Faith in Humanity Restored

Blog dedicated to the phrase "Faith in Humanity Restored", basically just a reason for me to cheer up your dash!


I'm not reblogging only serious posts, I'm also reblogging less serious 'FIHR' things - posts that make me go "Gosh, I love there are people like that out there!" or posts that just make me feel good!

Man allows 72-year-old who unwittingly bought his stolen car keep it
Mr. West met up with the 72-year-old who had unwittingly bought his stolen Chrysler and determined the senior citizen needed the vehicle more than he did. As Mr. West told WFIE, “…72-years-old and fixed income. Stuff like that. He was out $300, he was out the money and he was just, really upset. He told us, ‘Too good to be true.’ I just drove the car for several years as a work car…By the time it was over, I worked it out, I just wound up giving him the car. He needed it worse than I did.”

—Also, the man who stole the car was found and arrested!

Anonymous asked: i know you've had heaps of people already tell you stuff like this, but i thought i'd add to it haha. i went through every single page of your blog the last few days, and even though it sounds weird, it's really made a difference to how i've been feeling and it's basically just given me hope. i thank you so much for doing this, and please keep going, i think there are countless people who are benefiting from it. all the best from australia! x

Haha - oh that’s super sweet! I have a love and hate relationship with the “heaps of people”, actually.. I’ll explain!

I love all messages I get, people are so sweet and kind and I want to respond to each and every message. But because I’m sometimes in a dip because of my depression, or busy with school, I seriously fall behind with answering. Which gets me to the hate part - because I’m always afraid people will get irritated that I’m so slow answering their messages… But so far I haven’t gotten hate mail, so I guess people understand! :-)

And that doesn’t sound weird at all anon, it has the exact same effect on me - which is exactly why I started this blog! And now all these great messages are having their positive effect on me as well ! ^^ Thank you very much for your kind words and lots of love from the Netherlands! X

Anonymous asked: Nearly 70 pages of uplifting stories and photos, and all I can say is thank you for being the wonderful person who took the initiative to create this site, it's a truly beautiful thing. You are awesome! :)

And so are you for ging through all those pages! :-) Thank you so much, I hope you have a great day and continue to be awesome. ^^

 submitted to I really love this, it makes me laugh, makes me cry and makes me think that there are still kind people out there. It makes me realize that not all of humanity is hopeless so thank you for restoring my faith in humanity. 

On another note I am unsure if you saw this before or someone submitted it to you, but I loved the video and felt like I should share it with you and everyone else. I know it might have been a project and was scripted out but the idea behind it was so beautiful I thought it wouldn’t matter.

Yes, it’s a commercial - but I agree with  that its kind of a super great one. Words are powerful and they showed it in a super caring way. Inspiration to pay forward. ^^

greeknerdfrombrazil asked: Okay, i was going to write something more tear-eyed and nice, but fuck that. Holy shit your blog is awesome. I spent nearly 12 hours going through this tumblr and i cried like (i cannot even say "like a little girl after reading so much win) my team lost in some sport (some people like those) almost all the time. I am a sucker for this type of stories and your blog is the Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters of nice stories.I went after my tumblr account just so i could follow you and write you

Hello there Greek Nerd From Brazil! :-) Wow, this message is full of flattery, thank you so much for your kind words! ;-) Crying is manly as fuck - so I’m glad you’re owning up to it! ^^  

I also saw your other message, you said ; “Finally got to read all your posts! Answer me, it takes too much time to be this awesome?” 

And I can tell you that I just need to look into my inbox and read lovely messages like these, and then I feel super awesome! So it doesn’t take long at all. ^^ But the real awesome people here of course are the people in the stories, they are the ones doing all the great deeds and restore your faith in humanity! :-) And you (all of you) of course, for taking the time to make tumblr accounts, send in messages and personal stories, etc.! You guys are great.

Lots of love to you, greeknerdfrombrazil!

Xx,  Aster

A young man with a severe case of oral-facial-digital (ofd) syndrome runs track with his teammates despite his handicaps.

This is a great inspiring story. I hope life after these three years will become just as wonderful ! 

Thank you for this submission - thank you, thank you! Seriously people - this is really touching. I really want to give both of these guys a huge hug. For real, I’m touched.

ben-needs-to-stop-drowning asked: I kind wanna submit like fifteen different things because the people around my neighbor hood are so accepting and nice. I have seen so many kind acts from where I'm around. From a man running in front of a car to save a injured cat to a girl tackling a man who was abusing his girl friend in public. (Also this blog makes me very happy.)

Submissions are always welcome ben (if your name is ben ;-) ) , trust me! 

Your neighbourhood sounds amazing and this message alone already restores quite some faith in humanity I’d say - cats saved, heroic acts -  definitely an epic neighbourhood! :-)

Lots of love, Xx

INSPIRING: Boy with special needs collects nearly 50,000 bottle caps for charity
Yuteru Domon, a 15-year-old junior high school student in Japan, has collected 49,512 plastic bottle caps for a charity that gives children in developing countries access to polio vaccines.
Some kids are just exceptional. Yuteru Domon, a special needs student at a junior high school in Date City, north of Fukushima, took charity to a whole new level by collecting almost 50,000 bottle caps all by himself to save children from polio. Starting last June, his goal was to get polio vaccines for 50 children in developing countries. With 800 caps equalling one vaccination, his goal was to collect 40,000. By the time winter vacation rolled around, Yuteru achieved that goal, but he kept on going. He asked for help from his schoolmates, and they brought him whatever caps they could find. The 49,512 bottle caps netted him a total of 1623 yen, enough for 61 vaccinations.
"It was hard to wash and count every single bottle cap," he said. "I want to thank everybody who helped me."
While many kids his age just spend their time playing games on their cellphones or watching television, Yuteru decided to save kids across the world that he’s never even met. What a hero.

Thank you markfarroyo for submitting this! :-) What a guy !
