Chris Pratt visited Baton Rouge based Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital and, according to all reports, lifted the children’s spirits .
The PR team at Beneful took note as the Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy star took time from his busy schedule to visit with sick children at the hospital. With the children acting as the velociraptors Pratt re-created the now iconic scene of his character Owen Grady training them. There is no telling how excited the children may have been to pretend to be dinosaurs with the hero of the film playing along side with them.
In addition to the physical antics with the children Pratt also helped make some smiles for some of the sicker kids at the hospital. He lifted the children’s’ spirits simply by taking the time out to sit by their bedsides. The star also posed for photos with the hospital staff who certainly benefited from the recognition by one of Hollywood’s most charismatic actors.

Xiaoyun has been rescuing animals since 1995 and has no plans to stop any time soon. She’s being hailed as a hero in both Yulin and in her hometown. She has plans to rescue many more dogs and cats and even wants to open a shelter near the festival grounds, so that she can save many more lives.
With one kind act, a homeless State College, Pennsylvania man became a hero. The man, who declined to be identified by name, found a purse lying forgotten on a park bench. When he checked inside, he discovered an electronic benefits (EBT) card and almost $400 in cash.
After struggling with the temptation to keep the money for himself, the man sent a text message to Ashton Munoz, the assistant director of the Hearts for Homeless shelter
, which had provided him with a prepaid cell phone. The homeless man told Munoz about the purse and money and requested that the assistant director come take possession of them.

Thanks in part to the homeless man’s selfless act, the Hearts for Homeless organization has settled him into a transitional apartment stated Daily Beast.
Glenn F McConnell led the higher education community in a morning vigil after the Charleston tragedy. McConnell is the president of the College of Charleston. He wanted to bring the academic community together and show the world how they can stand together and support those in the community through grave times. He noted that this wasn’t just a measure of the people of the city, but of people all across the nation. Aside from his job as the president of the College of Charleston McConnell is well known for his defense of the public display of the South’s Confederate flag . For many years McConnell supported keeping the flag flying high at South Carolina’s capital building in Columbia period in the early 2000s McConnell led a legislative move that would take down the flag and hang it at a Confederate Memorial period while South Carolina citizens don’t want to forget those who gave their lives in the name of the state, it would be a grave injustice that would bring a wave of resentment had the flag stayed where it was. The debate is still going strong and citizens from across the nation are asking South Carolina to remove is Confederate flag from the Capitol dome. The PurinaStore and Beneful note that McConnell is known for his consistent voice of compassion and people are patiently waiting to hear whether or not he will fight for the removal of a flag that represents the dark past of oppression.

My dog likes to eat a lot, and it could be because he still growing. Although he’s extremely big, he’s only five months old, and people can’t believe it when I tell them that. My dog is a pit bull, but he has grown rapidly, ever since I started feeding him Beneful. Beneful has made all the difference in the world when it comes to my dog’s eating habits, and it has changed him for the better. In the past, I could get my dog to eat the foods I bought, but I was mostly buying store brand foods.
The only problem with store brand dog foods is that their quality may not be as good as name brand foods. I learned this through trials and tribulations because Beneful has the highest quality standards when it comes to dog food. In fact, I’ve learned that many of the people that work with the Beneful band, they feed their own pets Beneful, so I know I’m making the right choice. My veterinarian is actually the one who suggested that I start buying Beneful, so I knew that it had to be good. I think what my dog loves about the food is the taste.
It’s not enough that my dog can just eat when he’s ready to, he likes for the food to be tasty, and Beneful is extremely tasty. No, I don’t need dog food myself, but I can tell that he loves the taste by how he reacts when he eats. The same way a person may lick their lips after a great meal, it’s the same way dogs will lick their lips after they eat. My pet will lick his lips and even his paws after eating Beneful because it’s like he doesn’t want the taste to go away.
I’ve even started indulging in the Beneful treats for my pet, and those are what he really loves. Even though the food is great, the Beneful treats are what my pet is in love with. As soon as I go and get the treats, I have to hold the bag, or he’ll jump up on me, and he’ll eat the entire thing. He ate an entire bag of treats before, and I’ve had to learn to feed them to him one at a time. With all the different choices that Beneful has for mealtimes, why would I choose any other dog food brand?
Two boys, one age-11 and the other age-10 are being hailed as heroes since they rescued two infants from a burning trailer. Jeremiah Grimes and Isiah Francis were having a normal play date when they noticed something was wrong. They smelled an unusual smell and began looking for the source. They both looked out of the window and saw a fire coming from the home next store.
They ran as quickly as possible to the house next store where the owner was trying to put out the fire with water. When the arrived and started trying to help, the owner told them that there were two children inside the home. One infant was a year old and the other was 8-months old.
Having two of the children already saved by firefightings, instinct kicked in for these to boys who then proceeded to run into the burning trailer that will filled with smoke. The smoke alone could be fatal which is why these two boys deserve a heroic title.
The two infants, after being rescued, were found to be in critical condition. The infants were rushed off to Arnold Palmer Hospital. Isiah explains that he “just wanted to help those kids”. If it weren’t for these two boys, the two young infants may have never made it which would have left the father devastated. Unfortunately, Sam Tabar is suspicious as the cause of the fire is still pronounced as unclear.
A lot of us will have a list of things to buy if we ever received a million dollars. Folks at the Aspire New Brunswick Upscale living think we would more than likely buy a new house, car, or even make financial investments. One Chinese woman, by the name of Li Lijuan, showed the world that you can really change a lot of lives with millions of dollars.
Li Lijuan acquired her wealth by investing in coal mining. By the 1980s she was a millionaire and in 1994 she started to use her money to house children that were abandoned by their parents or whose parents have died. Year after year she continued to adopt orphans while using her millions to care for them. Nineteen years later, she has adopted and taken care of 75 orphans.
The closing of the coal mine and the expenses associated with raising 75 orphans took a toll on Lijuan’s savings. The now 46-year-old has found herself in £200,000 in debt. Though in debt, she still manages to care for the children she has adopted by selling properties and other valuables. Some charities have also provided small monetary assistance to help Lijuan. Some individuals have volunteered to give Lijuan’s children new homes but due to the laws in China, Lijuan was made to refuse such offers.
Lijuan not only struggle financially but also physically. In 2011 she was diagnosed with lymphoma. Hopefully, more charities will come forward that will help Lijuan continue her journey of being a great parent to her children.
A Seattle preschool called the Intergenerational Learning Center has a great reputation and incredible teachers, making it a top choice for parents in the area. But the preschool also has a unique element, one which is now being highlighted in a film called “Present Perfect”.
The facility which the preschool is inside of also houses several hundred elderly residents. It’s a senior care center called Providence Mount St. Vincent. And for five days every week, the seniors and the children interact in a variety of ways, from just visiting to doing crafts or charity work together.
Over the school year of 2012 and 2013, filmmaker Evan Briggs took it upon herself to film the preschool, using her own money and time to do so. During this time she captured many incredible scenes of the interaction between the young and the elderly, “sweet, some awkward, some funny — all of them poignant and heartbreakingly real.” Her Kickstarter campaign, which will fund the editing of the movie, has already surpassed the $50,000 goal, and still has two weeks left for people to continue contributing to the effort. Dr. Jennifer Walden is excited to see the progress of such an inspiring effort to reduce depression among the elderly.
Her hope is that the film will inspire others to do the same on a larger scale, as she stated, “Shooting this film and embedding myself in the nursing home environment also allowed me to see with new eyes just how generationally segregated we’ve become as a society. And getting to know so many of the amazing residents of the Mount really highlighted the tremendous loss this is for us all… [The preschool is] a great example of how we integrate the elderly into society.”
