    High-schoolers modified a Fisher-Price Power Wheels car to give mobility to a disabled two-year-old -- and he is now really mobile.

    Robert Smith, founder of the investment firm Vista Equity Partners, is going to pay off the student loans of 396 new graduates of Morehouse College. Wouldn't it be nice if other billionaires would follow his lead and do similar acts of kindness and generosity?

    In the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital commercials, Marlo Thomas implores us to "please make a donation to end childhood cancer." Here is a 12-year-old boy whose pig was auctioned for $15,000. The boy gave all the money to St. Jude. Marlo is proud of him. We all are.

    The Random Acts Of Kindness organization encourages schools nationwide to have an annual Kindness Week. This Vancouver, Washington boy decided his act of kindness would be to earn money to pay his fellow students' lunch debts. But shouldn't every week be a Kindness Week?

    This man estimated his baseball card collection to be worth as much as $50,000 – and he chose to make a little girl happy by donating it to her. That is worth a lot more.
