For a little kid, Addie Tinholt has a big social conscience. Where most girls her age would be only to happy to collect Shopkins or High School Musical memorabilia, the seven year-old from Vancouver has something different on her birthday wish list: to sponsor a refugee family from Syria.
Dianne Hoffmeyer, a Canadian living in Michigan, was in line to buy some Timbits for her toddler when the pair of middle-aged women ridiculed her. They commented on her "nasty" hair and called her a whale. "Oh the whale needs to eat," they said.
When trying to persuade his toddler to graduate to a big kid bed, dad Eric Strong had to first promise that he would give his son the "most awesome bed ever." After you see the extreme IKEA hack Strong came up with - that includes a secret chamber, slide, pulley and ball machine - there's no doubt that he did just that.
In case you didn't know, IKEA hacks are a big thing on YouTube.
With Halloween around the corner, Snapchat rolled out some fun webcam filters that twist your innocent features into those of a demon from the deepest recesses of hell.

And they've been recording their reactions and sharing videos on social media because why not.
Behind all the photos of glowing moms with new babies pressed to their bare chests is a slew of darker images that rarely see the light of day. Then comes along Danielle Haines.
In a photo taken three days after giving birth to her baby boy, Haines puts her most raw, vulnerable self forward.
For the longest time the photo was shared only as part of a birth class being taught by the Phoenix-based student midwife. Ten months on, Haines decided to post it on her Facebook page, and the rest is viral history.
