Good Deeds Really Matter

Who says our news media around the world doesn’t report happy stories of help and kindness? I was beginning to doubt it. After skimming through last week’s headlines, I decided to purposely seek out stories of people doing good for others. I was surprised to find that most of those I found came from major news sources. Discovering them allowed me to believe that goodness is still alive in the hearts of men -- and of reporters.

Here are 10 links to happy stories of people doing good to other people, pets and football players. They warmed my heart. I hope they warm yours.

If you have a good news story you'd like to share please include the link in the comments below. We can always have more.
