Free Gifts for Health Care Workers

Free vacations, crocs, and free rides are some of the gifts companies are donating to health care workers.  For example, JetBlue is giving away 100K pairs of roundtrip airline tickets to healthcare heroes. You can read more about the gifts here. 

Cities Around the World Make More Roads Car-Free

Bogota, Budapest, Paris, Milan and Seattle are among the cities designating more car-free roads and pathways for biking and walking and making many of these initiatives permanent. Read more about these “eco-silver linings” at the Good News Network .

Bella’s Back Home

Australian Shepherd Bella woke her family up the night of the tornado, but they couldn’t get her to come into the bathtub with them for safety. Maybe she was hiding under the bed. After the tornado, Bella was nowhere to be found. After 50 days, a church friend and dog rescuer spotted her in an alley and put out some really good food which led to the family reunion. Watch this video for details about Bella.

You Are My Sunshine

For mother’s day, a family sang “You Are My Sunshine” to their 87-year-old grandmother from outside her assisted living apartment. Other residents came out and joined in from their balconies.

    • Thank you so much for sharing this story, Maggie! I take so much for granted. This is something we all need to think about. But Terence Lester and his team did much more than think about it.

  1. Aww! love that last story.

    • Thanks, Damyanti. “You are my Sunshine” is one of the first songs I sang to my children, so it has sweet roots for me. Glad you enjoyed it!

  2. You are my sunshine was my favourite today

  3. All good stories, but my favourite, predictably, was Bella’s!!! Thanks for the good news, my friend!
