A truly creative marriage proposal

There's a guy named Jon Blaze who lives in Houston, Texas. He and his girlfriend, Thao Nguyen, love taking bike rides together. So a few months ago, he asked her to go on a ride he'd set up. It was almost 16 miles long, and Thao remembers, "I went from being so annoyed by all the crazy turns we did, to being completely shocked with a big smile on my face."
After they finished the ride, Jon showed Thao a map of the route they just travelled. As you can see, it says MARRY ME. Then he proposed to her. They hope to get married this fall.

A wheelchair giveaway

Ten years ago, Philip Pavone owned a pawn shop, and some of his old, motorized wheelchairs had not sold. So he placed an ad in the local Connecticut paper offering them for free. Within two weeks, he received sixty (60) letters from people who needed them.
"At that moment, I realized how many people out there were suffering," he said. Some who wrote to him had not been able to leave their homes for months, or years. So he bought, repaired and gave away four more used wheelchairs. Then he asked people to donate them, so he could repair them and give them away. Now his process of pairing recipients with their chairs culminates each year with a major event during the holiday season, when 100 chairs and scooters are given away free in a single day.

A crumb from Muncie, Indiana

Early in July, the Muncie Police Department made several social media posts announcing that people with unpaid parking tickets could pay off their fines by donating pet supplies to Muncie Animal Care and Facilities. The offer said, "Bring a donation of cat food, kitten food or kitty litter in the amount of your ticket."
The shelter was overrun with cats and kittens. Shelter workers said they have been caring for more than 350 cats during the summer, and are desperately in need of supplies. The two-day donation drive was a big success. According to police, dozens of people donated cat food and litter -- and many of them did not even have parking tickets.
