At the Israeli airport, the helium welcome balloons don’t go to waste. They are collected and donated to children in hospitals.

A beautifully filmed, heartwarming video about what happens to the wayward balloons kissing the ceiling in the Arrivals Hall at Tel Aviv’s Ben-Gurion International Airport has been watched over one million times since being posted on January 19, 2017.

Yedioth Ahronoth, a daily news service in Israel, made a video about the airport’s balloon catchers – following one employee given the task on this day to fish down the runaway balloons for donation to pediatric patients at a nearby hospital.

In the video, an employee named Samita uses double-sided tape and a helium-filled balloon of her own and patiently guides it to the lost ones on the ceiling above to bring them down one by one.
