May 22, 2020

We want to help you start your long, Memorial Day weekend with a series of good news articles from the past week highlighting positive news globally, around the United States, and in the Georgia area. We hope these articles help brighten your day!

At AFA:

  • AFA has recently made a significant donation of Girl Scout cookies to first responders on the health care front lines – bringing some treats our health care workers and helping Girl Scouts who had unsold cookies when their cookie sale was cut short due to the coronavirus.

Around the Globe:

In the US and Georgia:

  • The CDC said that catching the coronavirus from boxes delivered by Amazon or on your takeout food bag is highly unlikely “because of poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces.”
  • All 50 U.S. states have taken steps toward reopening in time for Memorial Day weekend.
  • John Krasinski has been highlighting positive news during the pandemic on his web show “Some Good News.” Sunday night marked the final episode, at least for now, and Krasinski got a little emotional as he signed off.
  • A military nurse returns home and surprises son after deployed to COVID-19 front lines. You can watch the short, heartwarming video of them being reunited here.
  • Feed the Frontlines Georgia, a non-profit launched just last month, provided delicious meals for the health care workers at Memorial Health on Tuesday. Right now, Feed the Frontlines Georgia is providing meals to 37 different hospitals and clinics throughout the state.

We are always happy to hear from you so please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Baron Rothschild, an 18th-century British nobleman and member of the renowned Rothschild banking family, is famously credited with saying that “the time to buy is when there’s blood in the streets.” He took his own advice and made a fortune in the panic that followed the Battle of Waterloo against Napoleon.
