It’s easy to lose faith in humanity these days. But don’t give up. Take a look at these people who are making a difference in the lives of others and focus on the blessings they’ve brought to the world.
1) When You See A Stranger Struggle
This older gentleman saw the younger one struggling with his tie at the subway station. He quickly stepped in to help him out, not knowing him or where he was heading. Could be a job interview or a wedding, it didn’t matter to him.
2) Only You Can Prevent Them
This is what one looks like after a 32-hour shift. He sat down and within seconds he was asleep. That’s pure exhaustion. We can’t forget about the work that people like this man put it for us.
3) The Job Suits Him
This firefighter saved this cat, gave him oxygen, and became his best friend all in the same afternoon. You can see the empathy in his eyes and it’s almost too much to bear. He sure does love cats.
4) It Doesn’t Take Much
All this lady did was keep herself busy while riding the bus. She pulled out a sewing kit and fixed the headrest while on her way to her destination. It wasn’t her job but she stepped up to make things better for others.
5) He’s A Bird Lord
This guy came home to find birds that hand built a nest in his bike pack. He swore he would take the bus to work for as long as they live there. Now that’s a sacrifice that not many would make.
6) That Dog Is Happy About It
No one knows who did this which makes it that much better. They left a basket of tennis balls at the local dog park at Christmastime to give the dogs a little something to do and a gift to take home.
7) We All Have That Fear
The vet tech broke all of the pills in half for these people so they didn’t accidentally overdose their dog or have to break them all themselves. That is a sweet and thoughtful gesture from the heart.
8) No Words Needed
This picture speaks a thousand words. Her feet were hurting from her shoes so he have her his and now he’s walking home barefoot. This is the kind of sacrifices a relationship needs.
9) He Found Everyone
This dad spent over three months before Christmas collecting bottles with everyone’s names on them. That’s the kind of man who should be the patriarch of the family, a thoughtful mind and kind heart.
10) More Than Acquaintances
This guy started a new job at a metal plant and complained that his feet were killing him. But when asked why he didn’t get different shoes, he said he’d rather take care of his family than his feet. So his coworkers went it together and got him nice boots.
11) Give Her A Name
This person went to the airport to pick their niece up on Christmas and the staff told them that someone threw away a kitten. Of course, he took her home and now that cat lives with her new family.

13) We’re All Kids Inside
This man hadn’t gotten a toy for Christmas in fifty years. This is him putting together a Lego logging tractor set his son-in-law got him. Turns out we all have a little playfulness inside.

15) The Look In Her Eyes
It had always been this mom’s dream to go to Key West. For Their 24th wedding anniversary, her husband took her to see the ocean sunset. And who ever said that romance is dead in marriage?
16) Keep Them Busy
This is a wonderful way to keep the kids busy while you shop. Offer them free fruit to snack on with their parent’s approval. No parent will say no to a banana or apple at the grocery store.
17) Is This Santa?
This isn’t a Hallmark community project, this is the works of one man. He sets up a tree and fills it with anything people in the community might need and says take what you need. he doesn’t guard it, just keeps it full.

19) Best Server Ever
This server cut up this elderly man’s ham after he said his hands weren’t working too good. He was on oxygen and having trouble breathing as well. This is good service and should be implemented everywhere.
20) Especially For The Dogs
This street covers the sidewalks in blankets for stray dogs to sleep on. They attract a lot of attention and everyone loves it. Poor things probably get food given to them as well if this is where they stay.
21) He Was Born This Way
This guy was born with two fingers missing. When he was little, his mom would make gloves for him like this. When he was 30, she brought those memories back by altering this pair for him.
22) Is There A Doctor?
Four hours into a flight from Spain to NYC, a kid was suffering an asthma attack. His medicine was in a checked bag. Thankfully, a surgeon was on board and made him a nebulizer that he will probably keep forever.
23) Frida La Perrita
This is Frida, she’s a rescue dog that’s way cooler than any of us will ever be. She wears goggles, gloves, and is an excellent swimmer. She’s even a Marine, so yeah, she’s the most amazing dog ever.
24) That’s Some Tip
A stranger tipped this man $200 and his wife cried her eyes out. They got to have their first real Christmas with a decorated tree and great presents. This is the magic of Christmas that we should remember all year long.

26) A Love Story
This isn’t your typical love story, this love story tells the tale of an officer who saved a girl in ’98 and ended up a father figure who was at her college graduation. Now that will make you tear up.
27) Reddit Wins Again
Redditors got together and sent this guy a whole load of Tonka trucks, his favorite. They even made a custom “Max’s Hummer” which is his name. This is the sweetest thing they could have done for him.
28) Mini-Libraries Should Be A Thing

30) Play It, Fiddler
When this baby started crying, this guy played his violin to cheer her up. He played it the entire subway ride because when he stopped, she started crying. Now that is quite the man who probably has kids of his own.
31) She Saved Christmas

32) He Almost Didn’t Make It
This guy saved 30 people in a Vegas shooting before he was shot in the neck. He literally risked his neck for strangers and almost sacrificed himself in the process. He’s the real MVP.
33) Best Friends Forever
This dog was hit by a car and left for dead. After coming home from the vet, his kid cuddled with him for hours to bring him comfort through the pain. Now that’s a well-bonded pair.
34) Like A Beached Whale
These grandparents saved a beached whale that had washed up on shore during their vacation. It’s just a baby and wouldn’t have survived without their help. This is a couple doing their part.

36) Are You Crying Yet?

37) Better Than A Tree
This couple spent all of their Christmas tree money on adopting this cat and getting her stuff, so they built a Christmas “tree” for her. Who needs gifts when you have a love like this?

Someone built a house for strays in the forest complete with water bowls and all the necessities. Now people can make sure the bowls are filled because everything else is already done.
