In The Line Of Duty

An 83-year-old woman whose home was damaged by hurricane Harvey returned from shelter to find her home stripped bare. Destitute and giving up on making a difference, she slept on the floor, and used the water from the toilet tank to bathe herself.
A local repairman who was told to do some service came and thought the house was abandoned, but was greeted by the woman. Moved by her awful state, he began putting together money to help her. Which in turn, inspired the whole community to get involved. Now, with her home restored, she wants to pay it forward to as many people as she can.
In It For The Long Haul
A suicidal man waited on a bridge in Michigan. A trucker noticed the situation and quickly parked underneath to thwart him. Immediately, he hailed other truckers to stop as well.
All in all, 13 semi-trucks parked under the bridge, leaving no gaps for the man to jump through.
In time, he was talked out of the act and came down safely.
From Sun And Sand To A Helping Hand
Baseball player Carlos Pena, supporter of many organizations and even spokesperson for Big Brothers Big Sisters, was on vacation visiting his family in the Dominican Republic, when he felt the tremors of a nearby earthquake. Haiti had just been ravaged by the infamous earthquake of 2010, which affected millions. And the effects of it can still be felt today.
Graciously, he donated to the relief and promoted how others could help. He helped organize press conferences and other media events to promote the assistance of this country in need.
To Carlos Pena, you can never take a vacation from helping others.
