Have You Ever Made Somebody's Day?

When was the last time you intentionally made someone's day? What if you didn't even really know the person? Nirvan Mullick, a young film-maker in Los Angeles did that for a nine-year-old kid named Caine Monroy, who spent last summer making his own arcade out of cardboard boxes at his father's car parts store. Nirvan came looking for a door handle for his '96 Corolla, and found Caine inviting him to play. He did, and then Nirvan asked Caine's dad if he could make a short film about Caine and his arcade. Here's the video (that has been seen by almost 4,000,000 people!):

After the flashmob, at the end of the day as Caine and his dad drove home, Caine turned to his dad and said, “Dad, this was the best day of my whole life.

All because I guy looking for a door handle, found a smart, little kid waiting on a customer to play some games he made out of cardboard boxes from his dad's stockroom.

Nirvan had a simple idea: tell Caine's story and invite people into it. The result? EVERYONE was blessed! EVERYONE....Caine, Nirvan, the flashmob, oh, and the folks who have donated (mostly a dollar at a time) over $150,000.00 to Caine's college fund!

All because a complete stranger had an idea to bless a little kid, and ACTED ON IT!

So, again, I ask you: have you ever made somebody's day? What are you waiting for?
