A tough grandma, an amusing baby boom and a teacher's brilliant idea

(CNN)

Social media gets a bad rap sometimes. Sure, it's full of people spewing weird insults and half-baked conspiracy theories, but it's also one of the best places to witness under-the-radar moments of beauty and kindness. No, we're not talking about the 5,674th picture your sister-in-law posted of her toddler smashing food on his face (though that's also sweet). We mean those everyday good vibes that deserve to be amplified into the universe. Without social media, would we know about the police officers who banded together this week to help a hardworking guy in a tough spot? Or the grandmother whose selfless act caught the attention of the richest man in her country? Probably not. But luckily, we did, and they're some of the stars of this week's Good Stuff.
