April 22, 2019

Today on Kevin & Bean we have GREAT NEWS stories for you. We find news stories that make you feel good and restore your faith in humanity to balance out all the bad news you hear on the news.

This morning Kevin introduced us to Jay Singh a 7-Eleven store owner in Toledo, Ohio. Singh caught a young man stealing from his store, confronted him and wanted to know why? The young man told Singh that he was stealing food for him and his brother because they were hungry. Singh then filled a bag of food and gave it to the young would-be thief. Singh said that there would be no point in getting him arrested and that it would not solve his hunger problem. When Singh was asked why he did it, he stated, "It's basically our Indian culture that if you give food to a hungry person, that's considered like God will bless you for that".

Bean brought our attention to Chris and Lucy who are inseparable.  Chris is a homeless man in Sydney, Australia whose pet rat Lucy was stolen. Chris left Lucy on a milk crate while he used the restroom, when he returned, Lucy was gone. Social Media users on Facebook and Reddit were quick to re-post the story and share lovely stories about Chris and his pet rat Lucy. Fortunately for both of them, they have been reunited. According to a Facebook post by police, Lucy had been taken by a woman passing by who thought Lucy the rat had been abandoned. When the officers brought Lucy to Chris, he confirmed that it was his beloved pet rat. This was Bean’s Great News!!! Click here to read the whole story.

Today Allie told us about a group called The Missing People Choir. It is comprised of members that have the anguish of a missing loved one. The missing people are mostly children who have been kidnapped or a person with mental health issues that have disappeared and were never found. The group was started by music producer James Hawkins who volunteered to start the choir back in 2014. It is about 30 people from every walk of life most of whom have never sung a day in their lives. Their goal is to raise awareness of the roughly 180,000 people who are reported missing in the U.K. every year. What they have noticed is that life and joy are returning to these people’s lives, because normally they would not have anyone else to talk to about it. Their singing becomes a cathartic, moving and emotional and so they raise their voice in pain and hope. This was Allie’s Great News!!! Click here to read the whole story.
