#WATWB : Soup Bar offers Pay What You Can Meals

We are the world white badge

So much food is wasted, yet many people are hungry.  Jagger Gordon, a chef in Toronto, is turning these two problems into a blessing of abundance. He receives donations of food that would have been thrown away and makes nutritious soups for people who pay what they can. He has been helped by a program called, “Feed it Forward.” Using this model, we can feed everyone.

Helpers in Houston: When Disaster Brings Out the Best

Sunflower w address

The good news is that Texas has an abundance of helpers. I’ve been watching rescue videos and reading about the volunteers who jumped in to help the pros rescue people and animals from dangerously high water brought by Hurricane Harvey. What strikes me is that disasters can bring out the best in people.

The following article,”The Heroes of Hurricane Harvey,” contains several inspiring videos showing people doing good:

Thank you to all the rescue workers and volunteers for your dedication and courage!

I know my recent good news stories seem to be all about babies and animals. That’s what tugs at my heart lately.

This week Awesome Stories brings you dancing to freedom, tree communication, remarkable kids, and a legacy of reform.

Dancing to Freedom

This is a remarkable story of perseverance. Refugee Ahmad Joudeh uses dance to create messages of peace. He has persevered beyond what most of us can imagine. Dancing is taboo in his native country of Syria. He was beaten by his own father, locked in rooms, threatened, and ridiculed, and yet he persevered. After a reporter made a documentary about him, the Dutch National Balet reached out to him and helped him immigrate to join their dance company. Today he uses his freedom to share messages of peace, gratitude, and unity with his world-wide family.
