The filmer told the story online: "Me and my friends had been for a trek to Chandragutti hills ... then we heard whimpering of a dog. We followed the direction of sound and saw an undiscovered deep well at the top of the hill, and there was the bleeding dog in the water, which was vainly trying to come out." "We searched for a rope kind of stuff to pull out the dog [but] failed to find any as it was uninhabited area," he continued. "We traced a creeper which was thick and pulled out, thinking it would help us. As in video, we tried our best to bring the dog out of the well [and] could bring it out after few attempts.

Two young girls blow everyone away with unselfish act1m30s

Two young girls blow everyone away with unselfish act

McKennah and Arial are students at the Bobcaygeon Public School. McKennah is 9 and Arial is 6 and both have hearts of gold. They are about to take part in an amazing act of selflessness and generosity. Pedal for Hope has come to their school as part of a yearly cycling tour that raises money for pediatric cancer research. Officers pedal for 3 weeks on their holiday time and visit up to 50 schools, involving the kids in one of Canada's biggest fundraisers for pediatric cancer research. They deliver serious messages about healthy living, anti-bullying, cancer prevention and community involvement. They also engage in a lot of fun and silliness, with frozen yogurt eating contests and hilarious skits to deliver cancer prevention tips. The students do the hard work and deserve full credit for the success of this tour which will cross the 5 million dollar mark in this, its 14th year. The cops were blown away by the sacrifice made by these two young girls. For many weeks, they collected pledges from friends, family, and neighbors, with McKennah being the school's top fundraiser at over $2,400. Arial also raised a very impressive $1,100. Together, they raised more than one third of the school's total of $9,000. With a student population of roughly 250, this total is staggering. Students have fun events, fundraising activities, and shave their heads to collect pledges in order to raise money. In 14 years, Pedal for Hope, and the students who take part have raised 4.8 million dollars for the cause. Students team up with the cops and their communities and learn that one person can make a difference in the lives of others and that together, the impact is even greater. These two girls are making an incredible sacrifice by cutting their pony tails and donating their hair to make wigs for young cancer patients who have lost their hair as a result of chemotherapy. For a boy to shave his head for the cause is impressive enough, but for girls, the sacrifice is even more meaningful. It became quite emotional for the girls and for their mothers as the hair came off. Tears of pride flowed and were quickly followed by smiles as the crowd cheered the girls on. Both held their ponytails high for all to see before passing them to the officers. The girls received a hat that bears the Pedal for Hope logo as well at the Canadian Cancer Society logo. This hat cannot be bought or won. Only a person who has sacrificed their hair can proudly sport one of these. Officers will continue to ride until no parent has to hear those awful words: "Your child has cancer". None of this would be possible without kids like McKennah and Arial. They are true heroes.

The boy following the guy’s orders takes off the barnacles stuck on the turtle's shell, moving the knight lightly over its surface and makes sure the turtle’s head remains intacked. All set and cleaned, the turtle will be able to eat better. This is not something we recommend trying on your own. However, since the captain and guide has the right training and the right gear, they were able to save the turtle. Being very clean, the turtle can go on with its normal life. As the kids watch the turtle swim off and dive down, a sign that it is healthy, they are so proud of being a part of its rescue and learn a bit about conservation.

The birds migrate to Bulgaria in the Spring but the prolonged winter weather has caught them off guard and left many stranded and freezing to death. It has been extremely cold in the country recently and the winter cold has frozen the birds’ wings, preventing them from flying away and finding appropriate shelter.

Cops Team Up With Kids To Raise Money For Cancer Research

For the past thirteen years, police officers from the Peterborough Police Service, the Ontario Provincial Police, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and the Durham Regional Police Service have joined the Canadian Cancer Society to organize Pedal for Hope. Officers complete a bicycling tour of Peterborough and surrounding areas over a period of three weeks. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness and understanding for local children battling cancer, as well as raise funds to assist in finding a way to manage cancer through pediatric cancer research. Since 2005, the Pedal for Hope tour has raised over 5 million dollars in the Peterborough and Durham areas alone. One of the most amazing aspects of Pedal for Hope is the connection with the kids. Children who battle cancer provide the cops with inspiration and the kids are part of one of Canada's most successful teams. The kids in the schools also connect with police after seeing them in a very different light. Officers are approachable and downright silly and the impact on the children has to be seen to be believed. The kids are the driving force behind Pedal for Hope and it is their work that makes all of this possible. This year's Pedal for Hope cycling tour promises to be an even bigger success. Officers will again make stops along their tour at 50 participating schools. Assemblies will be held that feature presentations to students, head shaving (teachers and officers), education, and fun events. The tour itself begins April 23rd, 2018. More encouraging than the financial success is the rapport that has been built between officers and students. The enthusiasm shown by the students is nothing short of awe-inspiring. These students have organized fundraising events, shaved their heads and collected sponsors. As a result, students have learned that they are able to band together and make a significant difference in the lives of others. When cops, kids, and a great cause all come together, amazing things happen. If you would like to donate and help us help those who battle cancer, please visit www.pedalforhope.com

This Young Hockey Player Breaks Down In Tears During Sweet Locker Room Speech47s

This Young Hockey Player Breaks Down In Tears During Sweet Locker Room Speech

Youth sports are a wonderful way for kids to learn not just the rules of the game, but what it means to truly be a part of a team. Former NHL hockey player Bryan Berard was in the locker room when he witnessed a very special moment. His nephew, nine-year-old Brody Berard, is following in his uncle’s footsteps, playing hockey in their hometown of Woonsocket, Rhode Island. With Brody’s help, the Woonsocket North Stars had just defeated their opponents, the Capitals, in the final game of the season. Emotions were running high as the exhausted players sat in the locker room. Brody raised his hand and said he wanted to say a few words. What happens next will bring you to tears! The wise words spoken by this child come as surprising deep sentiments from such a young kid. “I just want to say that I had a great season with all of you and I just want to say that I love every single one of you like brothers,” Brody says tearfully. As he continues to talk, his voice cracks with emotion. As Brody tells his teammates how much they mean to him, he starts to openly cry. Soon, he’s got his head in his hands and is speaking through barely-contained sobs. It’s clear that he means every word he’s saying about how much he loves his team. “I love this team. I wish we could stay together. I’m just really happy that we beat the Capitals,” he continues. Then he starts to clap, and the rest of the team joins in. One boy comes over to give Brody a hug, and a man’s voice off-camera encourages everyone to get up and give the boy a much-needed pile-on, too. “Give him a hug, everybody. That’s what it’s all about, boys.”

Man Saves Distressed Dolphin Trapped In Heavy Seaweed

There is a multitude of clips in the world wide web where kind-hearted people have gone out of their way to rid a poor wildlife creature out of its misery. Whether it is a hedgehog all caked up in mud or a swan with a broken leg, humans have set their obligations aside to help a hapless creature live another day. Sure, most of us have seen the hedgehogs in our gardens and the swans in the park, but not many of us have been fortunate enough to come across a dolphin in the wild, let alone have the opportunity to rescue it from certain demise. A family out boating in Australia came across a dolphin that got caught up in some seaweed in a sandbar. The poor animal was whistling in distress, having been tangled up in the seaweed for who knows how long. Seeing how the animal is suffering, the man ties himself to a rope with the other end tied up to the boat and get in the chilly water next to the dolphin. Naturally, the poor thing is scared of the human, probably never having been so close to one before. But with a few gentle strokes on the back and dorsal fin, it is like the dolphin understands the man is only here to provide aid. Since the water is only up to just above the man’s knees, we can only imagine how hard it must be for the dolphin to get out of the shoal. The gentle human uses his left hand to push the seaweed away, as he guides the dolphin towards the deeper water. The dolphin still looks a bit confused after the first attempt and returns back to the shallow, but our hero does not give up. Instead, he guides the dolphin one more time, ultimately convincing the mammal which way is home.
