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.

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.
