We could all use a little positivity

We could all use a little positivity right now. All anyone, including the news can talk about is COVID-19. Things can seem scary with no end in sight. Personally, in any bleak situation, I always look for the good. And when I have good news I want to share it with others. Since we are all social distancing right now, that can be difficult.  So this post isn’t going to be about compression garments, it is going to be all about good news from around the world. I invite you to share your good news with us and others who might need a pick me up in the comments below. We can create our own community of good things right here!

Get in on the action and spread some colorful cheer in your own community.
