* Marc Carter, from Devon, England, has sparked a global search for a light blue Tommee Tippee cup for his 13-year-old son, Ben, who had severe autism and refused to drink out of anything else. The cup was starting to fall apart so the father wanted to find a new one because his son wouldn't drink from any other cup and the company who originally made the cup was out of business. Soon tons of people sent cups that looked like the Tommee Tippee cup, but Ben wouldn't take them because they didn't remind him of his cup, it seemed like he was at a lost before out of nowhere the company, Tommee Tippie found out about the search they actually reopened the factory and found the mould for the original cup. Did they make him one and send it to the family? Not even close, they made 500 cups for Ben meaning he'd have plenty for a long time. Best thing is, they didn't even have the mould saved, they actually did an extensive search and agreed to make 500 cups for one boy, free of charge. To say the father was happy is an understatement.

** To many autistics, this kind of thing is as significant as being addressed in one's native language.

** In the 19th century, poverty-stricken Irish immigrants looking for work often found their way to mining and railroad jobs near tribal settlements and reservations, where they were accepted and frequently intermarried and adopted. The Choctaw Nation is one of many tribes to welcome the Irish, whose traditions are strikingly similar and who were treated in much the same way as Native peoples by the British.

* In 2008 Southport, Merseyside, England, a young person sits talking to a homeless woman, who did ''not'' fit the CrazyHomelessPerson stereotype; she was 46 and he was 22 (at the time). He wasn't a social worker, though; just a guy getting some food and drink. As for the woman... well, she ''is'' still seen around Southport, not that we know her name.
** The same individual did this very same thing back in 2005, with people in a park by a local museum [[http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&ll=53.409449,-2.981758&spn=0.001634,0.005284&t=m&z=18&layer=c&cbll=53.409439,-2.98135&panoid=u5k1IYFTkGS8JL3JVFbnAQ&cbp=12,178.77,,0,0.73 here]]. Not for financial reward, or for publicity, but [[ThePowerOfFriendship to make friends with other social outcasts]] (we don't have WordOfGod, but it was believed he was [[InspirationallyDisabled different]] [[AmbiguousDisorder in some]] way [[UsefulNotes/AspergersSyndrome (but how isn't known)]], [[UnusualEuphemism for want of a better euphemism]]).
** Again, as of December 2012, he was doing it yet again, but only for a few minutes... and not for publicity. He doesn't work with the homeless either, but he does take the time to say hello, since homeless people can be lonely.
** Astonishingly, this individual has '''[[ProperlyParanoid no social media profiles]]''' and is a semi-regular contributor on radio stations in the UK, as far as we know. [[TheSpook But little else is actually known of him, other than he's nearly 30]] and somewhat a bit like a certain character in 'Series/TheBigBangTheory'' (in terms of geekiness, anyhow).

* The FNC pundit [[BillOReilly Bill O'Reilly]] is a divisive figure [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement to put it lightly]], but in [[http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/fnc/bill_oreilly_to_pay_court_costs_of_fallen_marines_father_156919.asp this story]] achieves both a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and the CrowningMomentOfAwesome. To explain, in 2010, the father of a fallen Marine in Iraq sued the infamous Westboro Baptist Church, a hategroup based out of Topeka, Kansas, whose activities include [[TooSoon picketing the funerals of those soldiers who die in service to the nation, spewing their hatred to the mourning friends and family]]. A father of a dead soldier had tried to stop WBC from protesting outside the funeral with a lawsuit. A judge ruled against said father and ordered him to pay WBC's legal fees, some 16,000 dollars that the dead Marine's family simply did not have. In response, O'Reilly immediately cut and signed a check for that same amount and gave it to the father.
