'The Office' actor put out a call on Twitter for people to spread some cheer during what has been a gloomy time for the world using the hashtag #SomeGoodNews.

"Alright everybody, how about #SomeGoodNews!" he said on Wednesday.

"Send me the stories that have made you feel good this week or the things that just made you smile!"

More than 2,000 people have replied, with stories ranging from people getting engaged, many buying their first home or adorable pets finding their forever home.

Some stories have been more tear-jerking than others.
