After some chatting and learning Ryan’s story, James offered him a job at his paint-coating company. Ryan was thrilled and the two snapped a picture and posted it on social media where it went viral. Ryan’s local milkman even offered him a ride to his first day! Ryan now loves his job at James’ company. In response to the amazing outpouring of support through social media, they have set up a go fund me page to get Ryan permanent housing. Way to make a difference in this young man’s life, James!
Randy Jones was doing work along the highway on a particularly hot day in Oklahoma City when he noticed Logan Duncan holding up a stop sign. Jones pulled over to ask the boy what he was doing to which Logan said he noticed the sign had been run down and he had almost witnessed an accident because of it, so he returned on his lunch break to hold it up. Jones called city workers and asked them to come by and fix the sign, but not before grabbing a picture of the young man to share his good dead with the world.
Last week, Steven and Michelle Burt were flying JetBlue airlines from Orlando to Worcester, MA with their 3-year-old French bulldog, Darcy. Mid-flight the couple noticed Darcy was in distress. When they took him out of his pet carrier they saw that his gums and tongue had turned blue, meaning he was not receiving enough oxygen. Flight attendants Renaud Spencer and Diane Asher came to the rescue with a small oxygen mask. Darcy has since made a full recovery thanks to the quick thinking of these flight attendants.
Another week of good people doing good things, sometimes we all need to be reminded that there is still good in this world. Now go have a great weekend!
