More "Good News" Stories from the Coronavirus Outbreak

Coronavirus Good News

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

1.  A nine-year-old kid in Massachusetts wrote to the governor and said people should be required to give out FULL-SIZED candy bars this year.  He thinks it would help slow the virus down, because they'd only need to touch one piece of candy instead of three or four smaller pieces.

2.  A food critic in Georgia hasn't had much to write about with restaurants closed down.  So she opened a fine-dining restaurant for chipmunks on her porch.  She says doing something goofy helped her deal with the extra anxiety she's had this year.

3.  How's this for dedication?  Two cops in Michigan recently got married, but couldn't travel or do a real honeymoon.  So they went right back to work the next day.  It happened during the riots in May, but the Grand Rapids Police Department just gave them a shout-out on Facebook.

4.  A fifth-grader in Texas named Orion Jean has been working hard to help people out this year.  He won $500 in a contest run by, and used it to buy toys for kids in the hospital.  Now he's doing a food drive, and wants to give 100,000 free lunches away by Thanksgiving.

Today was one for the record books! People came from near and far to drop off their bags for my “Race to 100,000 Meals”. Their selfless acts of kindness are going to ensure that more people have a meal this week. Thank you all for helping us get even closer to our goal of 100,000 people fed. Most of our donations came from people that I met for the first time today who were compelled to do something and join me in this race. I am extremely grateful for their kindness and I hope that many more will be inspired to help us feed even more people. Thank you to all who sent in monetary donations in lieu of being here physically. This will help us purchase more food/supplies for our upcoming events. Thank you very much!!! We are still tabulating the final counts from today but will post soon... count from past two weekends was 19,667 meals!!!!!
