Meet 'The Good Things Guy'

It all started when Brent Lindeque put a different spin on the drinking game Neknominations.

He used his nomination on social media to instead perform a random act of kindness.

He gave a homeless man a meal.

The act went viral and a global campaign was born.

The real story started because of a drinking game that started in Australia. I felt South Africa had much bigger problems. I felt that the portion of our population that lives in poverty is so vast. Imagine instead of drinking we can help another person.

And then millions of people around the world started doing random acts of kindness instead of the Nek-nomination.
