If you need your faith in humanity to be restored, you've come to the right place!
Every now and then, a random act of kindness from a stranger can help make your day just a little bit better! But in some cases, an entire community will gather and rally just to make one person's day, week, month, or even year THAT much more special! Well here are some moments where communities came together and did everything they could to make some youngsters' dreams come true!
A.J.'s Clock Surprise
A.J. Greene is a very special 8-year-old boy with autism, and he absolutely LOVES clocks! So his mother decided to set up a Facebook page for his birthday and made a interesting request, asking anyone and everyone to donate clocks! The response was HUGE as more than 1,500 people joined the group, and A.J. ended up with a room full of clocks for his birthday!
Dax Locke Gets One Last Christmas
This is so heartbreakingly beautiful! Back in 2009, 2-year-old Dax Locke wasn't given too much time to live as he battled acute myeloid leukemia, so his parents decided to make the most of his final days and treat everyday like it was Christmas! They put up decorations all around the house and even opened presents in the morning! Well the their community caught wind of their story and decided to pitch in by also putting up lights and decorating the whole neighborhood, turning Washington, Illinois into a winter wonderland!
Colin Has MILLIONS Of Friends!
Little Colin has a hard time meeting people due to his disability known as sensory processing disorder, which is similar to autism. So when it came time to celebrate his 11th birthday, he said he didn't want to have a party because he had no friends! Well his mom decided to prove that was NOT the case by setting up a Facebook page called Colin's Friends, and more than 2 million people have joined it! Not only that, but his local hockey team, the Kalamazoo Wings decided to surprise him with a little pizza party and even made him an official member of the team for a day!
Indiana Teens With Autism Named Homecoming King & Queen!
18-year-olds Seth Knox and Kelsey Roeser both have autism, but that didn't keep either of them from attending their high school's homecoming dance! But if that wasn't special enough, their peers at Tri-West High School in Lizton, Indiana decided to show them some love by voting them Homecoming King and Queen, and they won by a landslide! In fact, Seth got 100% of the school's votes!
If you haven't already heard of Caine's Arcade, prepare to have your heart melted! The story first broke when a short documentary went viral about a little boy in Los Angeles who built his very own arcade with cardboard boxes and anything else he could find in his dad's shop! The only problem was he couldn't get ANY customers! Well when a local filmmaker heard about Caine's Arcade, he decided to surprise the little entrepreneur and had HUNDREDS of people show up to play his games! Based on the huge smile on his face, we think it's safe to say that made his day!
Batkid Saves The Day!
Cancer survivor Miles Scott had one fairly simple wish: To be Batman's trusty sidekick, Batkid, for just a day! But instead of just giving him a costume and having the Dark Knight pay a short visit, they decided to go all out and turn all of San Francisco in Gotham City for a day! Batkid spent the entire afternoon riding around the Batmobile, saving damsels in distress, and of course, thwarting the pesky Riddler! Just like that, a hero was born! But the legend didn't quite stop there, as Batkid is still enjoying his celebrity status, hanging out with Andrew Garfield (AKA Spider Man) and throwing out the first pitch at San Francisco Giants games! Talk about a real life superhero!
The would could stand to have a few more communities like this!
