99 year old woman makes new dress each and every day for a child who needs it

99 years old and doing the world an amazing service — how's that latte you stood an hour in line for this morning? Worth it?

Lillian Weber from Iowa has made over 840 dresses - from scratch - for a Christian nonprofit group called Little Dresses for Africa, which "provides relief to the children of Africa."

Lillian has made a DRESS A DAY for a young girl in Africa, and she admits that she enjoys doing the charitable work so much that she wakes up everyday looking forward to her day. Something that is NOT a given at 99-years-old!

Even though she came in last place during her event, Ida Keeling is quite possibly the biggest winner from this year’s Gay Games!

The event is organized by and for LGBT individuals but not all who compete are gay. The 99-year-old great-grandmother participated in the 100-meter race and clocked in a time of 59.8 seconds! It’s believed that no other woman has ever recorded a faster time for her age group! Which isn't too shabby for a woman who started running when she was already 67!

The native New Yorker traveled to Akron, OH, this week with her daughter, Shelley, so that she could show the world that ANYTHING is possible if you believe in yourself!

She promised her parents on both of their deathbeds that she would never stop searching for her brother, Owen Smith.

And even at 85-years-old, Ovell Krell never gave up hope that she would one day locate her long-lost sibling. 74 years after she last saw Owen, Ovell finally located her brother. But this sad story unfortunately doesn’t have a happy ending.

No one in her family had seen him since he was sent to the Florida School for Boys as part of his punishment for stealing a car in 1940. Owen was only 14. Here's the crazy story.

Someone Very Close To Angelina Jolie’s Heart Has Passed Away…

So sad!

We first introduced you to Louis Zamperini last year. His inspirational true-life story is being turned into a movie, thanks to Angelina Jolie who is directing and producing the project!

But this week, the 97-year-old passed away after a 40-day battle with pneumonia.

Angie and Louis became very close after she heard his harrowing tale of survival. Zamperini, a former Olympian, spent 47 days lost at sea during World War II. He was then captured by the Japanese and spent 2 years in a POW camp!

If that’s not an AH-Mazing movie plot, we don’t know what is!

Before he died, Louis spoke about his famous friend, calling Miz Jolie:

“A human dynamo!”

He also said he was certain that she would tell his story the right way.

The Zamperini family issued their own statement after losing Louis, which read:

"Having overcome insurmountable odds at every turn in his life, Olympic runner and World War II hero Louis Zamperini has never broken down from a challenge. He recently faced the greatest challenge of his life with a life-threatening case of pneumonia. After a 40-day long battle for his life, he peacefully passed away in the presence of his entire family, leaving behind a legacy that has touched so many lives. His indomitable courage and fighting spirit were never more apparent than in these last days.”

Unbroken, the film based on Louis’s incredible life, is due in theaters on Christmas Day. You better believe we’re gonna see it!

Rest in peace, Louis!
