It is no secret that Canada gets cold in the winter, and for the homeless population this becomes very problematic. Eight-year-old Jada, wanted to do something about it.
With the help of her mom, Tara, she gathered winter coats from the community and spent her eighth birthday dressing street poles throughout Halifax, Nova Scotia with 7 of her friends. Each jacket had a tag that said “I am not lost! If you are stuck out in … Keep Reading!!!

Leaving an abusive situation can be extremely scary and difficult. Meathead Movers, based in California, are doing their part to help victims of domestic-abuse get out safely and are issuing a challenge to other business to help out as well.
Aaron and Evan Steed founded the company in 1997, while in high school. Their fee back then was what you’d expect from 2 high school kids – $20 and a pizza. Since then they have gone a bit more … Keep Reading!!!
Kids always joke about school feeling like prison but these kids took it to a whole new level. Two kindergartners created a genius master plot. The five-year-olds dug a tunnel under the fence days in advance. And they did it all with shovels from the sandbox. During a class walk they snuck over and made their great escape.
So what do 2 escape artists do on the outside? Walk 2 kilometres to a car dealership and try to buy … Keep Reading!!!
Gemma Colley learned the hard way that spray tans and breastfeeding don’t mix. She had a wedding to attend and decided to get a little spray on glow to feel her best.
I am not a bad mum who would ever intend on harming a child. Just a very forgetful one that happens to be going to a wedding at the weekend and doesn’t want to look like Casper the friendly ghost in a bright yellow dress.
After her tanning … Keep Reading!!!
Kids can have some unusual birthday theme requests but this one takes the cake. Grayson Dobra is a super fan of local personal injury lawyer Morris Bart. Whenever Bart’s ads come on TV Grayson stops what he is doing to watch.
His obsession is so great that his mom threw him a Morris Bart themed birthday party when he turned two, complete with cardboard cutout of the lawyer.
When Grayson’s mom contacted Bart’s firm to invite Bart to the party … Keep Reading!!!
Look out Broadway! 10-year-old Guillermo Gael Delgado Garcia completely crushes his version of “Cuban Pete”, a classic rumba song. Dancing poolside in Monterrey, Mexico he entertains swimmers, even getting a few to join in, while his uncle films the whole dance.
I hope this kid never loses his zest for life. I love his free-spirit.
I Love Lucy fans may remember “Cuban Pete” performed by “Lucy” and “Ricky” in the very first episode:
So much awesomeness in one … Keep Reading!!!
Pucker is a collaborative photo project by David Wile and April Maciborka that documents the always epic first taste of lemon for children. Most of us have had that camera ready just waiting to see what kind of reaction our own kids give to their first lemon. As the project shows, there’s such a range of reactions but not one is lacking in cuteness.
Admit it, if you haven’t already given that first taste of lemon you’re going to tonight.… Keep Reading!!!
Traditionally, playgrounds are for kids. I’m sure most of us have mused about needing adult playgrounds at one time or another. Good news! They exist!! Spain has been building them for a while now for their aging senior population, and now they are starting to pop up in the US as well.

A hospital in Seattle has found a way to integrate daycare and assisted-living into one facility. Their new “Intergenerational Learning Center” brought a preschool into Mount St. Vincent nursing home. Each day the 400 adults living in the center are welcome to join the kids in activities from music and dancing to story telling to just visiting and connecting.
This is amazing on so many levels. The children get more one on one attention than can be provided by daycare … Keep Reading!!!

Here’s another tear-jerker commercial. ( Those advertisers are getting pretty damn clever.)
Watch as these children are blindfolded and asked to pick out their mothers in a line-up using just touch and smell.
