Maybe it's the fact that people who are down and out know what it feels like to need help? Maybe it's the fact that, after years of being incarcerated, Chuck felt the need to give back to society?

Or, maybe it's the idea that when someone receives an act of kindness, they can't wait to pay it forward?

Regardless, Charles "Chuck" Logan, 56, is getting some love on special media for stopping to help out when everyone else turned a blind-eye to a single-mom with a flat tire.

Shuree Michelle had a blow out in the middle of the street in Ogden, Utah on September 23, and waited by the side of the road while countless cars drove on by with no one stopping to help.


Logan, a man experiencing homelessness, saw that she was in need of help so he approached her on the side of the road. "Out comes this guy and he asked if I had a spare tire and a jack," she told Yahoo Lifestyle. "He didn't hesitate to help — it was very sweet."

Michelle gave him $10 for his troubles.

The act of kindness was photographed by Anna Davidson, the owner of Jessie Jean's Historic 25th cafe, which is across the street from where Michelle had her blowout. She posted it to Facebook where it's earned over 3,000 reactions.

"Looked out the window to see this happening. This is Chuck...he's homeless and works his a** off helping every day in the cafe," Davidson wrote. "This is 'one of those people' that get labeled. Ya know the ones everyone wants outta sight, outta mind.. I didn't see anyone else out helping this young lady, just Chuck...the homeless guy...thank you Chuck." She added the hashtags #findthekind and #kindnessmatters."

Logan does odd jobs such as sweeping, sanitizing, and doing dishes around the cafe every day for the Davidsons in exchange for meals. "He's a safety net around here," says Davidson.

Logan and the Davidson met during the government shut down last December, when the cafe advertised a special for $2 coffee and beignets.

RELATED: He was a homeless veteran. Karis Village offered him not just a home, but a community.

"We have about 5,000 government workers living in Ogden so when they couldn't work, it was traumatic," Davidson told Yahoo Lifestyle. "We figured, 'If we're going to lose our business, we may as well help people on our way out."

Davidson's husband, and co-owner of the cafe, Ron, was once homeless for two years, so he understands what the economically-disadvantaged in his area are going through. This real-world experience is a major reason why the couple has been so generous to the community.

"I know what it's like to be out there when it's cold, I know what it's like to be out there when it's hot, I know what it's like to be out there hungry," Ron said, according to The Daily Mail.

With the help of donations from the community, they were able to keep the program going, which brought some local homeless to the restaurant, and that's how they met Logan.

The story is a great example of how when one person pays it forward, the ripple effect can go on forever. The Davidsons paid it forward to Logan and Logan passed that kindness over to Michelle. Now who knows will benefit from it next?

It was a mere three weeks ago that President Biden announced that the U.S. would have enough vaccine supply to cover every adult American by the end of July. At the time, that was good news.

Today, he's bumped up that date by two full months.

That's great news.

In his announcement to the nation, Biden outlined the updated process for getting the country immunized against COVID-19.

We're redefining what normal means in these uncertain times, and although this is different for all of us, love continues to transform us for the better.

Love is what united Marie-Claire and David Archbold, who met while taking a photography class. "We went into the darkroom to see what developed," they joke—and after a decade of marriage, they know firsthand the deep commitment and connection romantic love requires.

However, their relationship became even sweeter when they adopted James: a little boy with a huge heart.

In the United States alone, there are roughly 122,000 children awaiting adoption according to the latest report from the U.S Department of Health and Human Services. While the goal is always for a child to be parented by and stay with their biological family, that is not always a possibility. This is where adoption offers hope—not only does it create new families, it gives birth parents an avenue through which to see their child flourish when they are not able to parent. For the right families, it's a beautiful thing.

The Archbolds knew early on that adoption was an option for them. David has three daughters from a previous marriage, but knowing their family was not yet complete, the couple embarked on a two-year journey to find their match. When the adoption agency called and told them about James, they were elated. From the moment they met him, the Archbolds knew he was meant to be part of their family. David locked eyes with the brown-eyed baby and they stared at each other in quiet wonder for such a long time that the whole room fell silent. "He still looks at me like that," said David.

The connection was mutual and instantaneous—love at first sight. The Archbolds knew that James was meant to be a part of their family. However, they faced significant challenges requiring an even deeper level of commitment due to James' medical condition.

James was born with congenital hyperinsulinism, a rare condition that causes his body to overproduce insulin, and within 2 months of his birth, he had to have surgery to remove 90% of his pancreas. There was a steep learning curve for the Archbolds, but they were already in love, and knew they were committed to the ongoing care that'd be required of bringing James into their lives. After lots of research and encouragement from James' medical team, they finally brought their son home.

Today, three-year-old James is thriving, filled with infectious joy that bubbles over and touches every person who comes in contact with him. "Part of love is when people recognize that they need to be with each other," said his adoptive grandfather. And because the Archbolds opted for an open adoption, there are even more people to love and support James as he grows.

"Good evening," Coley answered. "Thank you for calling Sipps!"

A woman on the other end of the line asked, "Is this a gay bar?"

Sipps welcomes everyone, Coley explained to her, but indeed attracts a mostly LGBTQ crowd.
