I walked into work this morning to punch in and there was a housekeeper heading out the door to toss some trash. She was not wearing a coat, I told her I would take the trash out, as I walk right past the bins to get to the wing where my office is. The look on her face was priceless. Obviously no-one, especially a nurse, had ever helped her out.

George Takei posted this on Facebook. The guy is visiting sick children in hospitals. I think it's very cool.

Margi, that is a truly awesome RAOK! People sometimes don't realize that feeding the homeless doesn't just stop at other people.

I remember when I worked in downtown Vancouver there was this really ragged looking homeless man who used to sit in front of my bank. He would play the harmonica for coins in a tin can which was beside a small bowl. He had this equally bedraggled mutt who would sit beside him. His sign read "can you spare some change for me and kibble for my dog". About once a week (or more if I could) I would buy him a burger from Burger King across the street and bring a paper lunch bag full of dog food. But as I would leave I would look back to see him give half the burger and fries to his best friend. That's the reason I kept doing it!

This guy was pulled over by the cops on the way to the hospital because his license plate was just the batman symbol. Thankfully the cops that pulled him over were intelligent enough to make an exception and let him go on his way.
