THE LIFE SAVING VAN MEN
Our first story of the week from Bucks Free Press is guaranteed to warm your heart. It’s the story of Jenny Allen, 80, and her 93 year old husband, and how two white van men came to their rescue when their car became trapped in a perilous situation. Read more about her mission to find them here.
THE LIFE CHANGING CALIFORNIA FARM
We fully love enterprises and initiatives that are helping people to change their lives or turn it around in some way. Which is why we love this long read on Modern Farmer this week about The Homeless Garden Project, a community garden project in California helping to change the lives of those who use and run it. See more of their incredible work here.
THE BOW TIES FOR FOUR LEGGED FRIENDS
Finally this week, on ABC News, the story of Sir Darius Brown, the New Jersey teenager who learnt to sew to help him with the fine motor skill delay he was born with, and is now using that talent to help rehome homeless cats and dogs by sewing bow ties for them. Take a look at his amazing creations here.
