GOOD NEWS NEW ENGLAND: SUNDAY, MARCH 21ST, 2021

Here’s your positive news roundup for Sunday, March 21st! Here are the highlights featured in this week’s episode (video link below!).

Imagine shotgunning a beer in the shower and using the excuse, “But it’s for charity!” This week, Kelsey Roth of Exhibit A Brewing in Framingham did exactly that- and it paid off to the tune of over a thousand dollars that all went to the Special Olympics. Great work, Kelsey!

Playing bingo with Rob Gronkowski and his (gorgeous) supermodel girlfriend Camille Kostek sounds like something you might think would be a weird dream, right? This week, it actually happened! The pair hosted a virtual bingo night to benefit Dana Farber & The Jimmy Fund. As you might imagine, it was a hit: all $65,000 raised went straight to charity.

Tired of tripping over old legos, or ready to purge your collection in a spring cleaning sweep? Let Lego themselves do the work of getting them in the hands of kids in need for you! Thanks to their Replay Program, you can now print out a shipping label, slap it on a box and send them back to the company who will do all the sanitizing & distributing for you. Where will they end up? Lego partners with organizations like the Boys & Girls Club of Boston and Teach For America to make sure the blocks land in the right hands.
