Acts of Kindness
That Will Restore
Your Faith in Humanity
By RJ Firmeza
It’s easy to feel down and think that everything is going to shit these days. I mean, a quick scan on your feed is enough to feel hopeless. Is it because we are more connected now than before? Have these things been going on and it’s just now that we have social media that we are exposed to these horrible acts against humanity?
But hold on! Maybe it’s just our insatiable appetite for the sensational and shocking that’s driving us towards these things. So, let’s take some time to see other news that’s out there.
Here are a couple of clips that will, hopefully, restore your faith in humanity.
Paying it forward
Sometimes, a small ripple is all it takes to see change in the world.
The good apples
Cops do good too.
Be like kids
Kids don’t discriminate. Until we teach them to.
This refugee who knows the value of good deeds
There are some things that we can’t just afford to lose, and this Syrian refugee pays it forward.
Sometimes, you just need to initiate the act of bravery and everyone else will follow.
Classmates help out a fellow classmate
We found out from JR’s family that he does have shoes that fit him, but he refuses to stop wearing the boots of his beloved grandfather, since his grandfather can no longer wear them. JR was wearing the boots (size 10 1/2) the day he told the boys that he really needed a size 13! But that’s how all this Christmas season of giving good cheer got started!!
Feeling the Holiday blues?
Not after you see this clip.
Somerset HS student JR Gilbert wears size 10 shoes, but his foot is actually a size 13. So fellow Somerset Bulldogs students raised money to surprise JR on Friday, December 15 with not one but TWO brand new pairs of sneakers that are the right size for Christmas!
Grab a tissue… because THIS is the Magic of Christmas! 🎅🏼🎄

Lonely homeless man
Sometimes all we really need is someone who’s willing to listen.
The man in the subway
Give. Even if it’s literally the shirt off your back.
