Here at Ever Widening Circles, you may know that we try to be the nicest global community on the web. We bring you one article almost every day – on any subject under the sun – to reminds us all that it is still an amazing world.

Sometimes we share insights in science, the arts, sports, or we tell the story of ordinary people doing extraordinary things, and other times we are all about the innovations and “Thought Leaders” from all around the world!

Today, we will point you to some regular folks who, not unlike any of our friends and neighbors, are just really, really nice. These people just happened to make their home a senior pet sanctuary! This video from National Geographic’s awesome channel shows us all about how there are truly still caring and amazing people in this world. Take a look!

What could you do to make someone else’s day really special?
