Girl, 7, is gifted a horse after story goes viral

Alexus “Lex” Lasiter, 7, loves horses and receiving mail. So much so that her mother Wathena Sievert, on a whim, asked Travis Barker, a Florida artist that contributes to an online artifact website, if she could contract him to draw a picture of a horse to cheer her daughter on. Travis not only offered to create a picture for free (and mail it to Lex), but he opened a Facebook page, Horses for Lex, to invite other artists to follow suit.

Dear Robin Williams, you are fondly remembered

A “comedic Mother Teresa” is what Garry Kravit, uncle to David Buist who was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer, labeled Robin Williams. Kravit met Williams at an event and asked Williams if he would autograph a few items to raffle off at a fundraiser for a new Ronald McDonald House. Not only did Williams oblige, he would periodically call David throughout his treatment and recovery to cheer him on.
