The news these days is often depressing at worst and frustrating at best. It’s easy to get caught up in the spin cycle and let it get us down.

Never fear… The News Blender has you covered. Once a week, we feature Something Good and, in return, all you have to do is tell us something good that has happened to you this week, something you are thankful for, a joke, a cute animal story, an inspiring tale of heroics, a Random Act of Kindness… SOMETHING good.

These stories are what the late President George H. W. Bush meant when he spoke of  “a thousand points of light” so many years ago. The light of American generosity and kindness shine on and always will shine on as long as we remain true to who we are. President Bush would be proud of the light shined by the secret Santas who helped the family who lost everything have a place to live and the immigrant brothers who drove thousands of miles to deliver help to fire victims. And, considering how George loved his own dogs, he would certainly say “good boy” to Sampson.

Now it’s your turn… Tell me Something Good.
