In a world where negativity can be overwhelming, good news is like a breath of fresh air. Recently, a TikTok video went viral, showcasing an act of kindness by a truck driver named Kevin.
A family had run out of gas on their way home, but they were fortunate enough to receive help from Kevin, who pulled up in front of them and hooked their vehicle to his truck filled with cheese. He then towed their car to a nearby gas station, filled up their tank, and covered the costs, all for the sake of paying it forward.
The family shared their appreciation for Kevin’s kindness, stating that “genuine kindness is actually the hardest thing to find, so thank you, Kevin.” The video has inspired TikTok users worldwide to appreciate the inherent goodness in people, with one user stating that “we still have great people in this world. A lot of them. That’s what we need, more love instead of all the hate.”
Another act of kindness documented on TikTok involved a couple who gave an 89-year-old pizza delivery driver, Derlin Newey, a tip of a lifetime. Carlos Valdez shared videos of Derlin’s cheerful pizza deliveries, and because of his kindness, Derlin had become the family’s favorite pizza delivery man.
Carlos asked his followers to make donations to Derlin through his Venmo account, and soon enough, $12,000 had been raised. Carlos and his wife delivered the surprise gift to Derlin’s home in Roy, Utah, and he was left speechless.
These stories of kindness remind us that good still exists in the world. As one user commented, “As long as you do kindness towards others, kindness will find its way to you.”
