Hell's Angels is also known for regularly participating in toy runs.
In Australia, a bingo hall filled primarily with elderly individuals was targeted by armed robbers. One of the employees rushed to the bar next door to call for help—and ran right into the Hell's Angels. The Angels then bolted to the bingo hall and proceeded to beat the shit out of the armed robbers. The elderly players even pointed out to the bikers where they were hiding!
The Patriot Guard Riders, a biker organization that shields military funerals from the Westboro Baptist "church".
Bikers Against Child Abuse, an international organization made up of volunteers that help abused children. They visit victims, providing emotional support and protection against their abusers via neighborhood patrols, guarding the victim's home, escorting them to school, and accompanying them to court.
Richard Nixon's famous "Checkers Speech" in 1952: Accused of accepting illegal gifts, Nixon went on TV and talked about giving his daughter a little dog named Checkers. It was a classically-executed Pet the Dog moment that made a hard-to-like politician seem human in the eyes of the American public.
Like others on this list, Nixon was a devoted husband and doting father, as captured on many of the White House tapes. His courtship with Pat, proposing on their first date and even chaperoning her as she went out with other boys, is definitely heartwarming.
He also condemned the segregation in the South to the point he helped with laws to make the practice illegal. He also passed laws to improve the lives of Native Americans, reformed Social Security to include disabled adults and children, and ordered the withdrawal of US troops from the Vietnam War.
In 2006, an assassin nicknamed "The Flash" in Britain took a client's request to kill a police officer who was closing in on a crime that said client was undertaking in. However, when "The Flash" found out that the crime his client was guilty of was child rape and child pornography, he was shocked and instead left a note for the target detailing who his client was to help the officer arrest the criminal. The assassin signed off the note with "The Flash".
The Yakuza actually rushed to Kobe and distributed food, water, diapers, and emergency supplies after the earthquake hit in the 90s. Yes, thatYakuza.
More recently, they did the same thing after the Tidal Wave/Fukishima disaster in 2011.
Johnny Torrio, another famous gangster, was likewise pretty generous too.
Not to invoke Godwin's Law, but Adolf Hitler loved animals and was beloved by the children of the country, who called him "Uncle Adolf" (the ones he didn't send to camps, that is).
Hitler might well have had the best PR of any ruler in history. He was elected after gaining a relative majority and worked hard to win support from all the social classes (except left politicians, modern artists, and Jews of course). Reviving Germany's near-dead economy and restoring national pride after its defeat in World War One made him very popular. Too bad he did the latter two by starting wars and promoting genocide.
Because his mother was successfully recovered from cancer, Hitler also had the doctor who treated her to be protected and escape... to top it off the doctor was Jewish. That's Right... it happened.
Hitler also gave Honorary Aryan status to Jewish soldiers who fought in WWI, exempting them and their families from the horrors of the holocaust.
Hitler actually demonstrated through several Pet the Dog moments that evil isn't simply one dimensional. He prohibited the use of battlefield chemical weapons, even when Germany was going down to defeat, because of the loathing he had for them having suffered under gas attacks during the First World War (not so much when it came to death camps, of course). And when he visited the Canadian war memorial at Vimy Ridge in France in 1940, he was so impressed by the fact that the monument didn't symbolize victory, but loss and the hope for peace, that he ordered the monument to be protected by Waffen-SS units to prevent its desecration. Given the later Arch-Enemy status between the Canadian Army and Waffen-SS due to the latter's murder of Canadian prisoners in 1944, this was rather ironic.
Although recriminalized by Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin protected gay rights and allowed many of the LGBT community to be out in the open without fear.
The Mad Bomber of New York, George Metesky, stopped his sprees of terror during World War Two, out of, in his own words, "Patriotic Feelings".
Prior to becoming a serial killer, Ted Bundy volunteered at a suicide hotline, trying to save lives. He also, on one occasion, saved a toddler from drowning.
WWE has an annual show for US Troops... yes, those who are normally heels also pay their respects. They also donate to charities.
Drug Dealers in Northern Ireland are among the targets of the Real Irish Republican Army, a known terrorist organization.
The Korean Buddhist temple, "Pohyonsa", is deemed a Natural Treasure... and it just so happened to be in Hyangsan county, which it's in North Pyongan Province. Guess who granted this honor... you got it... Kim Il-sung! That's right, although North Korea discourages the practice of religion except Juche philosophy, Buddhists are often left alone mostly due to the history the religion had on Korean culture.
Under this policy, theft and adultery were forbidden, both punishable by death.
He was religiously tolerant, included to Muslims and Christians.
Permission must be granted before pillaging enemy regions under the threat of the death sentence.
He also made sure that messengers were well treated even if they were from a country the Mongols were in the process of sacking, making sure they were fed and rested and sent home safely.
Genghis would let those who surrendered a losing war join his empire with no catch, but he absolutely despised active treason. When his rival Jamuhka was handed to him by two treacherous generals, Khan granted Jamukha a quick death when he refused to join and then promptly had the generals torturously executed by being boiled alive.
Jim Jones routinely rescued stray pets as a child and preached racial integration.
