  1. Very good news, and if women (I know men are doing the same!) can live without make-up, this would be a great progress in society. But what should the industries do with all these colorful products? 😉 Best wishes, Michael

    • Good question, Michael. If we do make that kind of progress, I think it would take time. Maybe the makeup industries will shift to other areas like health products. I’m very glad you see this as progress. Thanks for supporting the good news!

  2. Thanks for keeping the good work up and such good news. I especially like the no make-up Miss England. That is so cool! After a very long time I did one again too and promised to keep doing it but if I can manage is another question. Well, I try 🙂

  3. So many good new stories JoAnna… Love the Make-up-Free Miss England contestant… But would love better still no Miss England contest at all… As I still think these beauty pageants are exploitation

    Love the Baby Bison.. 🙂 and Elephant… NEW LIFE…. 🙂 Hopeful for a NEW Earth.. ❤
    Lots of great innovative ideas come from our African Brothers and sisters.. Love the one with the batteries

    Some great shares JoAnna… thank you… Have a great November.. ❤

  4. JoAnna, love all the good news! Healing the ozone layer can potentially lead to better health for everyone. But we all should do what we can wherever we are to make a healthier world. The animal stories are heartwarming! ❤

    • I’m so glad you love the good news, Cheryl! We do still have a lot of work to do when it comes to the health of the planet and her residents. We will persevere! ❤

  5. Melissa Raouf makes her point with non-verbal eloquence. A shrinking hole in the ozone layer is most encouraging
