Positive Paparazzi: Former Football Star Carries Bomb Victim To Safety

E!

Former New England Patriots Star, Joe Andruzzi, carried a woman to safety after she was wounded by the Boston Marathon bombings. He later thanked all those who helped save lives:

"While I appreciate the interest in hearing our perspective on today's horrific events, the spotlight should remain firmly on the countless individuals—first responders, medics, EMTs, runners who crossed the finish line and kept on running straight to give blood, and the countless civilians who did whatever they could to save lives. They were the true heroes."

Patton Oswalt took to social media in response to the marathon bombings to make a powerful message about the amount of good in the world and how much more weight is has than the bad:

"I don't know what's going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths. But here's what I DO know. If it's one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out."

Phantom of the Opera star, Emmy Ross, supported breast cancer awareness by sporting a springy little number designed by Tabitha Webb. The designer's line from which Ross's dress comes from was created in collaboration with the CFDA to raise money for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.

WNBA star, Britney Griner, encouraged viewers and fans to not hide who they really are, by opening up to Sports Illustrated about being a gay professional athlete.

Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson may no longer be married, but they still make a good team to take care of their four-year-old, Bronx. Way to parent, guys.

The beautiful, funny and all around amazing Sofia Vergara is raising awareness of hyperthyroidism through a campaign called Follow the Script, which "aims to educate individuals with hypothyroidism about the importance of being consistent with the treatment prescribed by doctors."

Hugh Jackman dedicated his alter-ego, Wolverine, to Haiti, saying that the character would be all about helping those in need at an event for Donna Karan's Urban Zen organization. He went on saying that, "[B]eing part of a community, your world, and doing whatever you can is actually your birthright. It's actually what we're all naturally meant to do."

On behalf of his sister, Blaine Lawrence will accept the Down Syndrome of Louisville Friendship Award next week for Jennifer Lawrence to honor her relationship with Louisville’s Andy Strunk, a young man with down syndrome and is a long-time friend of Lawrence.

The Superstars for Sandy Relief Party raised $524,742. In attendance was Dwayne Johnson and Sean "Diddy" Combs.

Queen guitarist Brian May spoke out against animal suffering at Imperial College London Out Against Animal Suffering At Imperial College London. The member of one of the most prolific bands in history said he was appalled that the school he received an education from could have harbored mal-treatment of animals. "I can only fully support the work of BUAV and the RSPCA in conducting a full inquiry," he said, "[a]nd I hope the result will be that this appalling cruelty will never be allowed to happen again."

This was a devastating week for many people in light of the calamitous events in Boston and Texas, but also in light of it all is exactly what Patton Oswalt expressed in his message: there is plenty good. It there's enough of it to even get through a week like this one. Here's to the A-listers who saved lives, fed us hope and restored our faith in humanity. Cheers to that.
