Evening, folks! There's a lot of bad news in the world, and, whilst it's important to discuss that, the good news is often overlooked as a result. For this reason, #FeelGoodFridays is a new idea to try and round up some of the more positive stories of the week
So here's the breakdown for the 30th January - 3rd February!
1. Children’s Hospital Gives People a Way to Send Valentines to Patients
A hospital in Michigan has been encouraging people to send their residents Valentine's Day cards, so that the children there can enjoy the day too, and to put a smile on their faces! The cards can be sent from their website, and feature messages such as 'You're DINO-mite', and 'I Dig You'.
2. A stranger is leaving envelopes with a £10 note inside at secret locations
A man from Cardiff has been leaving envelopes around the city with £10 notes in them, and posting clues on social media about where to find them. The only rule for the winner? You can't spend the money on yourself. He's been doing it as a part of a challenge to himself to carry out 403 good deeds.
3. Fireman was forced to deliver baby girl during emergency call - then he adopted her
After realising that a women at his emergency call wasn't going to make it to the hospital in time to give birth, Marc Hadden was forced to deliver the baby at the scene. This in itself being a life changing incident, the story gets even more heart warming after he and his wife decided to welcome the baby into their family after the birth parents put her up for adoption. Just 48 hours after the emergency call, they'd already signed the adoption papers, and welcomed Grace into their home!
Are there any big stories you think have been missed? Or any other ones you'd like to add? Discuss them here, and let's see how many we can find
