Sometimes, people just really, really suck – especially on the internet.

We can be pretty selfish, inconsiderate, and flat out mean when we’re hard-pressed for patience.

Other times, the kindness of strangers is the only thing holding the fabric of society together.

Luckily, we have the internet to share more good than bad.

Here are 11 random acts of kindness that’ll help restore your faith in humanity.
