This Starving Little Boy Was Accused Of Witchcraft, So He Was Cruelly Abandoned

Danish aid worker Anja Ringgren Lovén has seen some horrible things, but when she came across one little boy in Nigeria, she was beyond shocked.

While working for an aid organization to bring food to southern Nigeria, she came across an emaciated little boy roaming the streets. The two-year-old orphan was naked, riddled with worms and close to death due to starvation and thirst.

In the heart-breaking video of the encounter, the disoriented little boy was too weak to stand after Anja gave him a sip of water. As he kept falling over, she asked why no one was feeding the child. The locals responded, “no mother, no father.”

That’s when Anja pieced together the toddler’s nightmarish situation. Like thousands of other Nigerian children, he had been abandoned by his family after being accused of witchcraft.

Anja took in the small boy and named him Hope.

We’re very happy to report that since his rescue from the streets in January of this year, Hope is now a healthy and happy boy. Being rejected by your own family must be the loneliest feeling a child can experience, but he’s found a new loving family now at an orphanage recently opened by Anja.

Hope is all smiles these days.

There are terribly cruel things in this world, but a kind act like this can restore your faith in humanity.

Seeing an abandoned, starving child like this boy be welcomed into a happy community is enough to give anyone hope (pun intended).

They Told Granny To Close Her Eyes Before Showing Her Something Incredible

We’ve seen hundreds of videos involving surprise pregnancy announcements, but as adorable as those videos are, this one gives them all a run for their money.

YouTuber Jeff Deal and his wife had a very big surprise planned for his grandmother when they showed up at her house one day. Before they began, they told her to keep her eyes closed and sit down.

“It is with immeasurable joy that I introduce you to your great-grandson, Jordan Chase,” were the words Grandma heard as she opened her eyes and instantly started crying. The couple had been trying to adopt for nearly 20 years, so this was a very special moment for everyone involved.

These are the experiences that make life worth living. Don’t you feel like you’re right there in the room with them? There’s nothing quite as beautiful as the love of family.

Marine Dressed In An Eagle Costume Surprises His Daughter After 7-Month Deployment

When fourth grader Destiny Passmore was chosen to take part in a special game during her school’s Patriot Day celebration, she had no idea that she was in for a massive surprise.

The event at Tournament Hills Elementary School in Beaumont, California, started when the principal explained its significance to the children. “Fifteen years ago Sunday, our country was attacked,” she said. “You were not alive during this time, but your parents were, and so were all of your teachers. We remember this day well and it brought a lot of sadness to this country.”

She then told the students that lots of parents were currently deployed across the world and while most of the kids got to see their moms and dads every day, not all were so lucky. One of those students was Destiny. Her father, Gunnery Sergeant Demetrius Passmore, had been deployed with the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit on the USS Boxer for the last seven months and wasn’t expected home for a while.

But then the little girl noticed something funny about that eagle mascot standing on the court. Watch what happened when a teacher removed his mask!

Is anyone else crying?

You can tell how much Destiny and her brother Dominic missed their father. Even though they regularly got to talk to him through Skype, they were growing tired of the separation and the thousands of miles between them.

This Is What ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Becomes After Going Through Google Translate

Google Translate is a wonderful tool when you want to translate entire websites or when you’re stumped on a foreign word you really should know but for some reason can’t remember. But how does it handle song lyrics?

Singer and YouTuber Malinda Kathleen Reese decided to put it to the test when she took the lyrics to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and passed them through several different language translations before ultimately translating them back to English. The result is pretty hilarious.

This is a perfect example of why I truly love the Internet. What a time to be alive!

All goofiness aside, she has a really good voice.

Elephant Breaks A Sprinkler And Does Exactly What You’d Expect An Elephant To Do!

When an elephant named Faa Sai accidentally broke a sprinkler that was watering the grass at her home in Elephant Nature Park in Thailand, she decided to make the most of the situation with an impromptu bath.

According to staff at the reserve, this is the second time Faa Sai has ‘accidentally’ broken a sprinkler. Personally, I have an inkling that she knows exactly what she’s doing!

That was completely hysterical. At one point, it looked like she was using that sprinkler as her own personal bidet.

This Abandoned Dog Had Completely Given Up On Life — Until The Police Arrived

When Powder was found abandoned in the middle of the Florida Everglades he appeared to have completely given up on life.

The poor dog’s body was shutting down and he could barely move a muscle.

Luckily for Powder, he wouldn’t need to live another day in the harsh Everglades. Help was at hand when a kind couple found him and called the sheriff’s office for help.

92-Year-Old Woman Has Served Food And Inspiration To Generations Of Students

Ninety-two-year-old Angelina Narcisse has been serving food and inspiration for an incredible 62 years at the University of Louisiana in Lafayette. The sweet woman with a heart of gold is everyone’s favorite lunch lady and with good reason. Narcisse never went to school herself, so she can neither read nor write, but she’s a professor when it comes to dishing out sage words of wisdom to her students.

The great-great-great-grandmother raised 10 children, but thousands more have come to know her as “ma” over the decades.

This just goes to show that kindness goes a long way towards inspiring others to become the best versions of themselves.

Wild Dog With Its Head Stuck In A Plastic Jar Receives A Helping Hand

Stray dogs raised on the streets or in the wild quickly learn how to fend for themselves. That often means digging through trash to find even the tiniest scraps of food, and burrowing into piles of garbage for shelter. That desperation to survive can sometimes lead to tragedy.

The good people at Animal Aid Unlimited got a call about a wild dog living next to a trash-filled river that had been spotted with its head stuck in a plastic jar. It took a bit of searching, but eventually, they found the pup walking in the woods. The poor thing was barely able to breathe.

Watching the dog run free at the end put the biggest smile on my face! Due to the extreme number of stray dogs, Animal Aid Unlimited can only bring animals in the most desperate need of help back to their center, which is why they had to let this pup go after rescuing it.

If you’d like to support them, please visit their site and donate! They do truly wonderful work.

A Pair Of Cute Dogs Show Off Their Pitch-Perfect Music Skills

We’ve seen plenty of piano-playing dogs before, but most of the time they aren’t exactly musically talented. In the video below, however, we get to see a duo of fluff balls tickling the ivories…and boy are they good. Every time their owner plays a note, the dogs hit the exact same note. This is no small feat — most people have to study for years to master this skill.

We all knew dogs had incredible hearing, but this is something else!

I’d love to have these two play me a song with their pitch-perfect piano skills.

Animal Rescuers Find 5 Puppies Left To Die In The Freezing Cold

For many, especially animal lovers, the prospect of abandoning pets by the side of a road is unimaginable and cruel.

Yet hundreds of helpless animals find themselves on the street without any food or water every day. They often go days without eating before they’re found, and some are never found at all. Luckily, the five puppies in the video below were rescued by incredible people from the Michigan Humane Society (MHS).

After receiving a call about a plastic container on the side of the road, the MHS went to investigate. Inside they found five tiny puppies that were presumably left there to die. Rescuers quickly took them back to their facility for treatment.

Just wait until you see how they’re doing today!

It breaks my heart to think about the number of animals that find themselves in similar situations each year.

Luckily, this story has a happy ending. One of these pups has been adopted and the other four are in foster care awaiting forever homes!
