Good News: WallStreetBets Loves Gorillas, and a Guy Gives Back by Donating Blood 962 Times

Here are a few more good news stories making the rounds . . .

1.  A TSA agent in Pennsylvania has been helping people get vaccinated.  Her name is Donna LaMonaca, and she wakes up three times a night to book appointments for people . . . at 12:30, 2:30, and 4:30 A.M., because she realized it’s when new slots in her area tend to open up.  Her 13-year-old son also helps by escorting seniors to their appointments and making sure they have everything they need.

2.  Remember Reddit’s WallStreetBets group that made GameStop shares skyrocket last month?  Well, they’ve been using some of the money they made to adopt GORILLAS through the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund.  The charity thanked them on Twitter this week for helping raise over $300,000 in just two days.

3.  A guy in Texas named Marcos Perez has been donating blood every two weeks for 37 YEARS . . . specifically blood “platelets,” which take longer.

A blood transfusion saved his life as a baby.  So he started doing it in 1984, as soon as he was old enough.  And pretty soon, he’ll hit the ONE-THOUSAND mark.  This was his 962nd blood donation . . . and he’s helped just under 3,000 people.

4.  A couple in Florida moved into a new house, and knew it might be tough to make friends during a pandemic.  So they came up with a brilliant idea.  They set up a table out front with a sign that said, “Free Beer.”
