Sorry, cross-posted! That's lovely to see. My village is lovely, I would hope that someone would help.

That was heartwarming smile

So typical of what I know of Norway. smile
In my small town I imagine that very many people would react in the same way.

I think that in our small town the reaction would be similar. I couldn't vouch for the city centre though.

Yes, in Manchester City centre there would be a similar response. I worked with homeless people there and know of many examples of food, clothes, even shoes being taken off and given to needy people in the street. A child would be noticed quickly.

I saw this earlier... would like to think someone would be kind enough but I can imagine all manner of people scuttling by, afraid of contact because of potential accusations of child abuse. Or maybe I'm showing my cynical side...

Nonnie cried for ages, I am not sure why, I think it was just so kind of those people to offer their coats and it is what God teaches us to do and the world would be a better place if we were all so generous.

Given the opportunity most human beings would have done that I think, given their coats.

That's lovely and heartwarming and brings home the plight of Syrian refugee children..

If you want to help Syrian refugees but wonder how the money will be spent then here is an alternative:-

Even if you don't knit or crochet then I am sure that other donations will be gratefully received, or money for transportation costs.

I have witnessed acts of kindness where I live so I would expect to see this happen here.

Exactly same thing would happen here- but also in the town I used to live in UK. Many would ignore, but someone would help ...
