This little girl is absolutely overjoyed. It’s her birthday, and she’s celebrating with her father, whose birthday is also coming up. But instead of receiving gifts, this British dynamic duo decided to combine their ages and pay the fun forward with 39 random acts of kindness.

Amélie and her father Lee Beck, spread their generosity on strangers by “granting wishes,” writing letters of gratitude, and doling out adorably decorated pencils.

The father-daughter team compiled a list of possibilities and whittled it down based on their budget. Lee told the Good News Network the goal of remaining anonymous was foremost in their plans. Then, the two took to the streets.

“There are still qui

VATICAN CITY -- In a sweeping environmental manifesto aimed at spurring concrete action, Pope Francis called Thursday for a bold cultural revolution to correct what he described as a "structurally perverse" economic system where the rich exploit the poor, turning Earth into an "immense pile of filth."

Francis framed climate change as an urgent moral issue to address in his eagerly anticipated encyclical, blaming global warming on an unfair, fossil fuel-based industrial model that harms the poor most.

Citing Scripture, his predecessors and bishops from around the world, the pope urged people of every faith and even no faith to undergo an awakening to save God's creation for future gener

How would you feel if you discovered that your Facebook friend was a fake? Possibly not even the same gender you expected? What if the most recent friend request you got isn’t actually from someone real? It's a serious problem.

A person using the Facebook name of Melissa Young is also a fake Facebook account. The person using this account, more than likely, a male, is actually using the photo of famous model Emily Ratajkowski, the photo of which is shown in this story.

Example of fake Facebook account

Many of the fake profile photos are actually professional models as is our example. It's easy to d

Doc the pit bull recently spent what's thought to be the first night of her life snuggled up to a person in bed.

She seemed thrilled with the experience.

"She slept soundly all night and really enjoyed having a home, even if it was just for the night," says Jason Cooke, a volunteer with Animal Charity of Ohio.

Cooke had the pleasure of Doc's company -- but briefly -- because he was bringing this doggie to a TV station in the morning for a spot, with the hopes of helping her find a home where she'll sleep in bed every night. Or, at least, be off a kennel floor.

In the meantime, for that one night: bliss.

Though most of us detest Saturdays spent washing and folding, one mom knows that for those who go without, laundry can truly be a luxury.

Close to 70 people came to a London, Ontario laundromat last month to do three hours worth of laundry -- for free. For the Love of Laundry, a social good startup based in London, has been hosting the events since 2014 to help families in need.

Melissa Power, a formerly single mother who once had difficulty affording basic needs like clean clothes, founded the organization. “I had a hard time making ends meet, so certain "luxuries" often had to wait, and laundry fell into that "luxury" category.” Power told The Huffington Post in an email. “Fast forwa

As the saying goes, it’s quality, not quantity that is important, but this amazing dressmaker demonstrates both.

Lillian Weber recently celebrated her 100th birthday by soaring past her goal of sewing 1,000 dresses for kids in need, FOX News reported.

Since 2011, the centenarian, who lives in Iowa, has been creating handmade garments for Little Dresses for Africa -- a Christian nonprofit that has sent more than 3 million dresses to young girls in 47 African countries and 31 other countries beyond, according to the organization’s website.

Weber has made a new dress nearly every day, the Quad-City Times reported, starting in the morning and completing the garment that same afternoon.

As American Pharoah came out of the far turn and squared his shoulders to let his rider Victor Espinoza stare down the long withering stretch of Belmont Park, a sense of inevitability surged through this mammoth old grandstand. The fans in a capacity crowd strained on the tips of their toes and let out a roar from deep in their souls. It was going to end, finally — this 37-year search for a great racehorse.

No, a battered old sport was looking for an immortal thoroughbred, one worthy to stand alongside Sir Barton and Assault, War Admiral and Whirlaway, Count Fleet and Citation, a horse able to earn the title of a Triple Crown champion.

The Triple Crown trophy, which was commissioned in

When the plane crash occurs, there are usually no survivors, no matter how big or small the plane is. However, this time, earlier this year, it was different.

When the small plane crashed to the ground in the US state of Kentucky, a girl named Sailor Gutzler survived. This brave little child walked barefoot for more than 1.6 km (almost a mile), and she knocked on the Larry Wilkins door. In the crash, she lost both of her parents, sister, and older cousin, and she walked away from the scene, searching for help.

The McComb family is not giving up hope.

Laura and Jonathan McComb and their two children were at a cabin in Wimberley, Texas, on Saturday night when the skies opened, dumping record-breaking rains. Water soon swept the house downstream. Jonathan McComb was found, but the whereabouts of his wife and children remain a mystery.

"We never lose hope," said his father, Joe McComb. "But I think reality is setting in that there is probably a good chance that it might not be the outcome we're hoping for. But you never give up hope."

He said he suspects a loose tree fell and knocked his family's cabin off its pilings, eventually causing it to be swept downriver.

"I don't know how many m

(CNN)Sometimes, life takes twists so fortuitous that they seem inevitably predetermined. That may be the case for Maya Gurung, a 10-year-old girl suffering in post-earthquake Nepal.

I met Maya in Kathmandu earlier this month and told her story on CNN.com. She lost her lower left leg in the April 25 quake and suddenly, her already hardscrabble life became that much harder. She was a poor girl living on unforgiving Himalayan terrain. Without a limb, her life took an ominous turn.

Maya and her father, Bhim Bahadur Gurung, had held high hopes that the doctors who treated her at a Kathmandu hospital would fit her for a prosthetic leg. But the hospital was overwhelmed after the earthquake. M
