1. Heart-Touching Story: Good Deeds Could Change The World
Every Sunday morning I take a light jog around a park near my home. There’s a lake located in one corner of the park. Each time I jog by this lake, I see the same elderly woman sitting at the water’s edge with a small metal cage sitting beside her. This past Sunday my curiosity got the best of me, so I stopped jogging and walked over to her.
As I got closer, I realized that the metal cage was in fact a small trap. There were three turtles, unharmed, slowly walking around the base of the trap. She had a fourth turtle in her lap that she was carefully scrubbing with a spongy brush.
‘Hello,’ I said. ‘I see you here every Sunday morning. If you don’t mind my nosiness, I’d love to know what you’re doing with these turtles.’
She smiled. ‘I’m cleaning off their shells,” she replied. “Anything on a turtle’s shell, like algae or scum, reduces the turtle’s ability to absorb heat and impedes its ability to swim. It can also corrode and weaken the shell over time.’
‘Wow! That’s really nice of you!’ I exclaimed.
She went on: ‘I spend a couple of hours each Sunday morning, relaxing by this lake and helping these little guys out. It’s my own strange way of making a difference.’
‘But don’t most freshwater turtles live their whole lives with algae and scum hanging from their shells?’ I asked.
‘Yep, sadly, they do,’ she replied.
I scratched my head. ‘Well then, don’t you think your time could be better spent? I mean, I think your efforts are kind and all, but there are freshwater turtles living in lakes all around the world. And 99% of these turtles don’t have kind people like you to help them clean off their shells. So, no offense… but how exactly are your localized efforts here truly making a difference?’
The woman giggled aloud. She then looked down at the turtle in her lap, scrubbed off the last piece of algae from its shell, and said, ‘Sweetie, if this little guy could talk, he’d tell you I just made all the difference in the world.’”
Moral of The Story: No act of kindness is small.

2. Heart-Touching Story About Giving: A Kind Man & A Beggar
One evening I was going back from a supermarket to my apartment. As I approached my car, I noticed that a person who was in his mid-thirties came and stood beside me. He was the one that could be considered as a bum. It seemed that he had no car, no home, and no job. I expected that he will ask me for money but he did not do that and only said, “Your car is very nice.”
After several moments of silence, I thanked him for the compliment, and then an inner voice told me, “Ask him if he needs help.” After a short hesitation, I asked him if he needs any help. His response was astonishing, I will never forget those simple three words that he said to me, “Don’t we all?” I needed help – this statement shocked me.
It revealed a hidden truth that I was completely unaware of earlier. Although I had money and a place to sleep I recognized that I needed help too. Then I opened my wallet and gave him enough money to get a meal and some shelter for a day. Suddenly I understood that no matter how much money, achievements, or luxury things do we have, we all need help.
And on the other hand, no matter how poor you are, or how many material problems you have, you still might offer your help to others, you still might be giving. Even if it’s just a nice word, you can give that and it can be priceless to another person. Maybe that man was just a homeless stranger, but to me, he was more than that.
Maybe he was sent by the Highest Loving Power personally to me, to open my eyes, to show me that there is one thing, among all other values and achievements, which is very important and irreplaceable for each and every person. Actually, it is a true gift and it is called Giving.
Moral of The Story: Kindness and a generous spirit go a long way.
