* Metropolitan Opera general manager Rudolf Bing was politely informed that ballerina Janet Collins would not be welcome at a cast party held for the touring company in a certain exclusive club in Washington, D.C. Bing sent word that he would not be attending either, and threw his own party. When the company toured in the South, Bing got similar flak about Leontyne Price, and took her to fancy restaurants just to piss people off. Bing had escaped Nazi Germany and despised the idea of racial superiority.

* When Hurricane Gustav threatened Texas in 2008, the [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama Obama campaign]] essentially said, "Hey, we'll get our donors to donate to the Red Cross. You might want to ramp up your servers, our guys can be a little intense." "Sure," thought the Red Cross, "we've been through Katrina, 9/11, we can handle it." The surge of Obama dollars ''crashed the Red Cross website in under ten minutes.''

** To clarify, a 20-year-old white former student named Michael Hill went onto the grounds of Ronald E. [=McNair=] Discovery Learning Academy armed with an assault rifle and 500 rounds of ammunition. After exchanging shots with police, Hill took Antoinette Tuff hostage... Then she started talking to him, asking him his name, telling him about her failed marriage, telling him she loved him, and empathizing with him to the point where ''she convinced him to set his weapons down and turn himself in peacefully.''

** 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 ''TheBigBangTheory'' (in terms of geekiness, anyhow).

* [[http://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com/tumblr_lr41ffw0jr1qhxie4o1_r1_1280.jpg This]] 4chan post. An anon goes into [=GameStop=] to trade in his PS2 Slim, and sees a little boy whose family is too poor to buy the game he wants, and makes the boy's Christmas brighter instead of getting a new Xbox game.

* For their Holiday 2015 promotional campaign, ''TabletopGame/CardsAgainstHumanity'' gave the employees of the Chinese factories that make their products [[http://www.cardsagainsthumanity.com/china/ a week of paid vacation]]. Since no procedures for doing this existed, they paid the factory to make absolutely nothing for one week.

* Another furry example: Midwest Fur Fest 2015 in Chicago selected as its charity an animal rescue organization that cares for former police and military dogs. At the closing ceremonies, it was announced that con-goers (about 1300 or 1400 in total) had raised '''nearly $60,000''' for the charity. Cue con-goers rushing to the foot of the stage to give enough to make it an even sixty (and in the end they exceeded it!).

* 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.
