The photo below is making its rounds on the internet, bolstering people’s faith in humanity. Just a small thing, but a wonderful gesture for people in a Hoboken, New Jersey neighborhood who need to stay in contact with friends and family.

According to one Hoboken resident on, there are a few blocks with power and other residents are offering power cord extensions as cell phone charge stations.

In another gesture of human kindness, restaurants there were also giving out free food.
