This is a question Random Acts of Kindness

Crackhouseceilidhband asks: Has anyone ever been nice to you, out of the blue, for no reason? Have you ever helped an old lady across the road, even if she didn't want to? Make me believe that the world is a better place than the media and experience suggest

I think this counts
My 8 year old daughter went back to school for year 3 last September, to find there were 2 new kids in the class.

One of them had just moved from Brazil, and spoke almost no English at all.

In a slight stroke of luck, my daughter is bilingual in English and Portuguese. She volunteered, receiving the teachers blessing, to look after this kid and has done so ever since. He's now quite capable of looking after himself, so she doesn't need to do too much. Still, must have made a big difference to him.

Pretty cool, I reckon.

When I was 8 I moved from Norway to the US. They put me in the year below partly to allow some leeway because of the language barrier, and partly because there was already, by a stroke of luck, a Norwegian kid in that class who had been there for 6 months and was now fluent in English. Did he help me? Did he fuck. He spent most of the time making fun of me in English with the others, then when I was a bit more confident in the language he would invite me on playdates only to bully me relentlessly. Cunt.
