Good Things Guy spent the year doing good things in partnership with First Choice and their #Move4Goodness campaign, from planting trees after the Knysna fires to cleaning beaches and even teaching kids about the environment… so we’ve decided to look back at the year together, and bring you all the Top stories of 2017 (with all the updates of the people who inspired us this year).

This is the 10 days of Goodmass, good news stories to uplift you, just in time for the holiday season!

For the 4th day of Goodmass, we’re sharing the story of a group of 28 builders that went viral for heroically saving a man from being hijacked in his driveway.

Around 28 men working on a, CT Building Contractors, building site took on criminals attempting to hijack Dino Salgado. Dino shared the story of how the men saved him and took action against some bad men.

“There were construction workers building houses next to us at the time and when they saw an armed man getting out the Golf R they proceeded to throw half-bricks and huge rocks at the car, screaming “get out of here Totsi’s!’” – Dino Salgado

The gunman started opening fire on the builders who refused to run and heroically continued to throw rocks until the criminals fled. The criminals left with a broken windscreen and side mirrors.

“I would just like to thank the 28 workers who launched that endless volley of debris at the hikackers so that I had enough time to speed into my garage and close it.🙂 Nice to see South Africans united against crime, you guys are champions!” – Dino Salgado

The builders can be proud of their actions! Readers had been sure to comment on just how heroic they thought the guys were! The owner of the construction company also commented and said he would be showing the guys all the amazing comments.

In partnership with First Choice and their #Move4Goodness campaign, Good Things Guy is sharing the Top stories of 2017 and spreading the Goodness around just in time for the holiday season.

Stay tuned as we share the most feel-good stories of 2017!
