Farmers in Canada make heartwarming gesture to help neighbour

Neighbours of a Manitoba farmer came to his crop's rescue while his daughter was in the hospital recovering after being hit by a car. 

On Wednesday, Rob Harms shared a sweet story on Twitter in honour of his fellow farmers who harvested a days' worth of his crops in just a few hours while he and his wife were taking care of their daughter.

In the tweet, Harms explained that his daughter was struck by a vehicle while out for a run and that his wife had been spending almost every moment at Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg where their daughter was healing from a head injury.

In true neighbourly fashion, Harms' friends showed up at his farm where they combined an impressive 500 acres of soybeans in a mere four and a half hours. 

Now that's a lot of soybeans in such a short amount of time.

With only a couple days to go until Thanksgiving, Harms added that he is overwhelmed with his neighbours' generosity and the fact that he gets to bring his daughter home just before the holiday. 

Unsurprisingly, many online were touched by the heartwarming story. 

"Rob I thoroughly enjoy seeing such great acts of kindness in our world. Happy to hear your daughter will be coming home!" another person wrote.

"In today's messed up world, it's so heartening to see such acts of kindness. Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. Wishing you and your family well and hoping for a speedy recovery for your daughter," another Twitter user added.

Now that's something to be thankful for!
