I’m just going to warn you that what you’re about to see is going to leave you feeling pretty stunned.

Why? Because it’s the cutest thing that’s ever happened. Although the footage begins with a man preparing some not-so-appetizing meals in his kitchen, it’s the culmination that counts, people.

Whenever he goes outside with buckets in toe, he brings a little more preciousness into this world. That’s what we all need right now, isn’t it? The activist works for an organization called the Orphan Bear Rehabilitation Center in Russia, and something tells me that his job is a rewarding one.

I’m pretty sure this is what happiness looks like.

To see all of the life-affirming cuteness unfold, watch the video below.

As a kid, whenever I was given a glass of milk with a straw, I pretty much always did this:

There was just something so silly about the act of blowing bubbles to produce a frothy mess.

But apparently kids aren’t the only childish ones out there. Meet Maya the husky. When her owner Kent Duryée was outside BBQing, he noticed the playful pup doing something decidedly adorable. Just watch…

Share this if you did the same thing as a kid!

It’s too often we hear about greedy CEOs who get away with paying their staff the bare minimum in order to line their own pockets.

And that’s what makes this story such a breath of fresh air.

I’m sure that when Dan Price, the CEO of Gravity Payments, decided to raise the minimum wage for his whole team to $70,000, the only reward he expected would be knowing that he was making all of his employees’ lives easier. But he was in for quite a surprise a year later when, as a thank you, they all pitched in and bought him THIS.

Talk about awesome company culture!

It’s really heartwarming to see how one act of kindness inspires so much generosity. Here’s hoping that more companies follow Price’s lead and make their employees this happy.

When it comes to raising little ones, there’s something special about all the hard work mothers do, whether they’re human moms or not. On four legs or two, moms make looking after the kids their first priority, and elephant mothers are among the most dedicated.

When this baby elephant got a little too close to some humans, its mother did what any parent would do in that situation. Check out what happens when those maternal instincts kick in!

She clearly has everything under control! Honestly, humans are the most destructive beings of all, so she wasn’t wrong in protecting her baby. This just goes to show you that all mothers are amazing, no matter what species they happen to be.

Jennings is a predominantly Black town in Missouri, where a majority of the population lives below the poverty line.

Every day, Dr. Anderson travels four hours to school.

She even serves as a crossing guard when students arrive.

She provides warm coats and hot chocolate for kiddos who need a little pick-me-up.

Many had written off the Jennings School District, but that didn’t stop Anderson from wanting to make a change for the better.

With the help of grants and partnerships, Anderson was able to balance the school district’s budget and launch a college prep program.

She also brought back arts education.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI2_BTF’); });

She began her engagement outside of academics and listened to community concerns. She was able to open up a food pantry. She’s given 8,000 pounds of food per month to hand out to community members.

Anderson also took an interest in healthcare. Each school is equipped with a few mental health therapists. Thanks to a partnership with Washington University, pediatricians are also employed.

She even introduced a program to support teen moms as they try to balance continuing education with motherhood.

The Jennings School District has become fully accredited in just under four years. They are now meeting 81 percent of the state benchmarks for education.

Check out even more of Dr. Tiffany Anderson’s work with the Jennings School District in the video below.

Dr. Anderson is a remarkable woman who has done such great things for the Jennings School District. She has a bright future in education, and school officials in underprivileged areas should follow her amazing lead.

Is waking up to the sight of a pack of happy dogs your biggest life goal? Same.

And that’s exactly what the people at this sanctuary are greeted with every single day. This four-acre property is home to 45 rescue dogs and one wolf hybrid, and their wagging tails speak volumes about the fact that dogs want nothing more than to be loved and to run free.

It seriously doesn’t get cuter than this!

I don’t know about you, but I think those dogs are really the ones running the show! I doubt their humans mind.

The folks at Improv Everywhere create amazing flash mobs of all kinds. When you think of flash mobs, you probably think of people dancing out of nowhere in a public place, but the mob that they just orchestrated is totally unique.

This is Improv Everywhere’s newest prank. It seems simple, but it requires a lot of coordination. Difficulty aside, they hope that the surprise spreads holiday cheer throughout the community.

I think it’s safe to say that they achieved their goal! Kudos to Improv Everywhere for giving people some holiday joy in a totally unexpected way.

Harrison was born a regular puppy. He was just like any other dog in the world. He didn’t have any birth defects — there was nothing wrong with him. All he wanted to do was grow up in a loving home.

Sadly though, due to some unfortunate and unknown circumstances, Harrison became badly burned by chemicals. He arrived at the Vet Ranch in terrible shape.

But they weren’t about to give up on him…watch him transform before your eyes!

Every day, dogs just like Harrison find themselves in animal shelters. The abuse needs to stop! If you can do something to help the poor souls who have already been wronged, please do. Head over to the Vet Ranch website to see how you can get involved in this process.

For this adorable rottweiler, if there was a fire and he had to race back into the house to grab one thing…it’d be his best friend — the cat! Because there’s simply nothing he loves more in the entire world.

While that doesn’t sound believable (don’t dogs hate cats?), we have video proof that these two are hilariously inseparable…at least according to the pooch.

We’re unsure how into it the cat is…it looks like all the affection is a little too much for him to handle. Either way, they’re adorable to watch!

When trying to pull off an incredible stunt, you have to expect that something might go wrong. The only bad part is that things going wrong could lead to your demise. Despite the risk of death or severe bodily harm, people still attempt to act like daredevils. Usually, everything is fine…until it isn’t. Take, for example, the story of Slovenian diver Andrej Beuc.

Earlier this month, Beuc died while attempting to dive off of a bridge into the Drina River — which is on the border of Bosnia and Serbia — during a diving competition.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

The bridge (pictured below) was about 60 feet from the water and normally would have been an easy dive for Beuc, who was an experienced jumper and skydiver.

However, something went wrong when he hit the surface of the water.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

Beuc was able to get his head above water and signal that he needed help before slipping back below the surface.

Divers were quickly dispatched to find Beuc, but the strong current and muddy waters continue to make things difficult for rescue crews as they work to recover his body.

Here is the footage of his fatal accident. WARNING: This is not for the faint of heart.

As of this writing, they have still not found Beuc’s body. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family in this time of great sorrow.
