms of 70 homeless people to keep them safe and warm from Chicago's freezing negative 22 degrees temperature.
According to reports, the homeless folks were from a camp in downtown Chicago. They were staying in makeshift tents and were using portable propane tanks for heating. Unfortunately, one of the tanks exploded and although none were injured, almost a hundred propane tanks were later confiscated by the authorities for being a safety risk. ...
Kind Teacher Helps Student Wearing Oversized Uniform Owned By Older Brother
The boy was also wearing shoes that were too big for him!
There is little doubt that all teachers are real-life heroes. However, one teacher went above and beyond his call of duty. The educator noticed that a student was wearing an oversized uniform as well as shoes that were too big for the child. When he found out that the uniform belonged to the boy's older brother, the instructor decided to help the kid.
Mohd Nasir Mohd Zain of Malaysia noticed that a Grade 3 student was having trouble with his uniform as he walked across the schoolyard. At close inspection, Zain realized that the uniform was way too big to belong to the small child. When the teacher asked about the clothes, the student admitted that it belonged to his older brother who was in sixth grade. The boy was also wearing shoes that were several sizes bigger than his own feet.
The boy was wearing baggy pants that would slide down when he walked.
He couldn't walk properly because his shoes were too big for him.

There are a lot of quotes stating that love is something unexpected. The love story of a Taiwanese couple is a perfect example of this.
A man named Lian, from Hsinchu, Taiwan, started donating blood when he was only 20 years old to help strangers. Lian whose sole purpose was to help those in need didn't expect that he will be saving the life of his future wife.
