2020 was undoubtedly been a year like no other most of us have ever experienced. It's one we will all remember - and not in a good way.

After all, there is a reason why the entire year has essentially become a meme representing disaster. From the devastating bush fires in Australia to the murder of George Floyd to the Coronavirus pandemic, this year has had more than it's fair share of tragedy.

It's fair to say that, at this point, we are all in need of some positivity. And we have just the right amount of wholesome posts to provide precisely that, right here.

Scroll down to have your faith in humanity restored. And don't forget to pass the positive vibes on!

18. Homeless Man Leaves A Donation For Oregon Historical Society After They Got Vandalized During Riots

"Since last night, we have seen new memberships and donations made online to support our work and the clean-up effort — but none have affected me as much as a gift from our neighbor, Oscar. In a note that accompanied a $1 donation, Oscar wrote: “Hello, I’m homeless so I don’t have much to give you, just some of my bottle collecting money. But I saw your windows got broken and wanted to help. You once gave me a free tour before the pandemic, so this is a thank you.” In my time as Executive Director, I have seen OHS receive truly incredible gifts — but this one has touched my heart tremendously."

22. Be More Like Abdul

Back to work today, forgot my pass so locked bike outside Cannon Street station. Left work at 6 pm to find just the cut lock and no bike, resigned to never seeing my trusty stead again asked the station if they have cameras. A guy appeared waving at me, asked me to put the code into my cut lock. He replied ‘I have your bike’ with a smile I will never forget!! His name is Abdul Muneeb and he works for South Eastern Railways, he was on a break and saw a guy bolt cut the lock and challenged him to give it back, he then took it inside and waited 4 hours after his shift finished to personally make sure I got my bike back. The world needs more Abdul’s, he is a legend of a man and a credit to his employer.

A group of young kids caught me on my way into the store. Asked me if I wanted to make a bet. I replied “I’m a gambling man”. Older kid said he could ride a wheelie on his bike stop sign to stop sign. I said no way... and how much? He said 10 bucks. I said why 10? He said they wanted a large pizza at Dominos... I said deal. He came very close but couldn’t hold it his wheelie that long... While they were figuring out how to come up with 10 bucks, I had already ordered their pizza plus a 2 liter of Sprite. Made my night. Love seeing kids be kids.
