Good News Still Exists: Here Are 5 Heartwarming Headlines For Today
As we all push through another week of this global crisis, we are continuing to look for the acts of kindness that remind us of the good that still exists in the world. Here are some favorites from this week:

2. For hospitals that need essentials: Water producer Evian is donating over 195,000 to hospitals and health care workers in New York City. In another initiative to provide sustenance to hospitals and health care workers, breakfast bar company Over Easy has donated its bars to hospitals all across the country, keeping our health care workers healthy and energized. To help those working around the clock, Keurig Dr Pepper has launched an initiative titled "Fueling the Frontline," donating coffee, beverages, and Keurig brewers to hospitals nationwide.
3. To remind us that real beauty is on the inside: Dove has launched a new beauty campaign focused on honoring the efforts of health care workers across the world. Called "Courage Is Beautiful," the campaign consists of images of people working on the front lines, photographed by Alberto Giuliani.

Food and beverage corporation PepsiCo has partnered with No Kid Hungry to provide meals to children who are missing out on their school-provided meals due to closure.
