Happy News 1

For those of you who know me personally, know that I am an avid article sharer on my social media accounts. I decided to consolidate some of the neat things that I find over the week to a Happy News blog post to make your week a little better.

Disclaimer: I am by no means any kind of reporter and I don’t claim that all of the articles I share are 100% factually correct. However, I will bring you NON-fake news to the best of my abilities!

Today’s the International Day of Happinessย and it’s the First Day of Spring!

Pretty fitting right?

This fundraiser comes after Love Army has raised over $2 million themselves for this cause. The world is awesome.

Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Common, and Vic Mensa are among the artists that are performing and joining the march.

Is “Infinity War” REALLY the most ambitious crossover ever?

The CN Tower Phase 1 Renovations are complete and the views are even better than before
