Mesut Ozil, of World Cup champion Germany, is still winning.

The midfielder announced on Facebook that instead of financing the surgeries of 11 sick Brazilian children, as he had originally promised, he was upping the figure to 23. That's one for every member of the German squad, he explained in a post on Facebook.

"This is my personal thank-you for the hospitality of the people of Brazil," he wrote.

In a YouTube video (below) posted in May for the BigShoe children's healthcare charity, Ozil announced his intentions to join the campaign. "I love children, they are important to me, and I want them to thrive," he said.

Ozil now has deeper pockets to help. As Yahoo pointed out, Ge

Michael Sulsona of Staten Island, New York, has not led an easy life. The former Marine lost both of his legs in the Vietnam War when he was 20 years old, according to WABC. Sulsona has since used a wheelchair.

Last Monday, his wheelchair broke in a Lowe's store in Staten Island, and he found himself in a desperate situation. In a letter to Staten Island Advance, Sulsona wrote that three compassionate employees, David, Marcus, and Souleyman, sprung into action and placed him in a separate chair while they worked on repairing the wheelchair.

"The actions of these three employees at Lowe's showed me there are some who still believe in stepping to the plate," the veteran wrote.

Police are studying surveillance footage to retrace the last steps of a 31-year-old North Carolina high school counselor who was murdered last month.

Maggie Daniels, 31, who was single and lived alone, was found dead in her apartment on June 28.
