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. (Here’s video.)
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 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.
4. 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.
