20+ Times People Restored Our Faith in Humanity With Their Generosity

It’s no doubt that we live in a fast-paced world where we’re often left with very little time to help others. However, some people have proven that it’s always possible to offer a hand and make someone else’s day with a kind gesture.

1. “Go, Willie!”

2. “I AM BLOWN AWAY. The generosity of this person is on another level. Came across it on my delivery route. If you see this, we love you!!”

3. “A pizza shop owner being a pizza bro”

4. “A Reddit stranger drove 2 hours and used his drone to recover Meadow, who was lost in the woods for 10 days.”

5. “My wife and I couldn’t get our baby to stop crying at the restaurant, so we embarrassingly started to pack up to go home when the couple sitting next to us offered their help. Our baby slept on this kind stranger’s shoulder the entire evening!”

6. “In Norway, you get a small amount of money for recycling bottles/cans. Poor and homeless people often collect them. Many of our trash cans have these holders around them so people don’t have to search through the trash to find them.”

7. “Saw this guy buying ALL of the remaining Santa hats. When I asked what he was buying them for, he said, ’I do this every year after Christmas and donate them to children’s hospitals for next year.’”

8. “This restaurant offers food for free if you can’t afford it.”

9. “A year ago, my little sister left this world. This weekend, her heart recipient met my mom and shared her heartbeat.”

10. “I got a flat and, although my boyfriend was on the phone trying to help, I was struggling to loosen the lug nuts. Then these guys came up. They spoke limited English but gestured toward the tire. They put my spare on and I was back on the road in no time. I thanked them and tried to offer them a tip to no avail.”

11. “She crocheted all these hats for a local shelter! It’s absolutely incredible!”

12. “Our neighbor doesn’t have Wi-Fi, so we talked her through joining ours. Once on, she received 70 messages from her children living overseas.”

13. “My mom’s purse was stolen in the ’80s at a hiking trailhead. Today someone messaged her that they found it deep in the woods. The leather was all destroyed, but she is getting some cool keepsakes back.”

14. “After bad storms, this retired man goes around our neighborhood and cleans the debris out of yards in catch basins. When I asked him why he does it, he said, ’Because I am retired and have the time to help.’ 10/10 great dude.”

20. “A sign at my local laundromat”

21. “After a wildfire destroyed my family’s home in Lytton, these firefighters saved the animals that were left behind by bringing them food and water.”
