    Kind of a minor one, but it happened to me the other day. I went to lunch alone at Genghis Grill, and when I asked for my check the waiter said an old couple who left 5 minutes ago paid for my meal. So I didn't even get to thank them. So instead I went ahead and paid for someone's else meal that was a few tables down.

    That's pretty cool!

    Imagine if the person whose meal you paid for did the same for someone else and and he/she/they in turn did the same and on and on and on....

    Not sure if this is a Good Deed story, but it's still pretty cool.

    They have images of the phone and box it came in and much more back story if you click the link.

    Samsung sends man free phone in exchange for dragon drawing

    "I was bored and I love the phone," Shane Bennett explained when asked why he sent a message to one of Samsung's official Facebook accounts in May. He'd asked the company for a free Galaxy S III smartphone and included a drawing of a dragon as a bribe of sorts. Three months later, he received a package containing a one-of-a-kind Galaxy S III, customized with that very dragon drawing.

    Louisiana Father-Son Team Rescues 120 From Flooding
    By JENNIFER ABBEY | ABC News – 4 hrs ago

    Residents of Plaquemines Parish in Louisiana were shocked by Hurricane Isaac Wednesday morning when ocean water burst over the Mississippi River levee, covering their town and leaving thousands trapped in attics and on roofs.

    Jesse Shaffer, 25, and his father, also named Jesse Shaffer, 53, both of Braithwaite, La., stayed behind in their town to rescue their friends.

    While police and the fire department were unable to reach some stranded people using their vehicles, the Shaffers were able to save lives using boats.
    "We rescued a lot of people, saw a lot of things you never thought you'd see," the older Shaffer told ABC News, beginning to cry.

    Each Shaffer controlled a boat, in which the pair saved a combined 120 people in 12 hours, as well as animals.

    Amazing story. Thanks for posting this.

    Good people in a crisis situation, doing incredibly valiant things for their neighbors. The father was so emotionally affected. That affected me.

    I just came across this goodie.

    ===========================

    Sergey Brin Is Secretly Buying Up Property And Charging Below-Market Rent

    As a cofounder of Google, Sergey Brin has already done lots of very good things for the world on a macro scale.

    He's given us a great technology that makes the Internet usable, created a company that provides jobs for tens of thousands of people, and donated millions to various charities. He's investing in genetic cures for diseases and space exploration, too.

    But one of the coolest, warmest things he's doing with his money is on a much smaller scale.
