^ Awh thanks HS9! It's so great to see you <3 ^_^

Today's positive news is some that really made me smile.
A very generous anonymous donor delivered a letter to every single household in a town in Iowa. In every letter was $150 worth of gift cards for food. This anonymous person spent over $80,0000 to make sure that no one in their town was going to go hungry. What a kind gesture that I am sure is appreciated by many. As someone who has gone hungry before, I can understand how much of a massive impact this can have.

Time for today's positive news! :D

To show solidarity with those who have started struggling financially, Jacinda Ardern (prime minister of New Zealand) and ministers took a 20% pay cut, lasting 6 months. There are also reports, on social media, of people in New Zealand getting their self-employed monetary grant within hours of applying! It is great to see a country supporting its residents like this. You can read more about her pay cut here! :D

^Ages ago, I was at the beach and had the chance to watch the turtles hatch and crawl to the ocean. Easily the most amazing and magical thing I've seen. Walking and all of a sudden the sand has come alive with these hundreds of tiny turtles burrowing out from hidey-holes.

This may be met with some mixed criticism, but...

Phase 1 has been initiated!

(Allow me a titter as this whole "Phase" thing is very reminiscent of the MCU, what, is SHIELD going to descend in a helicarrier to battle Loki?)

This means restaurants in my state will begin to resume seating people inside - at a limited capacity of 25%.
Honestly, I don't care so much for eating in restaurants, but I like the progress it will hopefully bring.

Because.......with Phase 1 opening, that means the parks and beaches have opened as well!!!
Social distancing is still a requirement, to be clear, but it's nice to go out and have a walk, enjoy nature.

(I sense I may end up starting a new thread...)

Today's positive news comes from my old University! :D

Due to the current situation, students have been hit hard, especially international students who cannot return home and have been stuck for longer in a country than they had planned. As a result, my old university has introduced a Covid Hardship Fund, to help aid any applicants with any expenses. They have allocated £100,000 so far.

They put out a call today, to all of their alumni asking if anyone would like to donate to the University to help them further support current students, so I have happily chipped in £20, since I relied on a hardship fund when I was at uni, and I wanted to give back. I know how much £20 for groceries can stretch and how much of a relief it can be to know you're gonna be able to eat for the next 2 weeks. ^_^

Hello Everyone :D

Today's bit of positivity comes from the mayor of flavourtown himself, Guy Fieri. Guy has raised over $20 million, to help pay the salaries of restaurant workers that have been affected by COVID-19. This also follows the recent resurfacing of the news that after Guy's lesbian sister died, he became ordained and married 101 gay couples, to honour her memory. You can read more about the most recent story here :D
