Good News Tuesday: Free Meals, Pet Friendly Shelter, Solar Progress, and Help for Chimp Haven


Syrian Refugee’s “Nicest Place in America” Gives Free Meals to Government Workers

Yassin’s Falafel House in Knoxville, Tennessee was voted the “Nicest Place in America” by Reader’s Digest. Now they’re  giving away free meals to government workers and their family members affected by the shutdown. If ever I go to Knoxville, I hope to stop in.  (The commercial is short.)



Pet Friendly Shelter at Old Montreal Hospital

Patient rooms at the Royal Victoria Hospital have been converted to provide  80 Beds for homeless people and their animal friends.






Solar Progress Around the World

A Navajo Nations Solar Project is producing electricity for 13,000 homes. “The contractor hired and trained about 200 Navajos to build the plant,…” Here’s the story:

While in India new solar installations planned for 2019 will reach nearly 14 gigawatts (GW), which is about 50% more than the capacity added last year.

Egypt is making significant progress in solar energy.  This hopeful 2018 video reports that Egypt owns the largest solar power plant in the world.









Anonymous Donation for Chimps

This article from The Good News Network reports that an anonymous $2 million donation made at the end of 2018  will provide sanctuary for chimpanzees who have been living in research facilities.  In the following video,  Jane Goodall shares her observations of Chimp Haven and the importance of choice for these intelligent beings. Fewer Chimps are being used in research today. Maybe some day they will all have a choice.





12 Year Old Gives Out Free Lunches with Love

  1. It’s great to see that there are countries moving forward with solar energy.

    Kudos to Syrian refugee Yassin and family for giving away free meals to government workers and their family members affected by the shutdown! This is what we’ve come to in America. Shame on our leadership who play with the lives of people in their power games.
