Many children are unhappy about having to wear prescription glasses or an eye patch to resolve different eye conditions. That’s why Truffles, a former stray cat, by the initiative of her owner, Danielle Crull started wearing glasses to help children feel better and gain confidence in wearing them as well! The rescue cat’s pictures are a hit on social media!
A Stray Kitty Got a Forever Home
In 2016, Truffles was found in a church camp in Pennsylvania and swiftly adopted by Danielle Crull and her family. The cat has a sweet temperament and was quickly learning tricks such as to give a high five or sit on command. As a master optician, Crull came to the idea of teaching the pet to wear glasses and help their young clients feel more comfortable when being fitted for glasses.
Children Loved the New Shop Assistant
Crull started bringing Truffles to her office called A Child’s Eyes, located in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Children as young as four months old are brought there to be fitted for prescription glasses or eye patches. When children are feeling insecure or scared of trying on glasses, Truffles comes out modeling his own pair and the mood immediately changes. Crull said that the cat’s calm demeanor and charisma bring kids from tears to a sunny and joyful mood.
Truffles Became an Online Sensation
This amazing cat has over 20 pairs of glasses that are fitted to be comfortable and don’t have any lenses. The owner has been posting images of the cat modeling all the glasses on social media where the kitty gained a significant following. She also stars in her own educational videos about how to properly choose and wear eyeglasses. As the popular kitty receives many messages from kids, the owner always responds on her behalf with words of encouragement or gifts.
Plenty of couples have been forced to change wedding plans this year because of the ongoing crisis. That’s not something that Tyler and Melanie Tapajna were going to let get them down, though. They managed to still tie the knot while also doing some good in the world – feeding the homeless at their reception.
Change Of Plan
The couple was initially supposed to have 150 guests at their wedding. However, such a big ceremony simply wasn’t possible with everything going on in the world. So, they changed their plans and organized something more intimate for just their friends and family. A lot of plans needed to be altered to make this happen. After all, they’d already arranged for things like the catering before the crisis happened. However, rather than canceling 150-people’s worth of food, they opted to do something special with it.
Feeding The Homeless
Tyler and Melanie decided that the food should go to people who needed it most – the homeless. So, they spoke with the nonprofit organization Laura’s Home about donating it to the women and children who they cater to. Their request was approved, and plans were swiftly put in place for everything to go ahead. The couple didn’t just want to give the food away and be done with it, though. They also wanted to serve it.
After tying the knot in their intimate ceremony, the Tapajnas then went straight to Laura’s Home, put on a hairnet and gloves, and got to work. They didn’t even change out of their outfits. It wasn’t the reception that the couple had planned, but in a way, it was better. They got to do some good in the world on what was the happiest day of their lives.
This crisis may have forced the Tapanjas to change their wedding plans, but in doing so, it ended up benefitting more people than they could have ever imagined.
