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.Brent Lindeque - 'Good things Guy'
And then millions of people around the world started doing random acts of kindness instead of the Nek-nomination.Brent Lindeque - 'Good things Guy'
