September 9, 2019

Every Monday morning 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.

Today Kevin told us about a young student in Florida who is obsessed with the University of Tennessee Volunteers, but he didn’t have a shirt to wear for his elementary school’s college colors day. So his teacher encouraged him to wear an orange shirt. He was excited to show off his shirt and he even took it one step further by making his own design on a piece of paper and pinning it to his shirt. During lunch, a group of girls at a different table started making fun of his shirt and that devastated him. His teacher told him she would get him his own shirt, but posted the story to Facebook hoping to get in touch with someone at the University. Her expectations were greatly surpassed when the University of Tennessee reached out to tell her they were sending a box full of swag for the young student. They also informed them that the school would be making official shirts with the student’s design and a portion of the proceeds will go to an anti-bullying foundation. The shirts are now sold out. This was Kevin’s GREAT NEWS!!!

Allie told us about a block party that was being thrown to get kids excited about going back to school. For parents, it was made extra special because the kids got free school supplies and haircuts from barber Milan Dennie. He owns King Milan’s Barbershop in St. Paul Minnesota and he knows the cost of going back to school can take a toll on parents. In his childhood, he can remember the pressures of having new clothes, shoes and school supplies, let alone a fresh haircut.  So, he started giving away free haircuts and school supplies. On Labor Day Milan and the other barbers started giving haircuts at 9:00 am and worked for 12 hours cutting over 200 heads of kid’s hair. In addition to the free haircuts, there were tons of free Barbecue. School supplies were also collected from local businesses and put into 200 backpacks to give to the students. These students got a new haircut, a new backpack full of school supplies, a belly full of barbecue to get ready for the school year, and most importantly Love. Love from a community that is willing to provide school supplies, haircuts, and food for students to help them do well in school. This was Allie’s GREAT NEWS!!!

Bean told us that the information coming out of the Bahamas is that 90% of the island has been destroyed. One man in Jacksonville Florida walked into a Costco and walked out with 100 generators, all of which will all be heading to the Bahamas. He spent $49,285.70 most of that cost was from the generators, but he also bought boxes of peas, beans, coffee, salt, pepper, and other essentials. He’s figured out a way to get it all on boats and planes and all of it is now on its way to the Bahamas. A farmer from Jacksonville was there to see this as it was going down. He is not the man that made the purchase, because that man has decided to remain anonymous. He said, "It's important that we help each other out. It's better than just sitting there," he said. "You see a need and you fill it." This guy wanted to stay anonymous and if this guy wasn’t there at the Costco to report it, we would have never known it happened. This was Bean’s GREAT NEWS!!!
