James Wharton recently published, Out In The Army: My Life as a Gay Soldier, which tells how in 2008,  Prince Harry saved him from a homophobic attack from other servicemen. Harry's like, ONE good deed away from making me do something important irrational like friend him on Facebook or something brilliant ridiculous like that.

John Malkovich rescued a bleeding man from Ohio in Toronto. I'd say John Malkovich probably never thought he'd do something like that, but every time I doubt John Malkovich, I get pleasantly surprised. So... I guess I'm suggesting that he's good in a crisis because he can see it coming... because he's psychic. Just a theory.

Samuel L. Jackson has released a recorded monologue a promise he made as part of a contest he held to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. When he learned the donations to the association reached $175,000, he celebrated with this beauty:

Dancing With The Stars host, Brooke Burke LURVES her two new kittens, so much that she joined up with 50 Years, 50 Shelters to help raise awareness of how much the program helps dedicated cat shelters across the country. Me-YOW, baby.

John Rich, country singer and former member of the band Lonestar performed a sold-out show for St. Jude's Children Hospital.

The UK and Ireland One Direction performances will mean a lot to cancer research. The viral boy band has decided to donate their ticket sales to Stand Up To Cancer. Pinch me, I'm swooning.

Charo has surfaced!! From what, I'm not sure! I just haven't seen her in a long time and I'm excited!! And guess what, she's totally NOT INTO bull fighting. In fact, she hates it. Because she's a caring person AND an iconic guitarist/singer/half-ponytail wearer. Way to go, chica.

Whew! What a week for celebrity goodness. I'm floored, I'm stunned, I'm verklempt even! And how could we not be? The stars came out in full force this week to teach the world a thing or ten about being good to your fellow man, fan, and creature. Faith in humanity: RESTORED. Cheers to that, my friends, cheers to THAT.

Farm Becomes Sanctuary for Animals After Tragedy

The impetus for the creation of the Ima Survivor Animal Sanctuary was the awful week in August 2017 when Hurricane Harvey meandered about southeast Texas unleashing biblical amounts of rain and wreaking havoc on the people and animals who lived there. The survival of a donkey named Ima Jean from 6 foot flood waters, her struggle to live and the fight to survive by her and the other animals from Lester Morrow's ranch is the inspiration for this unique habitat.

Rescue, Transform, Share: How an Ohio Soup Shack Is Saving Lives

"It really does take a village to help people," says Sandra Lettie, a volunteer with La Soupe in Cincinnati, Ohio. La Soupe is helping to build and activate just such a "village" of compassionate people from the local area around the goal of producing food from discarded produce and providing it to families in need.

According to La Soupe's CEO, Suzy DeYoung, the organization's central mission is to "rescue, transform, and share." First, volunteers with La Soupe visit grocery stores and farms to pick up produce that was going to be discarded and "rescue" it for use in the soups that the team creates. That produce is then "transformed" into healthy, delicious food by the chefs at La Soupe. Finally, the food is "shared" with those in the local community who need it.
