15 Stories Proving That There Is Much More Kindness in This World Than It May Seem

No matter how much we keep claiming that the world is unjust, there will always be a place for kindness on our planet. Every day, something good happens somewhere in the world and these acts of compassion and generosity do not go unnoticed.

We at Bright Side collected 15 cases of some very touching moments that prove that humans can be very caring.

14. An employee at a Chinese police station feeds the service dogs while they wait patiently in line.

13. A homeless man found important documents in the trash and returned it to the owner, ultimately saving his life.

The owner was robbed on the street and his bag with his documents was thrown away. If this homeless man hadn’t returned them, the owner’s scheduled heart surgery would’ve been canceled.
