Grandma Spends Thanksgiving With Stranger She Accidentally Texted Is Definition Of Heartwarming

This is the kind of Thanksgiving tale that warms the heart. It was just around this time last year when this grandma mistakenly texted a Thanksgiving dinner invitation to the wrong number. Let's just say the complete strangers handled the ensuing situation perfectly. Oh, and before anyone goes getting all upset: Grandma definitely changed her number after the conversation went viral last year! 

Grandma accidentally texts a dinner invitation to the wrong number, and the meetup that ensues will warm your heart.

Aussie Grandfather Posts an ad for a 'Fishing Mate' and the World's Reaction is Heartwarming.

This widowed Aussie old timer got more than he bargained for, in the best way possible, when he posted an ad to a local website looking for a new 'fishing mate'. 

The internet got a hold of his ad and recirculated it on sites like twitter and imgur, and before long he had been flooded with support and offers to go fishing.

Someone even went and started a gofundme for the old bloke to send him on a fishing trip.

From the description:


"We're just a couple of guys who have heard Rays story and want to see him have a good fishing trip.
At the moment the cost is to cover his return flight from Adelaide to Sydney and back home, accommodation, food expenses and any costs associated to get him fishing. Anything left will go to Ray himself or a charity if he chooses as such.
Should we raise above the required limit we can look at sending Ray around the country to fish with a few different people."

It's always nice to see people rally behind a good cause

Chris Pratt and Ryan Reynolds Continue to Show Us They're a Couple Real Life Superheroes

Honestly torn over who we love more at this point...Ryan Reynolds or Chris Pratt. Both of these guys are real life superheroes, and continue to display an incredible ability to balance the demands of being A-list celebrities, with touching the lives of fans who fell upon hard times, and bad luck. Yesterday we ran a post on Ryan Reynolds who shared a heartwarming tribute to his 14 year old fan (and friend) that'd lost his battle with cancer; and today we've got Star Lord. Love these guys!

On Sunday at 3 in the morning Mark Ross was notified that his sister, Eliza Fletcher (15 years old) had been killed in a car crash. Inside Edition reports that Trooper J. Davis ended up pulling their car over for speeding over 100mph; and that when Davis determined that Ross had an outstanding warrant and that his license had been suspended, he ended up towing their car.

Fast forward a bit, and Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant David Robinson showed up and saved the day!



Ross also went on to share some texts he'd exchanged with his sister mere weeks ago. May she rest in peace.

Much of the Pokémon GO coverage thus far has been centered on whether or not Niantic's finally going to get it's sh*t together with server issues, if Articuno is actually legit in-game, and a steady procession of people making stupid mistakes/hurting themselves cause they were caught up in trying to catch their 170th Magikarp.

But today, today we've got a quick little heartwarming Pokémon GO story for you: 

Arizona resident Angie Swartout and her autistic son, Ty, were busy enjoying playing Pokémon GO together when they were approached by two male Arizona State University students in Tempe Beach Park, who sprayed the two with BBQ sauce and then yelled, '“Yeah, we got the [r-word]!”

After the terrible incident, Angie Swartout's daughter took to the Pokémon GO Facebook page to ask others to unite and take a stand against such immoral behavior.

“If you see something like this happen, please don’t stand idly by. Even if you can’t do anything about the people that did it, help the family. My poor mother had to wash her and my brother off with a bottle of water. She was humiliated. And for what??? She had no reason to be humiliated, but those 2 ASU students certainly need to be embarrassed by their behavior today.”

This post inspired a wealth of hugs and gifts from compassionate neighbors in the Tempe area. Angie Swartout told ABC15:

“I’m so grateful. I’m just so grateful because if this wouldn’t have happened, we would still be hiding in our house like a lot of families like ours do. And I just can’t thank everyone enough.”

Alexander Steinberg, an 18-year-old aspiring filmmaker managed to put together a video that encourages us all as an audience to take a minute, and ask ourselves, 'why does Pokémon GO! matter?'

Does it really? Or is there something more meaningful, impactful 'afoot? Is it the game's ability to unite strangers that'd otherwise never cross paths? One quote captured in the video sticks out in particular:

“You know my favorite part about this? Number one my brother and I used to play this as kids. He ends up passing away,” CrobinMaxxis said, pointing up. “He’s up there still, still, having a better fuckin’ collection than I do. But all the violence in the world, brutality, all this fucking racism. Look around here. You see this?” he said, gesturing to the crowd. “Not a single one is the same. Everyone is having a good time. This is what the world needs now.”
