there really are generous people in this world...

Today in my sociology class I was introduced to a TV show that is already becoming one of my favorites. It is called "Secret Millionaire." These extremely wealthy people go live for a week in extremely poor areas with only $110 and basically the clothes on their back. They get to know the people, find whatever jobs they can get, and basically learn what it's like in the real world. At the end, they give away at least $100,000 of their own money to people in need. Most of them give away more. If you haven't seen it, you can watch it online here. I highly recommend it. You will love it. You will cry. It gives me hope for humanity!


This also gives me hope for humanity:




and this.
hehe.
