And I love the world again…

Fun fact of the day…

A man disguises himself as a homeless man in Vancouver only to help the people who offer to help him. This man is not homeless at all, he recently paid the rent for a young man who was down on his luck but still offered to help the “homeless” man sitting outside of his bank. This “Santa Claus’ does this every Christmas season, rewarding random acts of kindness.
