Tonight, I bring you the story of Lilica. A beautiful and thoughtful dog, whose unwavering dedication to her friends has earned her the honour of being a Favourite Non-Human.

Each night, Lilica embarks on a four-mile journey to find food - not just for herself but for her non-human family back home. She finds this food courtesy of Lucia, a teacher and caring animal lover who has spent many years dedicated to caring for her canine night-time caller.

As humans, we sometimes forget to consider others in the way we should. Lilica and Lucia are a glowing reminder of what being a true friend should really look like. That is why this pair will share the title of Favourite - one non, and one human.

Be a good friend to someone today. Someone you know or someone you’ve just met. Or someone you just pet.

Be good to each other.

I DO think this is a damn good idea - and not just for San Francisco. 

Doniece Sandoval is the Founder of Lava Mae, an organization working to bring dignity to thousands of people living without homes and with no or little access to shower and bathroom facilities. Lava Mae is repurposing old buses and converting them into mobile clean-up stations for use by those who need it most. 

Taking a shower, being clean and having access to basic human requirements should not be considered a privilege. It’s a right. And if anyone does not have even the smallest of conveniences, we should do what we can to help them attain them - because that is right. 

Doniece has taken upcycling to an epic and most awesome level, and by doing so, will help change lives - through showers. That is why Doniece Sandoval is Today’s Favourite Human. 

Check out the Lava Mae campaign on Indiegogo and spread the word. 

Spread the love, where you can, whenever you can.

Remember in City Slickers when Jack Palance’s character, Curly, says “You know what the secret to life is? One Thing. Just one thing” 
Maybe what he meant was - do one thing, any one thing, that you can to help another human being. Give one thing. Share one thing. And one thing will come back to you. That one thing? Simple. You make the world a better place to be. 
It doesn’t take a lot to make a lot of difference in this world. 
Sam found his one thing - and that’s why he is Today’s Favourite Human.

It took only a minute for these divers to save the life of this beautiful creature, but by doing so, they help to ‪#‎maketheworldabetterplacetobe‬ - That’s why Colin Sutton & Cameron Dietrich are Today’s Favourite Humans.

Worldwide, six of the seven sea turtle species are classified as threatened or endangered due to human actions and lifestyles. 
The biggest threats include:

Entanglement in fishing gear
Poaching and illegal trade of eggs, meat, and shells
Coastal development
Plastic and other marine debris
Global warming
Ocean pollution

Please help protect the creatures we share our world with by making responsible, kind choices that consider others.

Let’s all be ‪#‎HUMANSFORABETTERWORLD‬

When you open your eyes, what do you see? What events can you use to inspire hope in the world?

Derreck Kayongo has seen more than anyone should ever see. More pain, more turmoil, more strife and more need than most of us could even begin to imagine. But, when offered opportunity, he also saw possibility; the possibility of turning waste into hope - and health for others.

That’s why Derreck Kayongo is Today’s Favourite Human.

Take a moment today and think about what you see around you and how you can use it to help others, and to help ‪#‎maketheworldabetterplacetobe‬.

Happy Sunday.
