* Back in 2016, Marc Carter of Devon, England, sparked a global search for a light blue (officially, the color is "pearlized green") two-handled Tommee Tippee cup for his autistic son, Ben, then 13, who since age 2 has never drunk out of anything else. Literally. He uses it for medicinal drinks as well as ordinary beverages. He once lost it at school and was hospitalized with dehydration. The cup was starting to fall apart, but the company who originally made the cup was out of business. Marc started tweeting photos with the tag [=#CupForBen=], and created a Youtube channel, [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDtU7kYG78GQW0Ug_zuOUYw Little Blue Cup]]. Soon tons of people sent cups that resembled the original, but Ben wouldn't take them because they weren't enough like his cup (only the UK market had ever had that style cup in the Pearlized Green color). He and Marc were at a loss -- until out of nowhere the company, Tommee Tippee, found out about the search. They actually ''reopened the factory'' -- it's in Dongguan, China -- and ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuwBQUwyW3k found the mould for the original cup]]''. No leftover sample in the exact color was found, -- but the manufacturing tools were! To get the color exactly right, they made several and sent them to Ben so he could choose the right shade. Did they then make him one? Not even close -- they made ''five hundred cups'' for Ben! ''Free of charge, for life''. To say Ben was happy is an understatement. And if you're autistic reading this, you know the feeling.[[note]]Some of the cups sent were acceptable enough that Ben could use them as "transition" items when he did get the right cups. Autistic facilitators take note.[[/note]] Marc is now trying to crowdfund a documentary film about Ben and his cup, and the website [[http://www.littlebluecup.org Little Blue Cup]] has now taken to publicizing searches for particular items for other autistic people.

* The music festival Woodstock had its own: The band Music/CreedenceClearwaterRevival was booked at a rather poor time (1:00 AM in the morning) where pretty much everyone was asleep. The band thought about leaving the stage since no one would really listen to them, until they saw a lone light made by a lighter in the distance. They stayed and played their entire set just for that one light. Peace and love, man.

* 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.

* It's fair to say that England and France have a turbulent history, what with countless wars, mutual invasions, and unbridled piss-taking over the centuries, a rivalry that extends onto the football pitch. However, when England were scheduled to play France in a friendly mere days after the Bataclan Attack in 2015, arriving French fans and players found Wembley, historic home of English football, lit up in the colours of the French Tricolore. Then followed a minute's silence, which was impeccably observed, and finally, with the aid of the words on the big screen, the English fans joined their French counterparts in singing the French national anthem. And when French midfielder, Lassana Diarra, whose cousin had been killed in the attack, was substituted onto the pitch, he received a universal round of applause from the entire stadium.
** Two years later, Britain was hit by two attacks in less than two weeks, the Manchester Bombing and the London Bridge attack, themselves less than three months after the Westminster Attack. England and France played another friendly, this time in the Stade de France in Paris, and this time, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming the French fans joined their English counterparts to sing God Save the Queen.]]

** Also, after 'Don't Look Back In Anger' became the unofficial anthem of the response to the Manchester Bombing, Noel Gallagher donated all the sales to the We Love Manchester fund.

* During the 1847 Great Potato Famine in Ireland, a group of Native Americans, the Choctaws, collected $710 and sent it to help starving Irish. It's a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming not only because Choctaws were on the other side of the world, but they had to face the Trail of Tears, a forced relocation by the USA governement in 1831. They were obliged to leave their fertile lands and goods behind, many of them died during the travel, and the community relocated in Oklahoma was very poor, so that money was really something.
** 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.
