This video just made my day. There is still so much compassion in the world!
Created to test the Norwegian people’s compassion, the video, dubbed SOS MAYDAY, features Johannes, an 11-year-old actor, who sits alone at a cold, wintry bus stop in Oslo without a coat.

SOS set up hidden cameras to answer the question, “What would you do if you saw a freezing child?”
The video’s beauty comes in when the strangers — men and women, young and old — start giving up their gloves, scarves and coats to a freezing child they don’t know. One man asked, "Are you okay?
