At Gosh! we try to be kind in everything we do, and love seeing good will spread elsewhere too, so we’ve round up the loveliest things we’ve spotted across the globe this week. Get involved and share your acts of kindness on social media with #GoshKindness.
1. Child reunited with loved teddy bear
A man took to Twitter when he found this well loved (if slightly tatty) teddy bear left on a train. Almost 3,000 people shared the picture in the hope of reuniting it with its owner and sure enough, it paid off.
To the lady who got on the 1326 Bury st Edmunds(02/04/19) @greateranglia train and got off at Stowmarket station with your little girl. I found her well loved Teddy. It will be handed with care back at Ipswich train station. Let's get this Teddy home#tedsjourney #homewardbound pic.twitter.com/1LLLoWK4aJ

2. Woman attends strangers graduation
A woman from South Africa attended a strangers graduation after she saw his post online saying how disappointed he was to be going alone, as his parents couldn’t make it. Ntokozo Khanyile messaged Mthobisi Senzo to offer to come along as his cheerleader, and even said she’d buy him a celebratory lunch too! Mthobisi said: “I was very happy – although sometimes I feel I cannot express my happiness enough but I’m really thankful her for even making it and taking me out for some refreshments after the ceremony.’
- Students build wheelchair for disabled child
A family who couldn’t afford the $20,000 wheelchair their two year-old son needed, were helped out by students who heard of their plight. The Farmington Public School ‘Rogue Robotics Team’ took time after classes to work on the project and were delighted to gift the family with the life changing equipment.
This 2-year-old's family couldn't afford his $20,000 electric wheelchair, and their insurance didn't cover it. So, a high school robotics team built him one for free ❤️️ https://t.co/t8nF8XTkxO pic.twitter.com/B1rrLgrBg0
