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

1.  Captain Tom Moore was knighted by the Queen at Windsor Castle on Friday.  Back in April, he set a goal to walk 100 laps in his backyard before his 100th birthday to raise money for healthcare workers. He ended up raising over $40 million.

2.  There's a fairly well-known artist in L.A. named Michael Gittes.  And he just donated 1,800 paintings to a hospital in Brooklyn . . . one for every employee.  They're all abstract paintings of flowers.  It was funded by anonymous art collectors who bought some of his other work to help pay for it.

3.  A mom in Utah went viral in April when she decided to raise money for charity by making masks with cartoon versions of guys' JUNK on them.  And now there's an update:  She's raised over $100,000 selling them online.

4.  A cosmetics company in London projected a giant smiley face on the side of Parliament late last week.  They specifically chose the spot because it faces a hospital.

5.  A woman in Kansas City won a hundred bucks on a lottery ticket, and gave it to the family of a wounded cop.  It turns out she did it even though she lost her job because of the pandemic.  So someone started a GoFundMe page for her.  And it's already raised thousands of dollars.
