The Ararat Advertiser and Stawell Times-News are calling out for stories about acts of kindness you have seen in your area.
Here are some stories, already happening across the region that will make you smile while the world deals with the coronavirus pandemic.
A special package delivered
A Stawell grandmother got a pleasant surprise when she went to pick up her newspaper from her front lawn.
She turned around and sitting at her front door was a care package, left by one of her neighbours.
Inside it contained some toilet rolls, and home made jams.
"I just think it was the nicest thing someone could do," the 86-year-old woman said.
"I was so surprised and thank my neighbours very much.
Handing over a hot ticket item
13-year-old Maiya Salmi went looking in Stawell IGA during the week to see if there was any toilet paper left.
She thought she hit the jackpot as there was one packet left.
She picked it up only to hear a large family behind her say "oh no mummy, we have none left".
Without hesitating Maiya turned around and handed over the packet and walked out empty handed, accepting running low, wasn't as bad as having none left.
Sharing recipes and shopping tips
A 25-year-old man, who hails from Stawell, was grocery shopping in Geelong when he came across a lady in her 70s who was overwhelmed with not being able to buy what she needed.
He asked her if she was ok and she said she can't get to the supermarket at 7am but by time she got there everything she needed was gone.
He walked around the supermarket with her and she told him about her husband who has trouble getting around.
He told her that the microwave rice is actually pretty good, shared a recipe with her and they got the ingredients together (or as many as they could).
They went to the checkout where he paid for her groceries and helped her take them to her car. She was so grateful.
Community chest to help out
Lauren, of Stawell, has set up a community chest outside her home, with food items, toilet paper etc. She received a lovely letter of thanks from someone who took one of the toilet rolls. The next day the person returned with the note of thanks, and $5.
Friends lend a helping hand
Nothing worse than coming home after a long day at work and starting the dinner routine, sometimes it's the last thing you want to do. I've had some wonderful friends make my family a meal as they know how busy I am at the moment at work, providing an essential service to the community. So very thoughtful and generous of them.
