Roxanne Carter shared a touching story of a Grade 12 class who surprised a classmate, Tasreeq Doovey, whose cell phone was stolen.

The post was flooded with reactions and comments praising the young adults:
"Beautiful ❤️❤️❤️❤️ wow Tears in my eyes. Thank you to each family represented in that class. May God bless every one of you, your households and everything you possess. ❤❤❤❤."
Zam Mtezman Somchiza:
"Ctrl+Alt+Del all adults and this generation could take it from here...
If only it was that easy...
"This is so beautiful! We need more love and compassion in this world. Well done guys! ❤ you didn't do this for recognition, but you sure have set a wonderful example."
"Roxanne Carter you are amazing changing a young man's (boy) life for the better. Thx may you be blessed ❤️❤️❤️."
Roxanne started a backabuddy campaign for Tasreeq who is the sole breadwinner for his mom and three younger siblings, his matric studies are suffering as he has to work.
So far R24 500 has been raised for Tasreeq with a goal of R55 000.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that a good Samaritan has lent a helping hand to a gogo who couldn't find her way back home after collecting her medication from hospital.
Xolie Farida Kuzani posted on the Facebook group #ImStaying that she was on her way to a supermarket when she met the old woman, who couldn't even walk properly.
Xolie said she was moved when she realised that no one was willing to help the gogo. Other people were just looking at her, she said.
"I went to her and asked her where she's going. She said she's looking for the taxis going home from the hospital."
