Kindness is one of the qualities that distinguishes a person. Kind people go out of their way to help others because it’s the right thing to do, not because they have to. Genuinely good individuals perform random acts of kindness quietly, with no expectation of a reward. Do read this heartwarming story that will make your day.
There are some people that always do the right thing no matter what their situation is in life. One of these real-life heroes is 11-year-old Vince Hietpas who was walking around a park with his dad Lorenzo when they found a wallet on the ground.
The father and son, from Green Bay, Wisconsin, checked inside and found a driver’s license with an address. Vince visited the address to return the wallet to its rightful owner only to be rewarded in a way he would never have imagined.
Chase Dahlke, 17, was the owner of the wallet; when Vince phoned, he was out, so his father Jason thanked Vince but only had a few dollars to offer to the trustworthy fifth student.
Jason expressed that he was still astonished that anybody could do such a lovely thing.
When Chase’s stepmother learned of Vince’s act of compassion, she decided she wanted to do more than just give him a little cash.
She thanked Vince and asked if anybody knew him or his family in a Facebook message. Michelle’s social media connections were able to link the two families, and she was taken aback when she learned of their predicament.
Vince’s father, Lorenzo, had caught COVID-19 and was unable to work owing to his inability to wear a protective mask due to respiratory issues.

Michelle decided to start a GoFundMe campaign to help Lorenzo and his family gather much-needed finances. Local citizens flooded in with donations, raising more than $9,000 thus far.
People have been asking Michelle “how they can assist, how they can support this family that has nurtured this child so nicely,” she added.
Vince, on the other hand, has a simple motivation: “Doing the right thing is good,” he stated.
A simple act of compassion and honesty was repaid in ways the Hietpas family could never have imagined. Honesty is always the best policy.
