Chow Yun-fat Plans to Give His Entire Fortune to Charity

Chinese ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ star is going to give his entire fortune to charity.

He apparently, lives on about $102 (US dollars) /  $800 (Hong Kong dollars) a month.

He stays frugal by taking public transportation and doing charity work instead of spending it on himself. He shops at discount clothing stores. He also had a Nokia phone for 17 years, and only upgraded to a smart phone recently, when his Nokia one stopped working.

He is giving his entire net worth, $5.6 billion Hong Kong Dollars (that’s $714 million USD) to charity.

What a great soul, and I hope that his money is properly used by the charity of his choice.

Australia Set to ‘Eliminate’ Cervical Cancer By 2028

Australia is set to be the first country to eliminate cervical cancer, aided by its national vaccination and screening programs, says a new study.

An estimated 99.7% of cervical cancer is caused by infection with Human Papillomavirus (HPV), a network of viruses that spread though sexual intercourse and skin-to-skin contact around the genitals.
Australia was one of the first countries to introduce a national HPV vaccination program for girls in 2007, and it has since been extended to achieve high vaccination coverage across both sexes, according to the study. Its National Cervical Cancer Screening Program began in 1991.

 

In 2007, Australia was one of the first countries to introduce a national human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination program, and it has since achieved high vaccination coverage across both sexes. In December, 2017, organised cervical screening in Australia transitioned from cytology-based screening every 2 years for women aged from 18–20 years to 69 years, to primary HPV testing every 5 years for women aged 25–69 years and exit testing for women aged 70–74 years. We aimed to identify the earliest years in which the annual age-standardised incidence of cervical cancer in Australia (which is currently seven cases per 100 000 women) could decrease below two annual thresholds that could be considered to be potential elimination thresholds: a rare cancer threshold (six new cases per 100 000 women) or a lower threshold (four new cases per 100 000 women), since Australia is likely to be one of the first countries to reach these benchmarks.

The cancer could be classified as “rare” and not be in as many humans as early as 2022, meeting a threshold of six new cases per 100,000 and deaths due to the diseases are expected to decline to one new case per 100,000 women by 2034.

Vending Machine in Indiana Dispenses Clean Clothes and Blankets to Homeless

A new vending machine in Muncie, Indiana, isn’t a normal vending machine. This one has a purpose to serve more than human greed. Isn’t stocked with poisonous sodas and junk food. It dispenses winter basics like warm clothing, socks, and blankets, and instead of charging cash or credit cards, it gives away these items for free to the community.

The vending machine was set up outside the local fire department to service the up to 200 people without permanent homes in Delaware County, Indiana. If you or someone in need wants to utilize this, you or they have to first have to register with the charity organization Bridges Community Services.

There they are given free tokens that can be used to access the vending machine.

Every item currently in the Indiana vending machine was donated by a member of the community, and Bridges Community Services is still accepting donations. If you would like to help or donate, contact them now.

Customers Buy Out Orange County Doughnut Shop Daily So Owner Can Spend Time With Sick Wife

Customers buy every single doughnut at local Seal Beach doughnut shop in Orange County, California so that the owner the community has come to love can be with his sick wife.

Chhan and his wife, Stella, have owned Donut City for three decades. The couple came to Orange County as refugees from Cambodia in 1979. Since then, they have worked side by side every single morning to serve locals delicious doughnuts at their loved doughnut shop – until recently.

Customers who have dearly missed Stella Chhan’s presence behind the counter serving them doughnuts every morning were shocked to discover that she had suffered from a terrible aneurysm. Thank God, she’s survived, but has become weak and in rehab, and her soulmate, John Chhan rushes home every day to be with her as soon as the shop sells out of doughnuts.

John Chhan has declined customers’  requests to to set up a GoFundMe account for the couple, saying he really just wants more time with his wife. So, instead, local customers have decided to help Donut City sell out early every single day so that he can return to the rehabilitation center where she is recovering.

“She can talk, she can write,” Chhan said to local press of his wife’s progress. “Right now she’s trying to start…eat something.”

Steve’s Pizza Manager Makes 225 Mile Delivery to Man on Hospice

His name is Dalton Shaffer and he drove from Battle Creek, Michigan to Indianapolis, Indiana (450 miles round trip) to deliver a pizza from a pizza place in Michigan that doesn’t even deliver.

“I am beyond overwhelmed and humbled by this act of genuine kindness. Dalton brought our family so much joy – and the best pizza in the world – at a really difficult time. While ‘thank you’ hardly seems adequate – from the bottom of my heart, thank you, Dalton from Steve’s Pizza in Battle Creek, MI for making your epic middle of the night pizza delivery!” Julie Morgan wrote on Facebook, posting a photo of two slices of pizza.

For Julie Morgan and Rich Morgan of Indianapolis, it was the nice gesture that came with two pizzas delivered from their favorite pizzeria soon after they learned that Rich would enter hospice care, that made their day.

Though money was tight, Rich would bring home a pizza from Steve’s Pizza every payday, she said.

The couple planned to getaway to Michigan and to grab some of their favorite pizza from Steve’s Pizza in Battle Creek was interrupted by a trip to the ICU, where they learned Rich’s battle with cancer was coming to an end, she wrote on Facebook.
