    I stole this thread title from the Bobby Bones Show segment where they share happy stories/good news to brighten everyone's day. Who doesn't love hearing awesome stories that restore our faith in humanity?!

    To begin, I'll post this video which hit me right in the feels:

    Dionysus Ok Cool. Hook ’Em!

    I wish I could Like this a thousand times Walker. There is so much negativity in the world.

    Another animal-related thing. This is what happens when a joey needs a pouch but does not have a mother.

    A man in Oregon organized a home makeover for an elderly neighbor after overhearing teens say the house was so ugly that it should be burned down.

    Bullock, who had some mobility issues, was floored by the offer of help.

    “He was speechless,” Cyganik said.

    He asked a few railroad coworkers to help with the labor, and also asked for volunteers in a post on Facebook. That post was shared more than 6,000 times.

    When painting day came, more than 100 volunteers showed up.

    “There’s nothing stronger than the heart of a volunteer,” Cyganik said.

    The fresh coat of paint now gives Bullock a sense of pride as he sits on the porch. “Every time I see him, I wave to him still,” Cyganik said. “He just smiles from ear to ear.”

    The story of Cyganik’s good deed has since been shared around the world, something that surprised him.

    “For me, it was no big thing,” he said.

    But he said he was happy to have been part of something good at a time when much of the news is filled with negativity. He encouraged others to lend a helping hand where they saw a need.

    It had taken him four years of waving at Bullock before taking that step. Now, he stops to chat regularly with the older man and check on his progress with other home improvement projects.

    “Don’t be afraid to go out there and help them,” Cyganik said. “Don’t be afraid to take the first step.”
