A New Superhero – GiraffeMan

Armstrong Baillie, Kindness Giraffe
A man who dresses up as a giraffe and carries out random acts of kindness towards people across Scotland has said he does it to feel good.
Twice a week Armstrong Baillie, 32, dons a furry suit his mother made him, before travelling to different places to do good deeds.
During the past six months Armstrong has handed out free bananas and water to runners at the Edinburgh Half Marathon, cleaned up litter on Portobello Beach and given away £10 vouchers to mothers in hospitals.
He has also been seen handing out free coffee to cold passers-by and cleaning cages at cat and dog homes.
He said: “It makes me happy when I see the difference in people when they see me in the suit. It makes them happy and it makes me feel cheery.
“The reason I picked a giraffe is that I have always been interested in animals and giraffes are my favourite animal.
“Giraffes are like me, as my head is in the clouds but my heart is in the right place.”



  1. Wow, I would love to go round with him and do all those things…. so true “ head in the clouds- heart’s in the right place.My favourite animal too
