Dentist Gives Homeless Free Dental Care Every Friday
Every Friday night, dental technician Kevin Shanahan sets up his equipment outside the General Post Office in Dublin, Ireland. He uses his free time to fit the city’s homeless population for dentures and works for hours during the week to create them in his lab.
Shanahan says he works with around 20 people in each session. And while he fixes their teeth, other volunteers offer free haircuts and serve hot meals.
"When you look at someone with no teeth they've lost their confidence they've lost a bit of dignity," Shanahan says. "When you give someone teeth you give them a little bit of confidence and you'll find they'll smile more – so you're building a person from the inside out."

At 100, He’s Still Throwing Parties For Less Fortunate Folks
A 100-year-old Vermont resident has been throwing an annual holiday party for the less fortunate for 37 years now and this year was no different. Anthony Pomerleau hosted the event for over 450 folks this year and he covered the $13,000 cost himself.
But the centenarian says he doesn’t mind paying for it because he “was brought up the hard way” and wants to do something good with his money for those in need. “First of all, I’m 100 years old,” Pomerleau says. “Feels pretty good just to be here!”

Secret Santa Gives $10k To Dad With ALS
Christmas has come early for an Idaho family who received $10,000 from a Secret Santa to help with medical expenses. Wyatt Rees is battling ALS and his wife Mindy and their four children are incredibly grateful for this surprise gift from a total stranger.
Mindy cares for her husband full time and while they have a community of support, this extra money will go a long way toward Wyatt’s care. The family was surprised with the check from a kind-hearted anonymous stranger by a local news station who’s helping the Secret Santa give away $200,000 before Christmas to people in need.
