    6. This one comes with a sweet story — when a boy was sad about not being able to have a birthday party, artists Jan and Olivia Riggins left him this as a pick-me-up:

    7. I love the story here, too — a math teacher left some math questions on the sidewalk and ended up bonding with an Amazon delivery guy over them:
