There are still people out there around the world digging deep and fighting the tide of adversity.. Sticking up for the weak and defenseless, doing what's right, Sometimes they tread silently doing their good deeds and charity work while others are thrust into the media spotlight, Some acts are heroic but they don't run around wearing capes... People putting others first with little or no thought for themselves.... 

Any stories or tales of Good Deeds, Charity work, Justice being served, Bullies being beat down or any kind of decent acts of kindness or bravery need to be in here big or small... Pets and other animals included

I will start with this because I still remember it... The homeless man with nothing sharing the pizza he was given... A lot of good hearted people sometimes find themselves rock bottom but it does not stop them being kind hearted...

I saw this video on facebook of a man who saved some 600 kids from Nazi camps and than relocated all of them to new families. He had a diary in which he wrote about all the kids from their past families to the address of their new family. 

That mans grand children took that diary and arranged a reunion contacting each and every kid he saved, all of them now in their 50s 60s and the man was now in his 90s.

Think I know which clip you're on about. He had no idea who he was sitting around and they ended up surprising him.

Wow.. just shows what one person can do for the greater good... All the real saviors always seem to be very humble and fly quietly under the radar...  

Yes, an act of kindness does not need public recognition...

And at the same time makes sure the rotary blade doesn't hit the mountain otherwise they're fucked. 

Unreal skill and control.

I did enjoy this story this week as well... 

This bloke made a bad mistake thinking he could rob UFC Fighter Polyana Viana and got his arse handed to him on a plate... xD

”When he saw I saw him, he sat next to me,” Viana recounted. “He asked me the time, I said it, and I saw he wasn’t going to leave. So I already moved to put my cell phone in my waist. And then he said, ‘Give me the phone. Don’t try to react, because I’m armed.’ Then he put his hand over [a gun], but I realized it was too soft.”

”He was really close to me. So I thought, ‘If it’s a gun, he won’t have time to draw it.’ So I stood up. I threw two punches and a kick. He fell, then I caught him in a rear-naked choke. Then I sat him down in the same place we were before and said, ‘Now we’ll wait for the police.’”

 

 

 

 

I saw Dana White share that. Brilliant stuff. xD

The Pilot who along with his very calm and very capable crew used all their skill and experience to guide a plane down on the Hudson back on January 15th 2009 saving everyone from what could have been a terrible disaster.. All 155 of them survived the experience..

Ten years later, these are the things that stay with me: the professionalism of the crew and air traffic controllers, the cooperation of passengers, the bravery of the rescuers and first responders, and the enduring love of my family, and I celebrate them every day. #Flight1549

Anyways, as a major NBA fan, this was a lighter article that I just found inspirational.

Abdul-Jabbar puts four title rings up for auction

Hall of Fame center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has put four of his NBA championship rings up for auction.

Abdul-Jabbar has hundreds of items from his memorabilia collection available in the auction, being conducted by Goldin Auctions, with "much of the proceeds" going to his Skyhook Foundation charity to help benefit kids learn about science, technology, engineering and math.

Besides the 1980, 1985, 1987 and 1988 championship rings he earned as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, Abdul-Jabbar is auctioning off a game-used signed and inscribed basketball from his final game in 1989. He finished his legendary career with an NBA-record 38,387 points.

"When it comes to choosing between storing a championship ring or trophy in a room, or providing kids with an opportunity to change their lives, the choice is pretty simple. Sell it all," Abdul-Jabbar wrote on his blog about why he's auctioning off valuables from his sports history.

"Looking back on what I have done with my life, instead of gazing at the sparkle of jewels or gold plating celebrating something I did a long time ago, I'd rather look into the delighted face of a child holding their first caterpillar and think about what I might be doing for their future.

"That's a history that has no price."

Abdul-Jabbar, 71, wrote that he's "on a solid financial path" and is not selling the items due to money trouble.

Some of the championship rings start with a minimum bid of $60,000. Also available on the website are game-worn jerseys, uniforms, trophies and even various keys to cities that he received.

"Since my life is still happening and ever-evolving, I am less personally attached to those items than I am to my desire to create new history for myself -- and futures for others," Abdul-Jabbar said. "Much of the proceeds from my auction will go to support my charity, the Skyhook Foundation, whose mission is to 'give kids a shot that can't be blocked.'

"We do this by sending children from economically challenged schools to five days in the Angeles National Forest to experience the wonders of nature and learn the basics about science, technology, and engineering."

Abdul-Jabbar is a six-time NBA champion; he won his first ring as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks, followed by five with the Lakers.
