‘For each 100,000 views WestJet’s video receives, the airline has pledged to bring together one more Ronald McDonald House family — up to a total of five.’ Thanks Westjet! No wonder I only fly Westjet if I have a choice.

Disney – It Gets Better

Via Born this Way Blog on FB – who said :

The LGBTQ community have been the artists, imagineers, the dreamers, and the very backbone of Disney since its inception. This is beautiful!

If this doesn’t touch you – you probably don’t have a heart.

Darren Hayes, the out former front man of  the hugely successful band Savage Garden shares some very personal memories of his best Christmas ever.  I will admit I got teary eyed and watched it again with my mom which only made me cry more.  According to Wikipedia :

 He married (via a civil partnership) his boyfriend of two years, Richard Cullen, on 19 June 2006 in London.[14][15] Though public speculation about his sexual orientation had been present throughout his career, he is famous for keeping his personal life private.

With the earth still shaking Ashei  Sopoaga immediately jumped into action to help those around him. A lesson in what it really means to be human.  He is the picture of quiet dignity.
