His name is Sam Griner and he’s just a normal 8-year-old kid. Except for one thing: his baby photo is very famous. Sam was just 11 months old when his mother took a picture of him clenching his fist on the beach and posted it online. The pic has later become a popular meme and Sam was nicknamed “Success Kid”.

Recently, Sam went viral again, and this time for a good cause. His father, Justin Griner, was urgently in need of a new kidney, but the family couldn’t afford the operation. Consequently, his mother Laney set up a GoFundMe page, asking for the $75 000 that would be needed for the treatment. The fund went viral, and they passed their goal within one week! Success kid used his power to save his dad. He (and the internet!) couldn’t be happier.

This Polish kitty has become famous for its loving nature. Rademenes, a little black cat, was brought to the shelter when it was only two months old, and in terrible shape. It had a serious respiratory infection, making the vets fear that it had to be put down. Before they could do so, Redemenes started to purr. Shelter workers realized that it wanted to live. The cat recovered and has gone on to help other animals coming out of surgery by cleaning them and cuddling them while they’re in pain.

An older woman verbally attacked the couple, accusing them of being ISIS supporters because the Muslim woman was wearing a hijab. Eden recorded the conversation and went on the defense telling the woman: “It’s got nothing to do with you. Have some respect, shut your mouth. If you’ve got nothing nice to say, then don’t say anything.” Faith in humanity has been restored!
