Here are a few more good news stories making the rounds . . .
1. Want a cheap ticket to outer space? A billionaire named Jared Isaacman bought all four seats on the first civilian SpaceX flight that’s set to launch in October. And anyone who donates to St. Jude Children’s hospitals this month will have a chance at one of those seats. He’s hoping to raise $200 million for the hospital.
2. People across the U.K. stopped at 6:00 P.M. yesterday to clap for Captain Tom Moore, who passed away this week. He’s the 100-year-old veteran who raised over $40 million walking back and forth across his patio last year. (Here’s a video.)
3. A firefighter in Phoenix was all alone fighting COVID last month. So his buddies showed up in a fire truck and used the ladder to visit him through his hospital window. Now he’s back home and doing a lot better.
4. An elementary school in Florida encouraged kids to dress up like “everyday heroes.” And a 9-year-old named Harper Mahaney decided to go as a Chick-fil-A worker because they always make her happy. So her local Chick-fil-A made her an honorary employee for a day. She even got to serve her mom at the drive-thru.
