A tattoo artist in Iowa offers free removal of gang related, racist, or hateful tattoos. Robert Badger owns The Crow’s Nest Tattoo Studio and he recognizes that the ink is permanent, but a person’s point of view can change. A lot of people can’t afford to get their tattoos removed, so he wants to help them get rid of the ink they regret by providing the expensive service for free. Badger says it’s another step in removing hate from the world, adding, “It’s basically good versus evil.”
A Denver non-profit rescues leftover food from big events, that would normally get thrown out, and donates it to area shelters and food banks. Arlan Preblud started We Don’t Waste after learning leftover food after games at Denver’s stadiums and arenas were just thrown in the trash. Last year alone they provided 10 million meals to the hungry in Colorado. They also partner with Nation to Nation to provide food and clothing to the Lakota Sioux at the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, which has the lowest per capita income in the country.
A Utah school bus driver braided the hair of an 11-year-old girl whose mother passed away. After losing her mom to a rare illness two years ago, Isabella Pieri’s dad taught his little girl how to take care of herself so she could get ready for school in the mornings, because he leaves early for work. The 11-year-old Utah girl does a great job, but one thing that she didn’t learn from her dad: how to do her hair. She saw bus driver by Tracey Dean braiding another student’s hair and worked up the courage to ask her to braid hers, too. Now she styles each girl’s hair almost every morning.
