Good Day's #GoodNews! Man Helps Teen in Need of Food

Matt White, 30, was in the produce section of a Kroger in Memphis, TN, when 16-year-old Chauncy Jones Black approached him and asked if he could carry his groceries to his car in exchange for a pack of glazed donuts.
"This kid looked like he had been turned down 100 times. He looked ashamed, hungry and broken."
Matt began talking to Chauncy and soon found out that he didn't have anything at home to eat. Chauncy lives alone with his disabled Grandmother, Barbara, who gets social security but not food stamps.
Matt decided to buy Chauncy the donuts along with a few bags of groceries and offered to drive Chauncy home
On the ride, Matt discovered Chauncy is a straight-A student who wants to one day own his own business "so that he could help other people in his neighborhood."
Matt said once they arrived at Chauncy's rental home he discovered not only did they not have any food, "They didn't even have beds or furniture. They were sleeping on pads made out of sleeping bags."
Matt shared Chauncy's story on Facebook and when the post went viral, he created a GoFundMe page to help Chauncy, asking for $250 so Chauncy could buy a lawnmower to make some money
As the story spread and the donations flooded in, Matt raised his goal to $73,000, so he could by Chauncy and Barbara their own house.
As of today the GoFundMe page called "Chauncy's Chance" has raised almost $292,000.

Billy Joel Talks MSG Residency and Live in 2016

Billy Joel holds the record for selling out 36 shows at Madison Square Garden in three years, more than any other artist.
In a new interview to promote his MSG residency, which will last through the end of this year, Joel says 'The front row is always pretty girls'.
'I got tired of seeing these gold-chain guys with their babes sitting at the front going, "entertain me",'So I said, "To hell with this, the front row is not on the market."
"I send my road crew to the cheap seats and they pick who they want in front - the cutest girls they can find. So we look down and see beautiful women. That amps it up."
Joel says these days he doesn't want to be away from his wife, 34 yr old Alexis Roderick and their 8 month-old daughter.
He says he does all the cooking and Alexis does the cleaning.
Joel admits he's gained weight but he adds: 'A guy on a diet is not a guy as far as I'm concerned. I can even judge a woman I'm dating by how she eats. If she picks at her food she's not going to be good in bed.'

Kanye West Debuts New Video for "Famous", stirs up more controversy

Kayne West debuted his new video for his song, "Famous" to 8,000 fans at the LA Forum, with tickets selling out in 20 minutes
The video was inspired by American realist painter Vincent Desiderio's piece called "Sleep", which depicts a group of naked people sleeping together
Kanye's video, which he says is a commentary on celebrity, depicts lifelike wax versions of George W. Bush, Donald Trump, Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian, Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner and Bill Cosby, all laying together in a bed naked. Kanye is seen sleeping in the middle of the group.
Kim, Kanye, Caitlyn and Amber-Rose all make live appearances in the video
George W. Bush's spokesman, whoever wanted to make sure no one thought that was the real 42nd president saying: 'In case there was any doubt... that is not President Bush. He is in much better shape.'

Blake Lively finally speaks out to slam claims she was being 'racist' for joking on Instagram about having an 'LA face' and 'an Oakland booty'

The 28-year-old actress faced serious backlash after posting lyrics to Sir Mix-A-Lot's 1992 hit song 'Baby Got Back' along with a photo of herself in a fitted gown on the Cannes red carpet, with the caption: "LA Face with an Oakland Booty"
Blake did not remove the post - and the rapper later also came out to defend her, saying it meant the beauty 'norm has changed'
Blake, who's pregnant with her second child, says "'I would never want to hurt anyone's feelings or upset anyone. I was celebrating my body... It's nice to have curves and not look like you're starving to death.'

Couple Loses Child, Gains Hundreds of Orphans Thanks to Shark Tank

In the spring of 2010, Melissa Hinnant was five months into her pregnancy when she was rushed into emergency surgery where she lost the baby
"I remember [my husband] Rick looking at me, and he said we have a choice to make. He said we can either be mad at God or we can choose to believe something good is going to come out of this."
To cope with the pain, Melissa started sewing and in the fall of 2011, she made her first pair of lace leg warmers.
I put them up online, and within 48 hours we had over 400 requests for them!"
The Grace & Lace business was born and in 2012, the couple appeared on ABC's Shark Tank.
"After the show aired [in November 2013], we ended up doing $1 million in sales in five days."
Melissa and Rick decided to give back, so they partnered with Angel House, an organization that aims to give abandoned children in India a home.
Within six months Melissa and Rick built two orphanages in India, taking 100 orphans off the street and supplying them with beds, fresh water, three meals a day, house parents and a private school education.
Another thing the couple did was give each of the orphan girls a new name, because they were all called 'Rundi ki bachi', which translates to 'daughter of a prostitute'
Rick and Melissa have since opened seven orphanages plus one home in Nepal that saves women from human trafficking
They are on track to open 5 more orphanages in 2016
The couple now has three young children of their own but say they consider all the orphans in India their own as well

High School Holds Graduation Do-Over for Special Student

Scott Dunn was supposed to graduate from East Juniata High School in McAlisterville, Pennsylvania, on May 25 but on May 22, on his way to a track meet, Dunn got into a car accident that put him into a coma
"I remember waking up in the hospital and asking my mom what day it was. She told me it was the 28th," Dunn said. "I looked at her and said, 'I missed my graduation'."
When the school's principal heard Scott was awake, he wanted to do something special for him.
On June 14, three weeks after the other students officially graduated, 50 seniors from Dunn's graduating class of 80, showed up in caps and gowns for ceremonial do-over for one.
Dunn got to lead his classmates in a procession to "Pomp and Circumstance," and as Dunn walked across the stage to get his diploma, graduates erupted into applause.
"I'm speechless," Dunn told WHTM. "I don't know how to even explain it. I'm speechless to know that this many people are behind me."
