Woman Caught On Camera Giving CPR To A Pigeon.
A random act of kindness can go a long way in defining your character. Here are 9 acts of kindness that no one was expecting.
1. How far would you go to save an animal’s life?
A woman in Glasgow, Scotland, attempted to save a pigeon’s life by giving it mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
The video of her doing this had more than 10,000 retweets and 14,000 likes. Unfortunately, her efforts were in vain, as the pigeon was not revived.
2. Don had just had one of his legs partially amputated, and he was struggling to make it up his home’s front steps before finally giving up and sitting down.
As his wife, Jennifer, tried to console him, a man passing by stopped and asked if he could help with anything, because the couple looked so down. When they explained their situation, the man, named Steve, picked Don up and carried him in the house.
Now that was awful nice of him. But he wasn’t done. Steve returned to Don and Jennifer’s house the next day with some buddies to build a wheelchair ramp up to their front door.
Says Jennifer: “We just couldn’t believe it. Wow. To be on the receiving end of such kindness is so humbling.”
3. A young girl was standing outside a Target store in Rowland Heights, California, selling candy for a dollar each. Suddenly, an older woman walks up to her and begins scolding her for selling the candy there without a license. She even threatened to call the police. Well, the young girl broke down and started crying.
Jay Lopez, a passerby hearing all the commotion, walked up to the woman and told her that she should be ashamed of herself, then he gave the little girl $80 for her entire box of candy. He then proceeded to give the candy out to other passersby and shoppers.
Outside of Target, someone was selling candy. As my mom and i were walking away, a lady went up to this person and told them she wanted to see their license to sell. She started harassing him to the point where he started to cry. A group people went up to her and told her to leave him alone. A man came up and started voicing his opinion and bought $80 worth of candy and started giving it away to the group of people. There are good people and bad people in this world and i saw it first hand. Screw all you ignorant people that have to complain about something.

4. Now we all know doctors make a lot of money. But Dr. Sanduk Ruit and Dr. Geoff Tabin have restored the eyesight to more than 150,000 patients in 24 countries, with each procedure being ONLY the cost of that procedure, which is $20.
Together, the doctors formed the Himalayan Cataract Project to help families live full lives. In this case, it’s not about the money at all. It’s all about humanity and having your heart in the right place.
5. Rebecca and Frankie married, then added a pit bull mix puppy to their family, named Apollo. They both loved Apollo dearly, just like their own child.
Unfortunately, Rebecca and Frankie divorced a little more than a year after their marriage, and Rebecca kept Apollo and moved. But every year, Apollo receives a birthday card from his “daddy” Frankie.
In the last card, he ended it with “As always, continue to take care of yourself and your mom. Continue to be there for her like you were for me.”
This brought Rebecca to tears and she posted it.
6. Back in 2013, Dwight, Illinois, high school seniors Ryan Kodat and Luke Arnold came across a homeless man who was freezing in a blizzard. The young men found some warm clothes for him, along with a jacket, then they bought him a train ticket so he could visit his father, which was his one wish.
The homeless man, named Wade Herter, was very grateful to the young men who helped him, and he never forgot it. When Wade’s father died a short time after he reunited with him, he left Wade $1.2 million. Needless to say Wade was shocked. He never knew his father had that kind of money.
A short time later, Wade wrote to Ryan and Luke’s school district, telling of his encounter with them. He also included a $10,000 check. No one at the school had known of Ryan and Luke’s act of kindness. But for this, the district decided to create an annual pay-it-forward award in Wade’s father’s name.
So now, every year for the next decade, students will be given a $500 award for performing a selfless, random act of kindness. And Ryan and Luke will be the judges.
7. Anyone who is aware of the Sikh religion knows it goes completely against strict protocol to remove one’s turban. But when a 6-year-old boy was hit by a car and his head was bleeding, 22-year-old Harman Singh did just that.
He removed his turban without regard to any religious issues and applied it to the boy’s head while awaiting emergency crews. The boy survived and his mother feels that Harman removing his turban to help him saved his life.
Says Harman: “I wasn’t thinking about the turban. I just thought ‘He needs something on his head because he’s bleeding.”
You know when it’s one’s religion, it IS a big deal. Not everyone would have done what Harman did.
8. Dale Hall and his nephews spotted a lifeless blue-tongue lizard at the bottom of their pool and immediately fished it out, giving it CPR and pumping its chest.
But it seemed gone, so they dug a grave for it. As they were putting it in the hole, it winked at them. So they again tried more CPR and rubbing its belly while upside-down.
After 20 minutes, they gave up and prepared to bury him again. But again, the lizard jerked and gave signs of life. A short time later, the lizard, now named Dusty, came around, and they took him to a Wildlife Rescue shelter.
9. Andrew Lumish does something most of us don’t even consider. He cleans tombstones, primarily those of veterans in Tampa, Florida cemeteries.
He can spend more than 10 hours a day sprucing up the grave markers. And you can see by the photos that he does an incredible job. Between cleaning the tombstones, he learns about the people buried beneath them so it becomes more of a personal thing to him.
To date, he has cleaned more than 300 tombstones.
