GoodHeart | Never underestimate the power of human contact

One thing we can surely take away from 2021 is never to underestimate the power of human contact and how one kind gesture can change lives. It also reminded us that in the midst of pain and sadness, there is always good in the world. The initiatives highlighted in our GoodHeart section ranged from individuals to foundations giving back to underserved communities, the healthcare system and the nation’s children. Each and every story moved us, but here is a recap of the top-10 stories that not only demonstrated but inspired good in 2021.

1. The Torringtons use their talent to help the less fortunate

With clear familial ties to India through his great grandfather, Chad Torrington, professionally known as dancer ‘Global Bob’, felt a great duty to assist the people of India, where more than 32 million COVID-19 cases have been reported since March 2020. He launched an initiative to help India’s Nayati Healthcare with the help of Indian choreographer Jahnavi. Together they raised US$447, which aided the purchase of 50 ventilators for the facility. Meanwhile, through her fashion brand Deluxe Couture, Chad’s wife Amanda has been feeding Kingston’s homeless by using the proceeds from various collections she has created
