24 Pics Proving, Once Again, That the World Is Full of Kind Hearts

2 years ago

A quote attributed to author Ian Maclaren says, “Be pitiful, for every man is fighting a hard battle.” This is a great reminder for us to be compassionate to the people — and even the animals — around us. Whether it’s a simple or grand gesture, kindness is a language that everyone understands and appreciates. And it usually goes a long way since those who receive it tend to pay it forward.

Bright Side found 24 aww-worthy photos that prove there are still a lot of good people out there.

1. “A street cleaner feeding stray dogs”

2. “Took a chance and decided to rehabilitate this boy instead of letting him be put down. One of the best decisions of my life.”

3. “The heat index was 110°F, so we offered him a cold drink. He went for a full-body soak instead.”

4. “I’m a cook in a restaurant. Someone told our hostess to give these to every employee and then immediately left.”

Part of the note reads: “If you are in need this Christmas season, please take this and get something for you or your loved one that you would not normally get. If you are not in need, please give it to someone in need.”

5. “My daughter always received comments about her ’princess hair.’ But she got her hair cut and donated the hair to ’Locks of Love.’”

6. “Ready to be put outside for the busy delivery drivers and postmen. I hope they like it and wish I could see their smiles.”

7. “It’s been 7 months since I found Merlin. He was dirty and had clogged femoral pores when I got him.”

“He’s now much healthier and happier.”

8. “I got a flat tire and was struggling. 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 cash, but they didn’t accept the money.”

9. “We saved 3 bulldogs from being put down. 2 have been adopted, and the third will be staying with me. Life is good.”

10. “I made these windows bird-friendly to help the bird population from declining.”

11. “What a foster home can do for a sick cat — now Misza is enjoying his retirement after being neglected for 15 years.”

12. “I made a chocolate cheesecake with Braille for my partner’s birthday.”

“She enjoyed it! The Braille was actually legible. I may have gotten some happy tears for this one.”

13. “Every time I️ come to my gym, this man is helping this employee with calculus.”

14. “The hospital let my dog stay with me after brain surgery.”

15. “This little furball was abandoned by his mama. Heard him squeaking from under my shed. Safe to say he’s got a new mama now!”

16. “Bought a grabber tool so I can collect garbage on my walks. I pick up 1-2 bags every time. Even little bits help.”

17. “An elderly man stopped by our table and gave us a coupon for a free meal. A little kindness goes a long way.”

18. “A blind customer at the store I work at gave me this cute ’guide dog’ keychain because I helped him with his shopping!”

The text on the keychain means “currently working” or “on duty.”

19. “We took him in from the shelter that found him — from a scrawny stray to a lovely house kitty.”

20. “My daughter was bullied for playing the game, Fortnite. I asked the Reddit community to help cheer her up, and this is the result.”

21. “A lady at my job handed me $10 and said, ’This is for your lunch today.’ Have a good weekend, everyone!”

22. “Over a year ago, I posted a picture of myself out of my wheelchair, despite my insecurities.”

24. “Before and after — what a transformation!”
