Each one of us wishes that we were kinder, more generous, and did more deeds in this world. That’s why every single year we make New Year’s resolutions. Each of us secretly and openly wants to be better. The unfortunate part about all of this is that all too often we say what we want to do but don’t actually go out and do it. But today we’re so glad to bring you a visual story of a woman who decided that for a 30 day period she would do something kind for another human being.
The acts were by no means “huge.” They are proof that you can make a difference in people’s lives just by taking action. Simply by getting out there and doing something for the greater good. Unfortunately we don’t know this woman’s name but she posted her generosity on Imgur and here is her Reddit Address.
Enjoy this collection of good deeds and get out there and do something!
