Joining in for a nap

This cat really wants her dog friend to wake up. She nuzzles him and paws at him over and over — but the sleepy dog just won’t budge. Eventually, she gives up in the sweetest way. We can’t get enough of this cat’s adorable caresses.

Seeing colors for the first time

Their parents bought them special glasses to see color, and the reaction was more emotional than we could have imagined. Colorblind since birth, brothers Jace and Jimmy always guessed what colors were in front of them. But with these special new Enchroma glasses, for the first time, color became something they could see — and they couldn’t hide such an incredible moment. Emotions overwhelmed the entire family as the world became a more beautiful, colorful place for these two young men.

Asking for a better birthday present

This kid has sole.

For the third year in a row, Gunner Robinson of Wilmington, North Carolina, has asked for shoe donations instead of presents for his birthday on August 15. Each pair goes to a kid in his community who needs shoes for the upcoming school year, according to WWAY.

So far, the 10-year-old has given out 600 pairs with his organization Gunner’s Runners.

“I’ve always got shoes, like new shoes for school, nice ones, and I want other kids to get them, too,” Gunner told the outlet.

Donation boxes have been set up around Wilmington, and once all the shoes have been collected after his eleventh birthday, the family will give them to a social worker who will distribute them to kids before school starts.

Being a father figure for those who need it

Evan Waddy-Farr is a Bronx-based youth minister. But more than just doing his job, he inspires teens and keeps them off the street and pursuing their futures. That’s no easy feat, but this father figure is so inspiring, he was celebrated for being a father to them—even though he has no kids. These youth let him know how much his work means to their everyday well-being by throwing a special event in his honor.

Epic kickball

Kickball is a fun game, but when you turn the entire kickball field into a slip ‘n’ slide course, with inflatable pools for bases, things get even better. That’s exactly what these friends did, using several inflatable pools for bases and a team of excited volunteers. You just might be inspired to try it at home on the next sweltering day.

Awesome!
