From spared strollers to warm meals, people share random acts of kindness by strangers in tough times.
I broke my tailbone while hiking in Cold Spring a couple years ago and a group of strangers literally carried me down a mountain (I don't even remember taking this pic because I was in so much pain but look how nice these folks are!) pic.twitter.com/ZFLtnMA3Rl

My (American) family had just moved to London. My mom was in a grocery store with us kids & an older British woman noticed our accents & struck up a conversation. When we checked out, she was waiting outside with a loaf of her favorite bread to welcome us to the country. https://t.co/DbVs8SM35t

I was homeless. It was in a suburb of Chicago in the winter, well below freezing. I'd not eaten or really slept in days.
A Pakistani family who owned a Dunkin Donuts invited me in, fed me hot soup and donuts.
They very literally saved my life.

My hours were decreased at a former job. Money was incredibly tight. I went to put gas in my car ($11.56) and payed at the register inside. My card got declined and I panicked. A kind lady said “I have kids your age. I know it’s hard.” She paid for me and I cried a lot. https://t.co/5UKnVy7vFH

An older gentleman behind me in checkout bought my daughter roses just because he saw her admiring them. I had JUST gotten out of a brutal divorce and had lost all faith in men. This helped my outlook more than he will ever know. She clutched the roses all the way home. I cried. pic.twitter.com/IaBYTHS4Qn
