People share their colleagues' acts of incredible kindness

A real dream team! Workers share colleagues’ incredible acts of kindness – from finding a kidney donor for fellow teacher to throwing a baby shower for a pregnant pet snail

  • People in North America have shared stories of acts of kindness at work
  • Snaps collated in a gallery by Bored Panda include a baby shower for a snail
  • Among the stories are police throwing a party for their canine colleague 
  • Most people spend hours of their life at work, so it’s not surprising that they often become good friends with their colleagues. 

    But these co-workers from the US and Canada  took friendly relationships to the next level, lavishing thoughtful acts of kindness on each other, collated by Bored Panda. 

    The unexpected gestures include one thoughtful colleague getting his fellow worker’s  poetry published while another threw a baby shower for their workmate’s pregnant snail.

    Others include a thoughtful bunch organising a ball pool for their boss’ birthday, and one workplace creating a log book to make sure an employee’s fish were fed during lockdown.

    Here FEMAIL reveals the incredible acts of kindness people have done for their colleagues…
