Little Ray of Sunshine

The last little while there has been a lot of sad and depressing things in the news so it has been hard to check the newspaper for good news stories.  The other day I found 2 good news stories and that made me happy to find these little rays of sunshine amidst all the dark clouds of sad news.

The first article is about a family with identical twin girls that both have down syndrome and now find out they both have cancer.  To make matters worse, the dad lost his job so now they are struggling to pay for all the medical bills.  They decided to ask for help through an online fundraiser. They were hoping to raise $1,000-$2,000 instead good samaritans all over the world helped them raise over $25,000.  That made me so happy to see total strangers willing to help out a struggling family.
