    3. This neighbor could've stayed inside where it was warm and dry, but they didn't do that.

    damn my neighbor who I’d never met just busted serious ass to help me get my car out the snow so I could get my kids to school and was like ‘I’m from Kenya, we don’t just leave our neighbor to struggle.’ people are just great sometimes.

    4. This person could've saved their money, but instead they bought coffee for a stranger.

    5. This person had every opportunity to just watch the concert with no regard for anyone else, but instead they moved.

    For the very first time in my life, a tall person stood in front of me at a concert, looked back, asked “Can you still see?” and then answered themselves with “Of course you can’t, I’m like 6 feet tall,” and then MOVED. I wish so many blessings on their house

    6. This guy could've stayed home that day, but guess what? HE DIDN'T.

    Chicago, I need (10) volunteers to help me shovel for seniors tomorrow. I’m getting too many emails from elderly folks that need help. Meet me at the 79th St. Red Line stop at 10:00 am tomorrow. I got hoodies, hats and lunch for anybody that comes through. #formyblock

    7. These pizza shop employees could've saved their time AND their ink, but they decided not to.

    The receipt reads: "Please can you write a silly joke on the pizza lids — my 6-year-old loves jokes and is feeling unwell :) thanks"

    8. Every single one of these people could've stayed in their cars and minded their own business, but instead they decided to lend a hand.

    This note was left on the gate at the water this afternoon. No name or number left but whoever you are, rest assured your rose is in place in the middle of the lake.

    "Please can someone throw this into the lake for me? My late husband's ashes are in the lake and I can't get to the lakeside in my wheelchair anymore + gates are locked — have to drive back up north tonight. Thank you x"
