15+ Stories That Prove the World Is Filled With Love and Care
When the year ends, we always want to look back, remember the good things that happened, and understand that we had a great 365 days. In fact, if you look around, you will see that the world has a lot of people that are doing everything they can to make other people’s lives better. They do things that help people and animals, and it’s not because there’s something in it for them but just because they can and want to.
We at Bright Side totally believe that most people in the world are good and kind. It is important to be able to see good things and do them for others.

“Dear boys! What a treat it was to receive this letter! I am 2 years and 4 months old and I’m a Sheprador (a mix of Shepherd and Labrador). I’m very friendly and I would love to be friends with you. But I must warn you that the price of my friendship is 5 ball throws a day and belly scratches whenever I demand them.
We understand how hard it is to find pet-friendly rentals. I’d love to hang out with you whenever you fancy. Give my servant Chris a WhatsApp number so we can agree about a meeting. Looking forward to meeting you. Stevie Ticks.”
