We all know that the world is a big ol’ dumpster fire right now, so we need to remember that there is still a lot of good in the world and that most people who inhabit this place called Earth are good and decent.

And, in case you needed that reminder today, we’re here to provide you with a big dose of wholesomeness.

Enjoy these photos and stories of kindness and goodness and remember that when things look bleak, you have to focus on the best stuff! Let’s take a look.

These folks are keeping this country going right now.

A UPS driver went above-and-beyond this year, delivering nearly 200 packages a day through lockdowns and the flurry of the Holiday season. This week, hundreds of neighbors came out to give him a hero’s salute
