Kindness — Hidden Camera Ad Warms Heart

Written by Brad Aronson 518 Shares

I absolutely loved this video.

It is a hidden camera ad, where a kid without a jacket is cold at a bus stop in Norway. The majority of passersby at the bus stopped took the time to help.

The point of the ad from SOS Children’s Villages Norway is to raise awareness of the children suffering in Syria. They ask, “Will you lend a hand?”

You can see the translation in English by clicking the “CC”. Personally, I liked it better without the translation.

When he was 4-years-old our son Jack loved to play superheroes.

One day we were playing, and he was dressed in his Spider Man outfit—a full body suit complete with muscles and mask. I was Batman wearing a cape and kid’s costume.

The dastardly situation I told Spider Man we were facing was that bad guys were trying to take our dinner…

Jack: “Don’t worry Daddy, I know what to do.”

[Jack ran to the kitchen, got a spatula and went in the corner.]

Me: “Jack, what are you doing?”

Jack: “I’m making pancakes for ...

My wife and I recently realized that we have a lot of stuff collecting dust. Instead of saving it in case we need it in 10 years, why not donate our stuff to people who need it now? We could clean our house and perform an act of kindness for other people.

In case you feel the same way, here is a list of where to donate clothes, furniture, toys, prom dresses, wedding gowns, DVDs, sporting equipment, musical instruments, eyeglasses, cell phones, computers, appliances, furniture, video games, cars and more:

Security Cameras Catch People Being Amazing

Written by Brad Aronson 752 Shares

A great way to spend one-and-a-half minutes (that’s what she said). Really, a great short video about a security camera catching heroic, funny and touching moments. Surprisingly, this is a Coke ad. I’m not sure how much soda it will sell, but the video was a great way for me to start the day.

This video previously contained a copyrighted audio track. Due to a claim by a copyright holder, the audio track has been muted.

Thank you veterans.

Too often I take for granted how lucky I am. Among other things, I’m lucky to have been born in this country, which gave me opportunities and freedoms that many people don’t enjoy. What I too often take for granted is only ours because of the many brave people who have served or currently serve in our military.

We can honor our veterans by appreciating our freedoms and by supporting our veterans and active military personnel.
