People can be total assholes, but that's no reason to lose hope in them. These wonderful photos will restore your faith in humanity and remind you that perhaps we aren't all that bad, after all. An act of kindness that you ask people to pay forward instead of back can travel a long, long way!

We love to see wonderful examples of human kindness, so if you've got a picture that belongs on this list, we'd love to see it! Upvote your favorites, too!
