Kindness is more contagious than a cold (and a lot more fun), so to encourage you all to spread a little love this week, we’ve found some wonderful acts of kindness that have taken place everywhere from The Midlands to the Midwest. Get involved and share your acts of kindness on social media with #GoshKindness.
1. Policeman care for children
Policeman in the Netherlands cooked dinner (and even did the washing up) for five siblings when their mother was taken into hospital.
2. Postman’s kindness to dogs is rewarded
A postman in the US who was in the habit of giving treats to dogs he saw on his round, was surprised to be given a note from one of the owners after their pup passed away last week.
My dad is a mailman and he likes to give dogs on his route treats. Today he told us one of the dogs on his route passed away and his owners gave him this bag of treats with this note ? pic.twitter.com/JA46PU60a4

3. Strangers crowdfunding campaign secures a job and a place to live for homeless man
A homeless man from Halesowen was able to find somewhere to live, and start work again thanks to an online fundraiser set up by a stranger. Tony Lavell, 28, was sleeping rough until Sherry Davies launched the appeal. She said: ‘I was watching Tony’s story on Facebook and then heard he had been offered a job but needed a place to live. I just thought it was ridiculous that all he needed was somewhere to live, so I set up the crowd funding page to try to raise money for a deposit etc… to rent privately. There was an amazing response.
