Hundreds of homeless adults and children are roaming around the busy and dangerous streets every day. With ragged or no clothes, footwear, food, shelter, we see that most of them only get by because there are still some generous people who are willing to lend a helping hand. Sadly, this is common in most parts of the world.
Many have become calloused and apathetic that they choose to turn their heads the other way; pretending not to see how much these unfortunate ones need help.
OCK TV decided to facilitate a social experiment to see how many people would help a young boy who’d disguise himself as a homeless child.
The boy will be alone in the streets of New York, amidst freezing weather. He will have nothing more aside from his normal clothes, shoes, and a garbage bag to cover his cold, shivering body. Under such harsh condition, can you imagine the boy’s state?
Now watch and see who will help him.
Can you believe who finally helped him after that so many hours? A homeless man who had nothing much to offer gave whatever he had for someone in dire need.
I hope we all learned something valuable from that social experiment because I sure did.
As writer and preacher John Bunyan once said:
“You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can’t repay you.”

She trained her 4-year-old Rottweiler Samson to stop her from self-harming.
One of the challenges that patients of Asperger’s Syndrome has is the capacity for self-harming. It may seem like a hopeless situation for some but Danielle Jacobs found a way to help herself deal with the problem with the aid of her loving dog, Samson.

“This is what having Aspergers is like,” Jacobs narrates on YouTube. “This is what’s considered a meltdown…I trained him to alert to depressive episodes and self harm not both but he alerted.”...
Touching Short Film Documents Mothers’ Love Through The Eyes and Voices of Young Children
Moms: let the children tell you how much you are appreciated!
It is an understatement to say that a mother's love is immeasurable. For mothers, it is but natural to do everything for their kids. They've embraced their roles as the primary carers and guardians of their children and they show it in simple yet very meaningful ways. For them, nothing is extraordinary with their daily chores as they do it out of love and honor to their children. They do things without expecting anything in return because even if they sometimes feel the burden of taking care of the home, they are, at the end of the day, happy and fulfilled.
In this short film/ video that we found, the maker, Matt Bieler, got inspired by his sister who is taking care of her three children. So he created this short clip entitled "3 Queens," which feature moms' selfless deeds for their children. It is really touching and after watching the video, we can't help but recall everything our mothers did for us when we were still young. Furthermore, we are pretty sure mothers whose kids have already grown up miss these types of daily tasks.

Graffiti Artist Chose Facebook Stock Instead Of $60,000 Cash, Makes $200 Million.
Facebook graffiti artist takes Facebook stock instead of the $60,000 cash he was offered as a payment for his paintings.
Since it started in 2004, Facebook has been such a great influence to billions of people worldwide. Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz and Sean Parker are only some of the biggest names behind the famous social networking site. Success doesn't happen overnight--they took risks, gambled and worked their way to the top. Facebook's very own graffiti artist David Choe share the same story.
Although he initially thought that Facebook was 'ridiculous and pointless,' Mr. Choe , a habitual gambler chose to receive company stock in lieu of cash payment when he spray-painted the first Facebook offices in 2005. During his appearance on The Howard Stern Show in 2012, he discussed his life changing windfall and talked about the money he was then-supposed to receive from his Facebook stock.
