Well this is heartwarming. When an Ohio coffee shop caught a man on camera stealing money out of a tip jar, they didn't call police. Instead, they held a food drive for him.

It only takes a minute to send a free holiday message to a survivor of prison sexual abuse. (The organization tells us: "Last year, we received over 10,000 unique holiday messages – and nearly half of them came from Gawker readers.")

Homeless Man Returns Engagement Ring Worth Thousands to Woman After She Accidentally Dropped It in His Change Cup

Taylor Berman · 02/13/13 08:03PM

Last Friday in Kansas City, rich engaged woman Sarah Darling spotted poor homeless man Billy Ray Harris in a part of Kansas City called The Plaza. Harris was holding a cup full of spare change, so Darling, because she felt bad that one time or perhaps because she's always been generous, emptied her coin purse into the cup and walked off, probably happy about having performed that day's Good Deed.

Thanks to the New York State Legislature, gay marriages are all the rage right now, but someone might want to tell the owner of Here Comes the Bride, a bridal shop in Somers Point, on the Jersey Shore (the actual shore, not the show). She just refused to sell a lesbian a wedding dress.

Join the Party: Help Gawker Media Raise Money for Same-Sex Marriage

Brian Moylan · 06/02/11 01:22PM

We crack wise about a lot of things here at Gawker, and generally avoid getting all serious and earnest about the political issues of the day. But this month, in honor of Pride Month, we've decided to, earnestly and seriously, throw our support behind something we're truly passionate about: marriage equality. So we're hosting a big fundraiser to support the cause, and we need your help.

Donnie Wahlberg isn't just an actor and beloved member of New Kids on the Block. He's also an organ broker! Not in the traditional, wake-up-with-a-huge-scar-in-a-hotel-bathtub-filled-with-ice way, either: Wahlberg helped a fan find a 100-percent legitimate new kidney, using only Twitter.
