    2. Bob Shellard, who went above and beyond to show his wife how much he cares for her:

    Due to coronavirus precaution, Bob Shellard isn't allowed to visit his wife in her Connecticut nursing home. So he stood outside her window and held up a sign that said "I've loved you 67 years and still do. Happy Anniversary."

    3. This very nice neighbor who is willing to do whatever they can to help:

    5. This thoughtful donation that the Staples Center made after the cancellation of arena events:

    This afternoon STAPLES Center donated 7,000 pounds of food that would have been wasted due to the recent suspension of events at the arena. Donations were made to both The Midnight Mission and Los Angeles Mission Men’s Center both located in downtown Los Angeles.

    11. This extremely thoughtful school librarian:
