Australian Finds Homes for Abandoned Pet Rabbits 🐰

In Australia, a woman has set up a bunny rescue and fostering network from home. Kelly Purtill’s passion began after adopting her pet rabbit, who had been neglected. She found that people often didn’t realize the level of care and commitment that rabbits require. This has led to many being abandoned or confiscated following animal welfare inspections. That’s where her initiative comes in. With the help of friends, they take in abandoned and surrendered rabbits, placing them in loving foster homes before they find their forever families.

Mother Fosters 189 Children Across 40 Years and Counting 🏠

In South Carolina, USA, a mother was left feeling isolated when her five grown-up children began moving out in 1983. Hannah Ford, or ‘Miss Hannah’ had retired and had lost her husband two decades prior. With a quiet home, her friend suggested she look into fostering. She did and she never looked back. Since that time, she has fostered 189 children over the last 40 years and also adopted seven of the children. Now aged 86, she has no plans of stopping soon.

Teacher Raises Funds for 4-Year-Old Student And Blind Grandmother 👩🏽‍🏫

A blind grandmother tearfully asked her grandaughter’s teacher, Ms Patcharini, if she could advance 180 baht for the 4-year-old’s accident insurance. She promised to pay her back, upon receiving monthly elderly allowance. Ms Patcharini agreed, and then asked to visit their home. Here, she learnt that the kindergartener would take care of household chores, such as dishwashing, laundry and cooking rice to help her grandmother. She asked if she could share their story on social media, which resulted in generous donations from the community, totaling 5.9 million baht ($165,000).
