In these troubling times, stories of kind strangers will be what saves us from spiraling into madness over the state of the world. (Well, stories of kind strangers and videos of snoring dogs.) Here's one to get us started.

Twitter user @lifeaslizz_ recently tweeted photos of a note (and $100 in cash!) her mom found in a Redbox DVD case.

The note reads:



My name is Marcos. Every month I take $100.00 that I would normally spend on myself and give it away to a stranger. This month I decided to change it up and put it in a Redbox DVD. You are the first giveaway of 2017! I just ask that you put the money to good use. If you don't need it, give it away. If you need it, keep it.

Have a great day!


"My mom was just hoping to relax & enjoy a movie, but instead God blessed her with more. Marcos whoever you are, God bless you," Liz wrote.

Liz's tweet quickly went viral. It currently has over 30,000 retweets and over 95,000 likes. People love a good Redbox angel.

We need more people like Marcos in the world. Keep being good to each other. (And keep watching puppy videos.)
