Kind Stranger Helps Belfast Woman and Her Cancer-Stricken Mother

Here's a heartwarming story out of Belfast, Northern Ireland, that proves small acts of kindness can make a huge impact:

Cara Grace Duggan tried to buy a used Nutribullet juicer for her mother who has cancer and can't eat solid food, but the only one she could find was far away, in London. She asked the seller to post the juicer to her in Northern Ireland.

Instead, the seller ordered her a brand new one out of the kindness of his heart. 

When Duggan asked the seller for a Paypal address so she could send him the money, the seller told her simply that it was paid for. All she needed to do was go collect the juicer from a local store. Buzzfeed and other publications picked up the story and loads of people donated to the family's fundraiser. Read more
