Acts of Kindness That Made Us Melt in 2017
In many ways, 2017 was a difficult year. We often came across headlines that made us cry, worry from the bottom of our heart, and even question the very existence of humanity. While both nature and humans wreaked havoc in our neighborhoods, we stood still, confused, and found refuge in prayer and in the hands of loved ones. But as with the silver lining in every cloud, it also showed us some of the better moments of life – small yet significant acts of kindness which made the world look like a less hateful place. People, both old and young, doing good inspired by the love that fills us from Heaven. Take a look at some of these inspiring moments from 2017, and keep it in mind when we come across people who need our help – no matter how small the need.
As the following acts show us, every little bit of kindness can cause a great change in someone’s life. Today you can be that change which makes the life of a homeless expectant mother and her baby brighter. Learn more about how you can help us by being a part of our #Be1of5000 program.

The 14 Most Heartwarming Acts of Kindness of 2017
By Corey Whelan
2017 was a challenging year, filled with headlines we’d rather forget. It was also a time when people rose to the occasion, doing whatever was needed to help others, as these stories of kindness and compassion illustrate.
From living in a car to living within a community’s embrace
Imagine living with your four-month-old baby and two-year-old toddler in a beat-up old car because you’ve lost your home – and every other option. That’s what happened to Raijene Mallory, a young, single mom, from Richmond, Virginia. The 22-year-old was put out of her home, along with her two children, and needed a place to live while she got on her feet. With every shelter in the area full, Mallory and her children were spending their nights parked in hospital parking lots, where police were nearby and she felt moderately safe. The young family’s story was reported on a local news station, and within two days, the community pitched in to help.
