Here are a few more good news stories from the outbreak...

1.  A guy from Michigan took part in something called the "Great Grass Race" this summer, where people race across the country on riding mowers.  But they don't bring money or food, so they rely on random people to help them out along the way. He made it all the way from L.A. to Tampa.  And even with the pandemic, he says he was, quote, "brought to tears a bunch of times, because of the good nature of people."

2.  Thousands of Disney park employees got laid off last week because of the pandemic.  So two fans who run a site called the Disney Tourist Blog started a food bank fundraiser that pulled in over $50,000 to help them out.  They say it should pay for around 200,000 meals.

3.  A 102-year-old woman in Chicago named Bea Lumpkin wore a hazmat helmet to go drop off her vote-by-mail ballot the other day.  She made her grandson post a photo on Instagram to encourage people to vote.  She says if she's willing to, quote, "face a pandemic [to vote>, nobody should have an excuse."
