19 people with a heart of gold

We can all be superheroes in our own way and it doesn't need to involve saving lives or performing a heroic act. Little acts of kindness can change someone's life or help save our planet even if they're done quietly and behind the scenes.

A lot of people are kind souls who don't seek to be under the spotlight when they help others out, although with social networks, we can share snaps of these everyday heroes. Here's an inspiring selection of 19 people with a heart of gold.
