15+ Stories of Kindness That Affect Us Like the Sun After the Rain

Good deeds exist in many forms. Some people perform simple acts of kindness for their loved ones, while others give money to strangers in need. All of these stories show that kindness is still in the soul of all humans. They restore our faith in humanity and inspire us to do good as well.

At Bright Side we appreciate stories about kindness with all our heart, so we put together 16 of the sweetest stories and photos that were shared by people online.
