6-Year-Old Girl Throws Birthday Party for the Homeless

For her sixth birthday, a kindergartner from Chicago, Illinois decided to throw a party for the homeless, instead – and her kindhearted gesture has sparked the community to also help out!

According to her proud parents, Armani Crews had been begging them for months to throw a party for the homeless people in their community. Thinking the child wasn’t serious about it, her parents didn’t think much about until the date of her birthday was near.

When Armani insisted that her parents should use the money for her birthday for a party with the homeless, they realized she was serious. So, her mom Artesha Crews told the girl she will make some sandwiches.

Much to her mom’s surprise, Armani insisted, “No. I want the same thing we’d have at my birthday party!” When told that she wouldn’t likely get a birthday gift from her friends if she does that, Armani shrugged and said she still wants to throw the party with the homeless.

So, dad Antoine Crews and mom Artesha prepared chicken, fish, spaghetti, mashed potatoes, corn, cake, cookies, and rolls for the party.

When their church members heard of the plan, they also decided to pitch in and give care packages for Armani to give as party bags for her homeless guests. Each care package contains soap, toothpaste, deodorant, toothbrush, hand sanitizer, and a granola bar.

The family and some of the church members distributed the gifts to the homeless people in city’s East Garfield Park neighborhood.

Later, when asked how she felt about her party, Armani said, “It was nice to be nice.

Caught On Cam: House That Was Once Used As A Hospital Has Uninvited Guests

It’s easy to say that there is a ghost or something paranormal in your home. Sometimes when you feel something, or you “know” that there is something in your house, no one will believe you even if you told them.

Some ghosts are caught in CCTV cameras like this one who smashed a glass door or this poltergeist who has been terrorizing a school corridor, which was caught on camera twice.

On the other hand, some ghosts also show themselves on casual photos and videos. It is still unknown how ghosts are able to show themselves in photos and videos.

This is why a lot of people are setting up cameras to capture what it is that has been bothering them.

In Kent, an eerie moment was caught in that camera that was originally set up to watch over the family’s two French bulldogs.

The house in which the ghost was caught was a Grade II listed building that was once used as a hospital. The family who is living there is now convinced that their house was haunted and that they are sharing it with uninvited guests.

While the family was sleeping, the camera caught a misty figure that came through the door at the back. The owner was wondering what it was because the door where it came from was a private garden.

“Being a skeptic I was thinking of what else it could be but our living room backs onto a private garden so there was very little it could be.”

It appeared to glide from the door to the adjacent room, away from the camera’s view.

But only to return from the bottom of the screen to glide around the living room again.

The family shared that there were also times that one of their dogs would growl without apparent reason.

“On the run-up to the footage our youngest dog kept staring into our hallway and on a couple of occasions growled but we just dismissed this and thought he was still settling in.”

The owner of the house, Stephen Lee, did not believe at first, but after having a couple of eerie things happen after they discovered the video, he is now ready to accept that it could be something supernatural.

“Since the footage we’ve had a couple of eerie things happen – especially since we’ve put up the Christmas tree where lights have flickered on and off consecutively.”

A hardworking man who went to a World Balance outlet at a mall to buy shoes from his savings received much-needed help from a kind-hearted customer who realized he should be rewarded for his efforts.

In a post that has since gone viral on Facebook, a store associate at World Balance shared the heartwarming story.

According to Caloy Pineda, the man who was later identified as Kuya Rexel, entered their store and began choosing from the shoes on sale. He didn’t look rich but the store associates readily assisted him, anyway.

Caloy described him as an obviously hardworking man who seemed really excited to finally buy a pair of new shoes from his hard-earned money. Finally, Kuya Rexel settled for a pair worth Php1,200 ($23.80).

While the staff prepared the shoes he chose, he took out his money and began to count it on the bench. He had a bunch of money, all Php20 bills ($0.40). It was obvious that the money came from his savings as many were still folded up.

It was at this point that another customer, a woman who goes by the name Lilliam Matteo Quiat on Facebook, went closer and began asking Kuya Rexel random questions like where he was working. She praised him for being hardworking and offered to give him some cash so he could choose another pair that he would really like to have.

Kuya Rexel was hesitant as he didn’t want to take her money but she insisted. After some coaxing, Kuya Rexel finally chose another pair he was eyeing; it costs Php1,799 ($35.65). The woman gave the store associates Php500 ($9.90) and went away without telling them her name.

But according to Caloy, he was able to take some photos and got her name because she reserved a pair of shoes at the store. She would have remained anonymous and certainly didn’t give the money for praise but she was later happy to hear that the story became an inspiration to many after it went viral.

Hayati was quickly rushed to the hospital where she underwent an emergency surgery in order to stop her bleeding.

Although she is still in the ICU, World of Buzz, it is lucky that she survived the incident and nothing more tragic happened to the girl from South China who decided to take a selfie with an upcoming train who seconds later, eventually killed her on the stop.

The girls managed to take photos of the incident, one while Hayati was still upright and another one where she was already down and have probably already hit her head.
