8 of the soundest people in the world ever

These people are paying it forward.

DO YOU NEED some cheering up?

Here are some amazing heart-warming stories of human kindness to warm your cockles.

1. The very decent Zack Galifianakis

When Zack Galifianakis was a struggling comic in 90s LA, he made friends with an elderly woman who volunteered in his local laundromat. The woman, named Mimi Haist, was dependent on tips from customers.

Haist (who is 87) fell on hard times two years ago. When Galifianakis found out his old friend was homeless, he stepped in to set her up in an apartment and began take her to red carpet premieres.

What a totally stand-up guy. Good on you, Galifianakis.

2. Look out for the little

Look at this little moment of cuteness.

All it takes is a little attention and consideration from one passer-by to save a whole family of ducklings.

Oh us? We’re not crying, there’s just a lot of dust in this room.

3. Save the whales

People who dedicate themselves or risk their safety to help animals are some of the most noble and selfless people around.

We – and the animals – salute you.

4.To love and to guide

What is more adorable than a loyal, diligent seeing-eye dog?

Squee.

5. People who hand in wallets

It sucks to lose your wallet. It’s not even really the cash that’s the worst thing – it’s the lost  cards, memorabilia, IDs, everything.

People who go out of their way to return lost possessions, with no material gain for themselves whatsoever, are some of the coolest people going.

It’s an act of kindness that takes effort, has little kickback – but means a lot to a stranger.

6. The small big things

During times of tragedy and strife, the best comes out in communities.

After the recent Hurricane Sandy, the people of New York reached out and helped each other – even in seemingly small ways.

7 . Unexpectedly sound parents

Ever got onto a plane, sat down and noticed you were beside a crying baby? Well, you’d be cursing your luck probably.

Not if you were beside these two legendary parents though!

8. We’ll get by with a little help from our friends

And of course, the soundest people in the whole world: our friends.

Perhaps your mate introduced you to your spouse?

Or perhaps it’s the small things that your friends do that mean the most…
