Annmarie Richards operates on unconditional love.

This became clear to Joel Robbins, Matthew Butler and Jenny Ljung when the trio was out to a business dinner with her in Aruba in February 2013. Richards, 54, is a salesperson for Unicity International, a company that sells products that "improve overall physical health and wellness," according to its website. But she only does this on the side for a supplemental income.

Her full-time job is "Mom." And she has 32 children to look after.

"When Jenny asked her how many kids she had and she said that, we all thought, 'What? What do you mean?'" Robbins, 28, who produced the short film above, told The Huffington Post. Together, he, Butler

An abandoned dog who's had the courage to love again is teaching us about the power of forgiveness.

In the video above, captured by Annie Hart, Gideon the pit bull undergoes a tremendous transformation after being rescued from starvation and sickness.

Hart, the executive director of animal rescue group Bill Foundation, told The Huffington Post in an email that Gideon, who was found with a registered microchip, had been in terrible shape when she went to rescue him in December. The pooch, who had deep lacerations around his neck, was starving and suffering from multiple bacterial and highly contagious fungal infections.

He was in "major pain," Hart said, adding that Gideon was "by fa

South African Girda McKenna asked her friends for just one thing after she was diagnosed with cancer. She wanted them to sit together for a photograph.

The portrait turned into something much more, and blessed her with a memory of true friendship. Luckily, photographer Albert Bredenhann documented the magical journey as all eleven ladies decide to shave their heads in solidarity.

"That is the least I can do," one woman said before a stylist took an electric shaver to her blonde locks. "If I can do just a little for her to feel better, I will do it with love."

"I am giving up my pride for a friend that is going through much, much more," explained another. When Girda walked onto t

Fashon designer and long time girlfriend of singer Mick Jagger, 49-year-old L'Wren Scott, was found dead in New York City Monday morning.

Police confirm that a 49-year-old woman was found dead at her apartment in West Chelsea, but would not confirm the name pending contact with family.

Although the medical examiner has not confirmed the cause of death, police said the death appeared to be a suicide.

A law enforcement official told the AP that Scott's assistant found her hanging from a doorknob. No note was found and there was no sign of foul play.

The BBC reports, in a statement from Jagger's spokesperson, that the Rolling Stone front man was "completely shocked and devastated" b

A dog that got stuck on cliff high above Portugese Beach in Sonoma County, Calif. was rescued Saturday afternoon after a sheriff’s deputy dangling from a helicopter plucked it off a sheer rock face and returned it unharmed to its owner.

The black and white Labrador named Oreo somehow made her way about 40 feet down a 90-foot high cliff, where there was no way of return.

Pilot Paul Bradley flew the chopper low over the cliff a couple times to make sure Oreo wouldn’t be spooked by the sight. She was fine. So Bradley landed nearby, and Deputy Henri Boustany strapped himself onto the end of a 100-foot long line.

It was decided that Boustany would bring a towel with him to throw over the

I enjoy my decaf espresso in the morning. I love my wine in the evening. And, I adore all manner of cheese at any time, day or night. But I'm giving up all these -- plus wheat, sugar, and red meat -- to give my body a much needed cleansing.

For the first time I am willing to go without my culinary loves (or addictive habits, if you prefer) because I found a program that seemed doable, and I really wanted some extra energy in the final weeks of my website redesign project for the Good News Network. Plus, it's spring, a great time to think about detoxing the body.

When my friend in Montana, who'd just started a two-week cleanse, listed the foods and snacks that were acceptable to consume

Colorado has a large population of homeless people. If you're driving in the metro area, you will probably see a homeless man or woman on the corner of nearly every block.

My sister drives the same route home every day, getting off the 1-25 highway and exiting onto Colorado Blvd., a large street with about four lanes of traffic on each side of the median. Everyday she passes the same man, who stands on the corner of Colorado Blvd., asking for spare change or a chance at a job.

One day in particular she was pulled up next to the man, when he began doing something out of the ordinary. He began jogging down Colorado Blvd. Next thing she knew, he had thrown down his sign and started sprint

South African woman Gerdi McKenna was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago, and her friends decided to do something amazing to display their love and support.

In February, McKenna's friends sent an email to Caring Daises, a local charity, in hopes of planning a photo shoot for McKenna, who was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months earlier, Jacaranda FM reported. They planned to surprise McKenna by shaving their heads in a sign of solidarity and photographing the process.

The organization was able to get photographer Albert Bredenhann to help capture the moment. He shared the heartwarming event in a Vimeo video, titled "Anything for Love."

"My heart is full and I am doing it fo

An elderly Los Angeles couple who could no longer afford to care for their ailing pet delivered the dachshund to the doorstep of an animal shelter with a heartbreaking note.

"We are both seniors, sick with no money. We cannot pay for vet bills or to put him to sleep. He has never been away from us in all these years, he cannot function without us. Please put him to sleep."

Now they are glad they chose that doorstep.

The shelter workers were so moved by the plight of the family that they decided they had to find someone to donate free medical care for little Otto and reunite the couple with their beloved dog.

I’m willing to go out on a limb here and guess that most stories of kindness do not begin with drug addicted celebrity bad boys.

Mine does.

His name is Robert Downey Jr.

You’ve probably heard of him. You may or may not be a fan, but I am, and I was in the early 90’s when this story takes place.

It was at a garden party for the ACLU of Southern California. My stepmother was the executive director, which is why I was in attendance without having to pay the $150 fee. It’s not that I don’t support the ACLU, it’s that I was barely twenty and had no money to speak of.

I was escorting my grandmother. There isn’t enough room in this essay to explain to you everything she was, I would
