* In late 2011 (so close to Thanksgiving) Creator/DanGreen's wife [[DeathByChildbirth passed away after giving birth to twins]] leaving him to raise them alone.

* When filming ''Film/TombRaider'' in Cambodia, Creator/AngelinaJolie saw just how bad some people's lives were. This led her to donate large amounts of money to humanitarian efforts, go on missions to visit refugees, and adopt three children from third-world countries.

* Actor Colin Farrell was once in Toronto shooting a movie when a local radio station held a competition with a prize of $2,000 for anyone who could bring Farrell to the studio. Farrell heard about the competition, and found a homeless guy on the street and brought him into the studio to claim the prize. A few years later, Farrell was in Toronto again and found that the homeless guy (known as "Stress") was still on drugs and on the streets; he [[http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/20070913/farrell_toronto_070913/20070913?s_name=tiff2007_ads took him shopping]], bought him over $2,000 worth of clothes and household goods, gave him $830 to cover first and last months' rent on an apartment, and gave him a heartfelt talk about addiction counselling. [[http://gawker.com/5043924/colin-farrell-hero-of-the-homeless A year later, Stress is still sober and still off the streets.]]
* Nearing the end of ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' filming, the stuntwoman who played Arwen during the chase scene really loved the horse she had rode, but unfortunately, did not have the money to buy him and someone else wanted the horse as well. Viggo Mortensen (who plays Aragorn) heard about this and told her he would see if he could get it. When he bought the horse and gave it to her, she asked him how much it cost so that she could pay him back. But he gently refused and replied that he simply wanted to give him to her, knowing how much she loved the horse.

* One time when the band Coldplay came to Mexico, they went to one of the poorest communities out there, and with THEIR OWN HANDS helped for a while. They then provided money and other aid to them. Apparently, they came back some time later. Just out of the blue, they decided to help. We need more artists like that.

* Another ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' moment, written in the book ''Star Trek Memories'': Nichelle Nichols was in a car wreck on her way to the set, and later fainted on set from the anaesthetic. William Shatner promptly pulled rank and brought filming to a screeching halt so he could take her home before they resumed shooting.

* The white members of The Rat Pack once forced a hotel to desegregate by announcing that either they would allow Sammy Davis Jr. (and other black people) to stay there, or Sinatra and a number of other members of the Rat Pack would not only not stay there, they wouldn't perform there, either! The pressure applied by him and his fellow Rat Packers was instrumental in causing Las Vegas to become one of the first cities to fully desegregate.

* Recently Canada made a twitter feed called [[https://mobile.twitter.com/hashtag/TellAmericaItsGreat?src=hash #TellAmericaItsGreat]] where various Canadians cheered up the Americans. In return, the Americans made a twitter feed called [[https://mobile.twitter.com/hashtag/TellCanadaThankYou?src=hash #TellCanadaThankYou]] While they both like to jab at each other, there's no denying that there's a close brotherhood between the United States and Canada.

* On FaceBook, there is a humor page called "Awesome Shit My Drill Sergeant Said". Normally it's just crude military humor, but one day, [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/08/how-dan-founder-of-a-mili_n_2090026.html this update went up:]]

* A grandson in Omaha, Nebraska was worried about the safety of his grandmother over in Daytona Beach after Hurricane Matthew tore through. Since he couldn't get a hold of her normally, he went the extra mile - ordering a pizza at a nearby Papa John's with instructions for the delivery boy to call him up to make sure she was okay.

* There are a few notable examples by indie animator Creator/EmilyYoucis. Yeah. That same self-described disturbed individual who produced [[ labelnote:That series]]That being ''Alfred's Playhouse''. A horrific deconstruction of ''Series/PeeweesPlayhouse'', infamous in the internet undergroud, about a sexually abused pitbull who takes his revenge on the world by becoming its ruthless dictator.[[/labelnote]] Well, In 2015, there was an autistic fan of hers who enjoyed roleplaying her character. When Emily discovered him, she thought he was so cool that she tagged him in an official post for the Alfred Alfer movie so that she could share some of her fame with him. Now ''that'' deserves an award on its own.
** In addition, Emily is known to spotlight fan artists of hers on her Facebook page to thank them. She makes a lot of friends with average artists and does her best to appreciate them. For some of her fans who were going through some hard time of their own, she would draw them personalized art. In general, Emily does not care is fan art is "canon relative" or not. She encourages fans to use her work to follow their own dreams. Just as long as no one claim ownership of her character.
** In case you never knew, she works at the Phillies Stadium selling snacks (her nickname is Pistachio Girl) as her day job. One day on the job, while toting her snack tray a fly foul ball landed near her feet. After picking it up, she saw a couple young baseball fans wnd tossed it over to them. If you can find the footage, you can see it obviously made their day.
