"The good ole days weren't always good, and tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems." — Billy Joel

Good News:

  • Little Free Pantry is going national, from creator Jessica McClard’s front yard in Fayetteville, Arkansas, to locations all around the U.S. Each pantry is stocked with items like canned and boxed foods, school supplies and hygiene products, inspired by the Little Free Library project: "It's a very tangible way to help your neighbor."

  • In 1993, a bullet severed Deodat Jhoda’s spine. Today, he volunteers as a driver for Self Reliance, Inc., delivering medical supplies, including wheelchairs, to disabled people across Tampa. All of this, he does from his own wheelchair: "If I’m able to wake up every day and make a difference, however big, however small, in someone else's life, it made my day."

  • An 88-year-old Canadian man created a high-powered machine in his living room to knit thousands of socks for homeless shelters. Bob Rutherford has made more than 10,000 pairs of socks on in a project dubbed “Socks by Bob”: "There's a lot of us, as we grow older, we sit at home and look at the wall with nothing to do. And Socks by Bob has given me that something to do.”
