I have officially spent the last 20 minutes watching and re-watching this video. Smiling from ear-to-ear at the bears playing hide and seek with their owner, eating watermelon, and wearing adorable Santa hats in what I’m sure was the greatest Christmas card of all-time.
But the smile isn’t just because these bears are insanely adorable, it’s also because the man in that picture, Jim Kowalczik, has dedicated his life to saving the lives of orphaned animals. We’re constantly flooded with horrible news stories of people doing some of the worst things imaginable, and here we have a man who has been silently making the world a better place since 1996.
Not all heroes wear capes, some just carry bears on their backs.
