South Africans on a bus to Bothasig, Cape Town, were moved by a young man’s kindness after watching him give up the seat he was occupying to let an elderly woman sit down.
Seeing that the bus was full and that the gogo had nowhere to sit, the man did not hesitate to give her his seat and happily stood for the rest of the bus ride, Briefly.co.za found.

"I believe in giving credit where credit is due," writes Kim. "This young gentleman was on the Bothasig bus this afternoon - it leaves the parade at 4:10. The bus was full and he gave his seat to a lady on the bus and stood all the way to Bothasig."
Impressed with the gentleman's actions, Kim added:
"You don't see that often anymore. Well done to you, your parents have raised a good young man."
Inspired by the man's deed, a Facebook user, Hester de Bruin, wrote:
"Absolutely yes! If every person living in South Africa start doing one good deed a day for anyone else, no matter what race, age or gender, we could change our country."
