When the monsoon rains swept through Mumbai, a bystander snapped a photo of this tenderhearted little girl. Amidst the torrential downpour, her kindness shows that even if you don't have much, you can use it to help someone who has even less.


Thoughtful Children 2) This 6-year-old sweetie chopped off her locks so the hair could be used to make wigs for kids with cancer



Charlie Tillotson is a 6 year old princess from Sidmouth, England. Charlie had never cut her hair and she did everything she could to protect her golden crown and glory. “She has always wanted to grow it as long as Rapunzel,” her father said.


But one day that all changed when Charlie saw a T.V. show about children fighting cancer. Charlie was desperate to chop off her prized locks for the Little Princess Trust, an organization that gives wigs to cancer fighting children.


Charlie cut 2 feet off of her hair to make another little girl with cancer a long-locked princess. Charlie wants to grow her hair back again, but not for herself, she wants to cut it off to give another child a big grin!

After lots of rain, a river near Noakhali, Bangladesh, became massively flooded. The currents were strong, so crossing the water was dangerous. Unfortunately, a little fawn didn't know that.


The little guy became quickly swept up in currents he couldn't navigate through. He was going to drown, but one passer by just wouldn't let that happen. Even for a little boy, the currents were dangerous. However, he put his safety aside to save an innocent baby. And God saw them both to safety!

Thoughtful Children 4) This precious boy saying a very special prayer with Santa

The photograph is of 4-year-old Prestyn. Prestyn is requesting something very special from God. And the young boy thought it might help having the Big Man in the Red Suit join in asking the Big Man Upstairs too. He's not asking God for anything for himself. No, this kindhearted boy is praying for a miracle for a little baby in Las Vegas he has never even met!


Prestyn is praying for 2-month-old Knox, who is currently on life support. For reasons that remain unknown, this perfectly healthy baby boy just stopped breathing. His father, Carl, went to check on Knox and found him unresponsive in his crib. The terrified dad was able to revive little Knox using CPR, and an ambulance rushed the baby boy to the hospital.


Once Prestyn learned of this little baby who was so in need of a miracle, his big heart took over and he did what he could to help — starting with adding Santa to the baby Knox prayer chain. Since then, the sweet boy has also been to Build-A-Bear Workshop where he made a stuffed wolf to send to Knox. Prestyn named him ‘Miracle.’

Noah Aldrich is only 8 years old, but he already knows how to love and care for others like Jesus would want.


6 years ago, his brother Lucas was born with a rare genetic condition that leaves him unable to talk, walk or feed himself. Noah thinks his brother is “perfect” just the way he is, and he doesn’t want him to miss out on anything!


That’s why when Noah completed a mini-triathlon in Idaho -- guess who was right there with him? That’s right, his brother Lucas!


Noah lovingly helped Lucas every step of the way. Noah pushed Lucas in a jogging stroller during the 1-mile run, and pulled it behind his bike for the 3-mile ride. For the 200-meter swim Noah strapped himself to a raft with Lucas safely on board.

This sweet little boy saw a bunny who just couldn't quite make it up. So, he didn't hesitate to hop in (hehe) and lend a hand! Of course, what he didn't realize what this was just a statue. But his eagerness to help should inspire us all to look for ways to come to the aide of those in need!

Ken always went out of his way to take care of the stray animals he came across around his neighborhood in the Philippines. He would feed them and give them love. He dreamed of starting a shelter to help the animals he befriended. But at only 8 years old, it seemed impossible.


But then, God made that dream come true! A photo of Ken with 3 strays went viral, and before he knew it, people from all over the world started donating money. With the help of his father, Ken started the Happy Animals Club, a non-profit no-kill animal shelter!

6-year-old Joshua was out enjoying breakfast with his mom at his favorite restaurant. While there, he noticed the restaurant manager stop at a table of police officers. The manager shook their hands to thank them for their service. And this inspired the little cutie to find his own way to say thank you!


When Joshua and his mom got up to leave the restaurant, the little boy marched over to the table where the officers were dining. The sweet boy asked if he could pray for their protection. His proud mama stood back, so as not to interfere. And her heart melted as her precious son concluded the prayer with, “And please help us all to live a good life. Amen.”
