(WXIA) -- Atlanta Alive wanted to give back to the community. So, on Friday, March 27, we did just that as part of our RAK Attack Day! Here are the four stories which helped some very special individuals' lives!

My Random Act of Kindness was for a very incredible 16-year-old young lady in my neighborhood.

Her name is Lauren. She has cerebral palsy and she wants to give CP a voice. So, I thought we all could help her by going to her house and helping her produce a Public Service Announcement for the organization she founded called Make Lemon Aide for Cerebral Palsy.

You can help Lauren out by visiting her websiteor her Facebook page!

So, they're keeping you busy with homework. Tons and tons of homework.

They are the ones who fill the gaps between the grueling cancer treatment and time away from their families.

From the chaplains to the child life specialists to the hospital teachers -- the family support team at the Aflac Cancer Center at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta helps children and their families through each day, giving them some happy kid moments.

We wanted thank them.

They thought they were in this room to get a group photo, which of course, was not true.

We cut to the chase.

Spa Sydell is closing down and hosting the entire team, for a special evening.

They carry these children in their hearts..

There's no need to ask them to pay it forward. They already do.

For my Random Act of Kindness, I wanted to help one of the ladies at the Atlanta Mission. Someone who'd fallen on a bit of bad luck.

I would like to introduce you to Shanterian Russell. After losing her job and exhausting all of her savings, she and he two-year-old daughter, Michaela, bounced around from shelter to shelter.

That's when she decided to come to the Atlanta Mission, where she's been for the last three months.

Shanterian is in a room with 12 other women and their children, which she says, is really just one big family.

I"'m really thankful for the mission," she said. "To give me a place to stay. Give me hope that I can go back out there and find a job soon and move on to my new house."

That's where we come in...Enter the Glam Squad.

Shanterian is able to pick out the clothes, make up and hairstyle she wants to help her get ready for her next job interview.

Chesley McNeil

You first met Terence Lester back in December. He was the local man on a mission to raise money for Atlanta's homeless by living on top of a bus in College Park for a month.

His goal was to renovate the vehicle into a makeover unit for the homeless...and he did just that, thanks to a little help from Chesley McNeil.
