Monique and her kids have had a tough road. After losing her parents and husband to war in the Congo, she immigrated to the U.S. for a fresh start. She works as a caretaker at a hotel, but that doesn't pay for much more than caring for her kids and the rent. So the folks over Praynksters took her out to dinner and didn't tell her about the home makeover. They provided actual furniture and chairs for this struggling family, making their virtually bare apartment become a real home.

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. After some time on solid ground, each elephant was able to recover and stand up on its own. View Now
