Is any act of kindness too small to matter?

The man in the picture below is James Varnado, a recent shopper at the Target store in Kenner, Louisiana. The parking lot was drenched by a torrential downpour so, instead of rushing to their cars, customers were waiting out the storm inside the store.  But Varnado had something nobody else had -- a huge umbrella and an even bigger heart.

He was drenched from head to toe but had a smile on his face as he escorted mothers and kids to their cars and helped them unload their purchases. According to photographer Deepak Saini, "Every time he returned he said, 'Who's next?' with a big grin." Why did Varnado do this? "People are people," he explained. "It doesn't matter if you're the richest person in the world or the poorest. Somebody needs help? Help 'em."
