Our modern world provides us with an unlimited access to news from literally everywhere, and there are enough horrible stories to make you lose all hope for humanity.
However, we must keep in mind that news agencies and the media focus on them because they simply sell better than anything else, as sad as this fact is. Nobody is interested in presenting warm and positive news to people.
Feeling that we need to make a change, we provided a list of stories to brighten your day and to prove that not everyone is bad.
1. A little kindness makes a big difference
Evoni Williams is an 18-years old girl working as a waitress in one of Texas’ Waffle House locations. She was photographed by a customer when she cut the steak of an elderly man who asked for assistance. It may seem like something small, but to that man it surely meant a lot.
2. Having a big heart keeps you going
This dude is incredible! He constantly travels around the US to set up adoption campaigns for shelter dogs. He rescued six canines himself and now they live with him in his RV. He works with shelters all over the country and hopes to find home to every rescued dog he sees.
3. Everyone needs attention
A group of elementary school students noticed that the sweet grandma waving at their bus every morning was not on her usual spot for a few consecutive days, so they decided to ask what happened.

4. Adoption day like no other
A boy who was about to get adopted asked from his new family to come and pick him up dressed as superheroes. As you can see, they fulfilled his request and proved there’s nothing greater and stronger than the family bond.

8. This is more than a kind gesture

9. A barber turned to her clients with special needs

11. A high school senior student’s kindness
After a couple of lower grade boys told him they liked his shoes, he said that he’ll get them a pair each. They were probably shocked when he actually did! And the people at Vans were so touched by his kindness that they sent him a gift card so he could be able to do the same for other kids, too.
