Ever seen the movie “Pay it Forward”? The one where a boy decides to be paying a favor not back, but forward – repaying good deeds not with payback, but with new good deeds done to three new people. There is something just so powerful about unexpected acts of kindness that even the least emotional people can’t stay untouched by such acts. Stories of doing something selfless for strangers are still rare enough to make the headlines or go viral on the Internet.

With Christmas getting closer, the holiday mood can be spread in more ways than just buying gifts of decorating a tree. Sparing a couple of minutes to do at least a small kind deed will not only cheer up somebody else, but also leave you with a very rewarding feeling as well. If you gather a group of friends, maybe you could even organize something bigger? Let us know if you do! In the meantime, here are some random acts of kindness that left us teary-eyed. Take a look!
