Check out all the good that happened during this year in between all the bad. 

Even with just a few weeks left for the year to end, there is only one thing in particular that people would wish for – ‘positive instances and news’. The year 2020 looked like it was on a mission to drop all the negatives. From floods, earthquakes, forest fires to a world-wide pandemic we have seen everything. The only thing that is left to happen this year is an alien invasion, and no one is ready for that… except memers, of course.

Despite all these sad and frustrating things, there have been a number of positive instances and news that happened around the world. It was like, people were trying to balance out all the bad with the good in their hearts. These positive instances gave people hope and brought a smile to everyone’s faces. We tried to make a list of such news to help us say good-bye to this year on a happy note. And as the year ends, we can forget the negatives and try to take these positive instances ahead in 2021.

Check out these positive instances from 2020:
