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

1.  A woman in Washington state used her stimulus check to make hundreds of lasagnas for people.  She's made over 1,200 in the last three months using her grandmother's recipe.

2.  After both of his parents got the virus, a 15-year-old in England created a wristband that senses when you're about to touch your face and stops you.  It's called VybPro, and he's raising money for it on Kickstarter.

3.  Duck Brand duct tape has a $10,000 scholarship contest each year that challenges kids to make prom dresses and tuxedos out of duct tape.  Now a girl's amazing coronavirus-themed dress is going viral.  It took 394 hours and 41 rolls of tape to make it.  They haven't announced the winner yet, but she's got a good chance.

Hi everyone! I have not used social media since middle school but I would like to announce that I have entered a duct tape dress into the Stuck at Prom 2020 scholarship contest hosted by @theduckbrand. The finalists for the dress category will be announced on June 19th and community voting will start June 29th (let's hope I make it into the finals!). The artwork I created is based on the coronavirus pandemic. I will be explaining what everything means in detail later on. That being said, I'll be switching this account from my personal account to an account showcasing my dress! (I never used my personal account anyway--) Thank you to those who have already given me tons of support on Facebook! It is much appreciated! ❤ #theduckbrand #stuckatprom #ducttapeart

4.  It's amazing how many older people have figured out the online hangout thing.  A 30-year-old guy in New York became friends with an 82-year-old before the virus hit.  And they haven't let the lockdown stop them.  They've been talking on the phone, and just made the switch to Zoom this month.

5.  A new survey found the crisis has been stressful, but it's also made us more grateful.  75% of us are more grateful for our health, relationships, and life in general.  And 68% have been inspired by all the random acts of kindness they've seen.
