It's no question that Hurricane Sandy devastated New York City, New Jersey and the Northeast this past week. We're still feeling the effects and, unfortunately, I think it's going to take a while for everyone to recover and for things to get back to normal.

One thing that's kept my spirits high in these trying times, though, is the amazing effort that we have seen from so many people, from President Barack Obama to celebrities like Christina Aguilera, to the neighbors down the street. In fact, I loved Xtina rocking her ballad "Beautiful" at the opening of NBC's benefit concert Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together this past Friday. She's not the only one, though, and there have been so many post-Hurricane Sandy acts of kindness that it seriously restores my faith in humanity and warms my heart. Take a look at these photos and, despite the chaos, I guarantee they'll put a smile on your face.
