Sometimes, People On The Internet Are Awful. Luckily, This Is Not One Of Those Times.

Maybe it’s that Upworthy just had its second birthday (March 2014, whaddup!) or that at long last it’s finally spring (Hah, who am I kidding? I live in L.A. — I have no idea what season it is!) or maybe I’ve just been watching this GIF of a squirrel burying an acorn in a dog too much... ...but reading through the messages below made me feel pretty mushy gushy. If you’ve ever wondered why Upworthy does what it does or whether sharing a post can actually help someone, or if you just want to feel all warm and fuzzy, well, here you go.
