1. Problem: my dog doesn’t like to cuddle. Solution: Cuddle Clones. Cuddle Clones is a company that creates a stuffed animal version of your pet. Bonus: portions of each purchase go to pet related causes. Because I have a little corgi with an aversion for cuddling, I would like to get a full size replica of this dog and cuddle with it forever.

2. Ever hear people say, “when I was your age I walked 5 miles to school, uphill, both ways!”. Well, they have nothing on this man who walked 21 miles every day for work. Luckily, his inspirational story has made the news and donations to help him have been pouring in.

3. The World Food Programme is working to put a name and story to the 805 million people around the world who are fighting hunger. Read their inspiring stories here. Share. Discuss. Donate.

4. The Kid President guide to being more awesome. Corndog anyone?
