It doesn’t take a pessimist to realize we live in a fallen world.
Bad news sells. Lies, rumors, and negativity spread like wildfire, and no matter how successful we may strive to be, there is no escaping the inevitable disappointment and heartbreak, which is deeply interwoven with every human experience.
But there’s still hope.
While the world may have its flaws, there are still a lot of good things happening among many kind strangers in the world. Whether they’re simple acts of kindness or heroic feats that require considerable effort, courage, and commitment, much of the good goes unseen.
If you need encouragement and inspiration on how YOU can make your world a better place, I’m going to share 50 heartwarming stories (all pulled from r/HumansBeingBros on Reddit) that prove there’s still hope for humanity.

We recently had a death in our family. In our family that usually means families will come over every day for a couple days, ALL DAY. This means at least 25-30 kids outside out of control and wild for the entire day. Today the neighbor rented a bouncy house for the entire day, just for the kids. from r/HumansBeingBros

Hundreds of Bros and Lady-Bros show up at a Detroit hospital to shine flashlights from outside, up to the pediatric patients inside, to wish them a happier (and healthier) holiday season. Crowds of varying sizes do this every evening in December and the kids shine lights back from inside. from r/HumansBeingBros
