ISIS. Syria. Dallas. Brexit. Trump. There seems to be so much bad stuff going on in the world right now that it's easy to forget that awesome things also happen every day on this planet of ours. Which is why we've decided to bring you this inspirational list of amazing kids who are each making the world a better place in their own special way.

Compiled by Bored Panda, the pictures below serve to remind us that no matter what's going on around us, there's always some kid rescuing ducklings from a drainpipe or saving up his pocket money to buy peanut butter for shelter dogs. With kids like these, the future's looking bright.

I saw a story of a little blonde boy with very long hair, who put up with people teasing him and calling him a girl, all the while he was growing it that long so he could donate it. AMAZING kid!
