A heart-warming video produced by a trio of Vancouver fraternity brothers reminds us that there is hope in this "no fun city" after all.

UBC student Ben Parker, 20, and two of his friends decided to spend their birthdays by performing as many random acts of kindness as they could in a single day.

They came up with the idea while watching YouTube "as a procrastination from studying," Parker told The Huffington Post B.C.

They saw a video of a Pakistani man who spent his 22nd birthday performing 22 random acts of kindness. Parker and his friends immediately decided to do something similar.

The result was video "Random Acts of Kindness," which Parker uploaded to Vimeo on Wednesday.

The young men brought flowers and "thank you" notes to nurses, gave hot chocolate to cold workers and donated all their birthday party money to the M.S. Society of Canada, just a few examples of what these Vancouver do-gooders crammed into one day.
