When Fidencio Sanchez pushed his ice cream cart to work again on Monday, he showed the world his resiliency in light of several recent tragedies in his life.

Thanks to a stranger setting him up a GoFundMe page to help the 89-year-old to retire and pay for his family's healthcare costs, he is now over $283,000 richer and can finally empty out the ice cream cart for the last time.

Here he is on a Facebook Live session, getting some of the fame he deserves:

Hey, remember that stupid, viral challenge a few summers ago that had celebrities and your weird aunt on Facebook alike dumping a bucket of ice water over their heads? A lot of people at the time criticized it for being the same kind of "slacktivism" as a filter on your profile picture or a status update. Well, for once, we have good news. THIS ACTUALLY DID SOMETHING. According to the ALS Association, this trend raised $115 million, $77 million went to research which so far has found at least three new gene variants that can be linked to ALS. Here's a nifty infographic showing what happened after people started dousing themselves in ice water.

The limited edition doughy treat is filled with the popular Nutella sandwich spread and, according a 'leaked memo' PR stunt from the brand, is set to be available nationwide on 27 May.

Krispy Kreme is giving fans the chance to preview the Nutty Chocolatta until 21 May by way of the Hole in the Wall contraption.

Devised by Devries Slam and delivered by creative technology agency Kerve, the system allows passers-by to touch their contactless card to a reader and pay two pounds for their individually-wrapped doughnut. This is presented on a cushion accessed only when a door opens after payment.All proceeds from the activation will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust.
