My faith in humankind has been restored.

A 60-year-old homeless woman named Smokie has been sleeping outside in the dirt a few doors down from a man named Elvis Summers.

Most mornings, she stops by Elvis’s Los Angeles apartment and asks if he has any recyclables for her. Through these conversation, they struck up a friendship.

One morning, Elvis saw a news article about a man in Oakland who has been making tiny houses out of discarded material. He was inspired to put off paying a few bills so he could buy the lumber and hardware to make Smokie a brand new shelter. It took him five days to build, and now, for the first time in ten years, Smokie has a place to hang the sign, ‘Home Sweet Home.’Ewan-Drum-Superhero-to-homeless-SuperEwanInc-750px

“I had nowhere to really build it, so I just built it in the street outside of my apartment,” he told Good News Network. “The local LAPD cops have been super cool, and have told me they support it–as long as we move it to a different spot every 72 hours.”

He made this nifty time-lapse video showing how he did it. The materials, including two locks on the front door and sturdy wheels for moving it around, cost him about $500.

Kudos to all except those profit-minded passersby.

This is very close to USC. My parents had a store just a little east of there.

Thanks for the post! I'm going to reshare.

My kitchen, at +2M Street​, has gone by a MakingItShine moment. Therefore, here it goes the excuse to keep it closed for the weekend. I need to turned the lights off. Otherwise, it'll be the #NeverEndingStory.

The kitchen is so thrilled that has its own dance. #2MLife #DistrictOfColumbia #NoMa

Dear minions behind How-Old.net:

Go home, you are drunk. I was 37 years of age 7 years ago. Happy to be 44, but it was fun to play. 

Bizarre.

You look young for your age (I do to) so, yeah.

It got it almost right for me with my glasses on, but with my glasses off I apparently look 10 years younger.

On the Alto Rio Guamá reserve in Brazil, the Tembe tribe has been battling for decades to save its land from illegal loggers and settlers. As tension escalates, the Tembe people have now been forced to take up arms and confront the loggers, sparking violent clashes deep within the jungle.

With the odds stacked against the tribe, VICE News traveled to the northern Brazilian state of Para to meet the Tembe and witness the tribe’s struggle to protect its land.
