The Internet is full of bad news and people who just want to bring others down.
But it’s also full of people sharing heartwarming moments – you just have to know where to look.
We found 60 photos so wholesome they just might temporarily restore your faith in humanity.
It’s hard not to smile or weep with happiness when you see the difference even a small gesture can make.
You might want to get a box of tissues for the more touching stories.
1. Good samaritans
These young men jumped into action when their elderly neighbor, Mr. C, was watching TV and didn’t realize a fire had started in his home.
They saw the smoke from the roof and made sure to alert him, get him out safely, and call the fire department.
The exhaust fan fire caused minimal damage because of how quickly they acted when they saw trouble.
2. Volunteer relatives
This sweet couple is ready to dole out some holiday warmth for anyone alone on Christmas.
They encouraged people to stop in for a free hug if they needed one – no strings attached.
They didn’t even expect visitors to buy anything. In fact, they gave out free mince pies too!
3. Fun is for everyone
At the 2012 Przystanek Woodstock Festival in Poland, a concert-goer in a wheelchair got to experience the joy of crowdsurfing.
The audience carefully lifted him up and made sure he safely got the ride of his life.
What a great way to come together.
4. Small gestures, big payoffs
This woman was so touched by a man’s willingness to loan her a bit of money when she didn’t have change that she took out an ad in the hopes that he would see just what it meant to her.
A handful of change turned out to be worth more than anyone ever imagined.
5. Teacher of the year
Teachers all over the world do selfless things for their students.
But this is really going the extra mile.
Not only is he making sure his student doesn’t feel forgotten, but his actions project confidence about the boy’s future.
6. The extra mile
Being a barista is a pretty thankless job. That’s why we’re always so stunned to see people doing more than they have to for customers.
One person even learned a bit of sign language so that a deaf customer could have the same customer service experience as everyone else.
7. Anything for a best friend
Anything with animals has us reaching for the tissues.
This poor pup is suffering from arthritis. But his owner wants to make sure his pain is alleviated as much as possible, so he takes the dog for a soak and float every day, holding his best bud in his arms.
It’s important to know you’re loved, especially when you’re hurting.
8. There when you need them
Even stray dogs can make loveable gestures.
This person was sitting alone on a bus bench in a bad mood. And a pup came by out of the blue to offer a helping paw.
They say petting a dog can help alleviate stress and produce good-mood hormones. Do you think this pooch is up-to-date on the latest research?
9. Be a Dick
This is Dick. Dick mows the lawns of his new neighbors to help welcome them to the neighborhood.
He doesn’t even tell them he’s going to do it. He just makes the effort as a way to take one thing off their to-do list.
Be like Dick.
10. Heart to heart
What a remarkable moment.
While it’s heartwrenching to see these parents remember their lost daughter, now they know she lives on in someone else – someone grateful enough to reach out to them and make this gesture.
This woman’s gratitude to her parents is so sweet. And she knows that without their hard work and support she couldn’t have made her dreams come true.
In her Facebook caption, she wrote:
‘With love I dedicate my Master’s degree to my parents. Your sacrifices of coming to this country to give us a better future if it was worth it.”
12. Being there
We love the sweet effort this dad is making to be with his kids for their nighttime ritual.
Despite being busy traveling, he found the time to read them a story.
Technology can be a curse, but in cases like these, it’s certainly a blessing.
13. A sense of community
So many of us choose not to stop when we see someone struggling. We think someone else will help, or we might be afraid to step in.
But it’s people like this man who make the world a brighter place.
Without hesitating, he made sure this woman got safely across the street and was sheltered from the hail during a bad storm.
14. A moment in time
Have you ever caught a sweet moment between two strangers with your camera?
This person not only snapped a photo of a boyfriend’s kind gesture, but they made sure the pair got a copy.
We bet that one is in a frame somewhere!
15. The helpers
When a single mother was hospitalized, the police stayed behind to clean up the house and made sure her kids had a warm dinner.
That’s certainly not the kind of story you hear about every day.
Even if it was a slow night, this is an incredible act of kindness – and one that no-doubt helped a whole family through a traumatic time.
16. Respond with love
Some people are incredible – incredibly rude for the hateful things they say to strangers online just because they can hide behind a computer, but also incredibly inspirational when the person being attacked responds with love and kindness.
As you can see, the hateful person is really just in a self-loathing place.
And while no one should be expected to respond to cyber-bullies with kindness, just look at what happens when they do!
17. Flower grannies
Couples often use their weddings to honor special members of their family. And that’s already going above and beyond on what’s supposed to be your own special day.
We love this idea of having two grandmothers act as flower girls.
It gives them a chance to be in the wedding party – AND you don’t have to worry about wrangling a toddler into the job!
18. News you can use
Now this is the kind of news story we could get used to.
When the world seems full of reasons to frown, this kid realized that his smile might be a bright spot in someone’s day while they were doomscrolling.
We love his attitude!
19. It’s the little things
It doesn’t take much to be kind, but how many of us would go out of our way to cover a person’s open sunroof in the rain?
Most of us would steer clear of going near someone else’s car altogether.
But in this case, they were incredibly grateful for the gesture.
20. Taking action
We sure wish THIS online challenge would take off.
Anyone can post a photo of a problem. But what’s really important is doing something about it.
And this kind soul decided the try and start a trend of beautifying spaces.
21. Furry friends
We don’t typically think of cats and rabbits as friends, but these two were raised together.
And their bond is so strong that the cat realized when the bunny needed help and offered it up.
If animals can be this kind, then humans have no excuse (though that doesn’t mean you have to groom your friends).
22. Never forget
This wonderfully accomplished and hard-working woman took enough pride in every job she ever had to keep a memento from the workplace.
Now, she has a visual timeline of her accomplishments.
And, my, how far she’s come!
23. Making space
Cats tend to think just about any warm space belongs to them.
But while passengers on this piece of public transportation could have kicked it off, instead they let it be.
They figured it was first come, first served, no matter what your species.
24. Inclusive igloo
We rarely consider just how hard the world is to navigate if you’re not able-bodied.
But kids should have the opportunity for winter fun no matter what their situation. That’s why we love this wheelchair-friendly snow fort.
Now these are parents who go the extra mile!
25. Gone to the dogs
We couldn’t help but smile when tourists visiting a castle found its resident dog more alluring instead.
Everyone stopped to give him a pet – and he looked perfectly happy to collect them.
Sometimes you just have to stop what you’re doing when you see a good boy.
26. Cross-cultural comraderie
What a beautiful gesture.
Knowing how important it was for his Muslim friend to have a place to pray, this Sikh man built him his own little mosque.
That’s more than what friends are for!
27. Good deeds
Not every story involving an officer is a happy one, but this will warm your heart.
After responding to a call about a teen breaking into a gym, a Chicago cop decided to intervene in a helpful way.
There were no handcuffs. In fact, he found a better deterrent – buying the teen a membership.
28. Serving the community
This restaurant cares about all members of its local community, from customers to canines.
In fact, they even pay to keep their heaters on at night so pups have a warm place to sleep.
People really surprise us sometimes with their kind gestures.
29. A teaching moment
This professor decided that in order to help his student learn, he’d take a load off of him and hold his baby.
He had to bring the child to class after the sitter fell through.
But instead of acting like the kid was a burden, this teacher proved that it takes a village.
30. Seeing yourself in others
Many of us take for granted that we fit into the world quite neatly.
But when you’re surrounded by people who don’t look like you, it can be very alienating.
This little guy got to see a soccer player with the same disability that he had – and we have no doubt that it raised his confidence, even at such a young age.
31. The real MVP
Winning isn’t everything. Sometimes a kind gesture like this kiddo made to a competitor having a hard time is what makes you the real champ.
This young man was running fast until he noticed another boy having trouble.
32. Airplane assist
Having a crying baby on an airplane will get you all sorts of reactions – most of them negative.
But rather than get stressed out and giving the mom nearby the side-eye, this wonderful woman decided to give her a hand instead.
And she really went above and beyond – even after the flight!
33. Kitty convention
Most of us can’t just take stray cats into our homes, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to help.
This person decided that any cat wandering outside could have a warm place to sleep at their house.
The bonus is they get to look at sweet kittens whenever they look outside!
34. Still a family
Divorce is tough. But it’s made much easier when parents can come together for the good of their children.
This mom and dad didn’t need their rings anymore, but they managed to turn them into a symbol of love for the one accomplishment they’ll always be grateful for.
35. Paying it forward
To make parking easier, a driver left a note on their car saying folks could park around them and block them in.
And it clearly helped someone. In fact, they went out of their way to leave their own note acknowledging the generous gesture.
It’s something we don’t talk about very often, but this shows a group of truckers and emergency responders working together to save a man’s life.
He was threatening to jump, but by parking their trucks underneath him, they gave him another chance at life.
37. Old school
How charming is this?!
See, it really does mean the world to your grandparents when you just reach out with a kind message.
In fact, it meant so much to these two that they printed and framed a text message!
38. Hoping for a helping hand
We hope the woman who left this note saw the tweet showing that someone followed through on the favor she asked.
Imagine not being able to make the gesture you want to your dearly departed because a lakefront isn’t accessible to you in any way.
It must have been heartbreaking, but her rose ended up as a tribute in the end.
39. Endless love
We love a lighthearted couple. These two duke it out via video game every day to see who is going to make tea.
Hey, sometimes you have to get creative to keep the spark lit!
We love it!
40. Thanking a hero
This poor pup needed some extensive medical help after suffering burns on its body.
And it appears he never forgot the vet who saved his life.
In fact, their reunion has made viewers shed more than a few tears.
Would you give a stranger a jump? How about if they were in an electric scooter?
It’s easier to just keep driving by, but we all need some serious assistance sometimes.
Just remember that next time you see someone in need.
42. It’s the little things
A quick helping hand to a woman having trouble getting her vegetables into a plastic bag was enough to warm the heart of a bystander.
There are helpers everywhere. And while we don’t always advocate posting photos of them on the Internet without their permission, we hope this at least had an effect on some people the next time they went shopping.
43. Hard work pays off
It’s a travesty when hard workers can’t afford basic needs.
This man went so far above and beyond to make it to his job every day that his co-workers made an equally enormous gesture to ensure he could do it safely from there on out.
Now that’s generosity!
44. Dogs get it
Dogs really do seem to have a sense of compassion.
This man had dogs at one point but can’t care for one anymore, so he visits the dog park instead.
And the pups give him all the love he needs when he arrives.
45. Tummy trust
When a couple found an abandoned puppy on the side of the road, they took the time to earn his trust without scaring him.
The husband even got down on the road and showed him some tummy just to prove that he wasn’t a threat.
The look on this pup’s face is priceless.
46. Making changes
After they saw him struggling to change a bike tire, these police officers assisted a boy in fixing his bike.
That’s the kind of community service we expect from our police!
We’re happy to see it.
47. A father’s love
A long-time pilot switched airlines before his retirement just to have a chance to co-pilot with his two daughters who had followed in his footsteps.
It’s a real family affair up in the air when you get on this plane.
We love how happy everyone looks to be together.
48. A big gesture
When a man needed a kidney, he reached out to everyone he knew, including his high school classmates from long ago.
And despite not being close for 50 years, one of them came through.
What a sacrifice!
40. Acting as eyes
Now this is love.
After her husband lost his eyesight, his wife didn’t let that stop him from experiencing beauty.
Now she lovingly describes things to him in great detail so he can imagine what’s in front of him.
50. An expensive Christmas
After realizing she wouldn’t be with family on Christmas, a man bought a ticket for each of his flight attendant daughter’s flights for the day so he could be with her.
It doesn’t matter how old you get, parents will still do just about anything for you.
51. No more longing
After a photo of a shoeshine boy and Syrian refugee staring longingly into a gym went viral in Turkey, the gym in question decided to offer him a membership.
It’s a luxury he would never have been able to afford. And it looks like he’s putting their generosity to good use.
52. Coping with loss
A man uprooted by the wildfires in Paradise, California two years ago got one piece of good news.
His dog – who he thought had run away for good or gotten hurt – was recovered alive and well.
While he experienced lots of loss, the most important thing was found.
53. You gotta represent
It’s hard for kids to navigate a world in which they feel as though no one looks like them.
This man decided to help kids like himself by creating dolls with the skin condition vitiligo.
Now it doesn’t seem so out of the ordinary and will no doubt be a confidence boost.
54. A family unit
When mom needed a break after having twins, a big brother stepped in to participate in the nurturing skin-to-skin contact that benefits babies so much.
Not only was he helping out his dad, but no doubt he’ll have a stronger bond with his new brother or sister as a result.
55. Closed for kindness
Closing a restaurant temporarily can be expensive.
But we have no doubt they did great business after people read just why they had to close for a few weeks.
It’s amazing to see that kind of gesture made in the service industry – and it should happen more often to the people who serve us so well.
56. A sweet surrogate
These two found each other at just the right time after experiencing a devastating loss.
We don’t know exactly how this sweet scene came to be, but we’re so glad they found one another and were given the chance to help the other heal.
57. Hey there, foxy
We couldn’t help but smile at this little lovelorn fox.
He doesn’t realize that the object of his affection is indeed just an object. But it hardly matters that she lights up.
That only makes him love her more.
58. Dreamy date
It’s hard to pull off dressing like a fairy in public, but this couple is rocking it.
How romantic to take your partner for a boat ride each year on the same day. And how wonderful to let her play out her fantasies without judgment.
59. Liver laugh
An organ transplant is no joke, but it certainly helps to have a sense of humor if you’re going through it.
Just check out the matching shirts these two got after the big operation.
We hope they don’t bust a stitch while laughing together!
60. A special Santa
These kids had no idea just how generous their bus driver was preparing to be the year he asked them all what they wanted for Christmas.
He bought every one of those children a gift – including a bike for one!
We can only imagine that it made his Christmas extra special too just seeing those smiles.
It turns out there’s still plenty of good in the world.
You just have to know where to look.

Lazy People Solutions That Defy Common Sense
There’s the right way of doing things, and then there’s the wrong way of doing things. But how can a solution be wrong when it’s faster? This is how.
Every day, we go through small internal battles. We argue with ourselves over doing things right or doing things fast. The 40 people ahead all opted to do things fast. And the consequences came even faster as a result!
It’s as good as new.
If you look closely, you’ll be able to see that some of the column uses new wood. Thanks to this restoration, the roof that the column’s holding up should stay in place for weeks. Warning: Do not play Jenga with this!
For once, the sockets are making the right expression
Drilling metal screws into the plugs? What could possibly go wrong? The weird thing about this one is that it actually took some effort to do something so stupid.
Calm down, there’s some plastic tape. No one could possibly walk over the gap with that tape in place. Right?
10+ People That Had No Idea How Attractive They Were Until They Worked To Improve Themselves
Sometimes when your health is out of balance you can’t see yourself clearly. When people struggle with something physical, like weight, they can’t always see how beautiful they really are. These people didn’t even realize how attractive they were until they worked on themselves, but now they can celebrate their appearances every day.
These 30 people have powerful stories, and their transformations are absolutely amazing. Their messages are so inspiring.
“I lost 100 lbs, and I feel great.”
“It took me 2 years and 3 months to get in shape. It sounds like a lot of time, but it was well worth it.”
“I made true friends, and they helped me to have a more active lifestyle. That’s how I managed to lose weight. Now I can communicate with any person.”
“The difference between these 2 photos is 4 years. And I was even used to not enjoying what I looked like.”
“Me when I was 19 and 21.”
“I was depressed because of the way I looked. I didn’t even want to live. But I decided that I was able to change everything, so I started losing weight… I feel great, and I’m enjoying my life!”
“I didn’t use to be really fat. I had a hard time choosing the right hairstyle.”
“I used to weigh 60 lb, now I weigh 90, and I keep working on my body.”
“3 years between these photos. Some people don’t believe that it’s me.”
“So much has changed in 3 years! Before, I didn’t get out much. I was very shy. Now we live in a time when changing your appearance is very easy.”
“Just 4 years, and this is what I’ve become (I’m on the right).”
“I didn’t do anything special, but I’m not ugly anymore.”
“I restored what was destroyed by 20 years of McDonald’s and Coke.”
“15 months later I finally have a chin! Now I’m doing everything I can to maintain my weight.”
“I lost 100 lb, and I keep working on my body.”
“The difference is just 4 years. I was a nerd, and now I’m a macho.”
“The difference between these photos is 25 months. I had always been fat, so I decided that I could lose weight.”
“My weight was 330 lb when I finally decided to start losing weight… But now I have a new goal — 180 lb. I’ve started my way to it! I wish you luck too.”
“The difference between these photos is 20 months. I lost weight, and now I’m not shy about the natural structure of my hair.”
“This is my progress.”
“Now I am 25, I lost 120 lb, and I work out every day.”
“This is my boyfriend at the age of 16 and 21. It’s hard to tell that it’s the same person.”
“I knew I owed it to my son to try to break the family tree of obesity. There are so many compromises to being an obese parent: I was simply forfeiting the ability to participate in so many wonderful moments.”
“As the pounds started to come off, I noticed a change, but others didn’t — until the day I appeared outside of my office standing up.”
“My goal is to train and inspire people to show them that the weight loss is possible.”
“My dad pushed me and motivated me to start working out. He would tell me he wanted me to be around for a long time.”

50 Cringeworthy Fashion Fails We Can’t Believe People Didn’t Notice
Not all of us are fashion experts. This is why we try to experiment and mix and match clothes to see if we can look more stylish. Unfortunately, the more we try to look more fashionable, the more we end up failing. The risky fashion choice we make often leaves us looking ridiculous and weird in other people’s eyes.
Fortunately, fashion disasters aren’t always bad. In fact, they can be transformed into little entertainment and also a warning for others to never try to copy them.
Here are the most cringe-worthy fashion fails you need to see this year:
1. Brown logo on white shoes
In theory, putting a brown logo on a white background will make a product look classy. In reality, a brown logo on white shoes just looks like bird poo from afar.
2. A not-so-comfortable evening dress
This is probably one of the most uncomfortable dresses you’ll see. I don’t think you’ll have a great time wearing this to a party or anywhere.
3. When you accidentally stepped on something
This is actually a good pair of shoes if you always walk on mud or dirt. You won’t have to worry about cleaning your shoes. Plus, its design can work as camouflage for when you accidentally stepped on your dog’s poo.
Will you give up or will you never give up? Well, it’s a good shirt to wear if you still can’t decide. At least, you’re letting other people know where you stand.
