Weddings are the bride's big day to shine, but one bride wanted to shine that light on her mom, who was battling cancer. Instead of going through the traditional wedding dance, Jony and Alister shaved their heads on the dance floor in solidarity with Jony's mom Luna. Needless to say, Luna was overwhelmed by her daughter and new son-in-law's loving gesture.

Unfortunately, the story doesn't have a happy ending. Luna passed away just a couple of months later. While Jony and Alister are still grieving, they decided to donate all the money to cancer research programs in New Zealand.

Elephants In Trouble

Elephants In Trouble

This first elephant is in trouble because it's the one causing the trouble. It marched into a village in India and began ripping through the wall of a building. To retaliate, the residents threw firecrackers at the poor creature in an attempt to scare it off. Eventually, it wandered away. Over at Oldonyiro Community Conservancy in Kenya, three helpless elephants were trapped in mud and couldn't get out on their own. Rescuers hauled each elephant out of the mud with a tractor.
