Burger King sells gay pride Whopper

Have you heard about the "Proud Whopper?" It's a regular version of the sandwich in a rainbow-colored wrapper (and there's also a rainbow crown too).

Burger King announced Wednesday it was selling the Proud Whopper at a San Francisco location through July 3. The only restaurant offering the burger is located on Market Street, which is along the route of the city's pride parade.

"Guests who ordered the Proud Whopper sandwich were surprised because it is in fact, the same iconic fire-grilled Whopper sandwich beloved since 1957, but wrapped in rainbow-colored paper inscribed with a message reading: "We Are All The Same Inside," the company wrote in a news release.

In addition, a YouTube video launched Wednesday on Burger King's YouTube channel (WARNING: Some foul language use) has been shared across social media.

The company pledged all sales from the burger would be donated to the Burger King McLamore Foundation for scholarships benefiting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender high school seniors graduating in spring 2015.

Woman's act of kindness in South Dakota shared across the globe

For Carol Flynn, it was nothing more than a small gesture of generosity. But her decision to help a young mom pay the diaper bill ended up touching the hearts of people around the world.

Flynn, 73, saw the woman at her local Walmart in South Dakota. The mom was planning to buy four boxes of diapers for her 4-month-old son, but when she found out the store would match a competitor's price for only one box, she set the other three aside.

That's when Flynn swooped in and offered to pay for all four boxes.

The random act of kindness and private moment between two women was captured on camera by another person in line, Jason Yoshino. The clip has been shared more than 7,500 times.
