Just ask Alexa!
There’s so much bad news in the world today, it’s enough to get anyone down in the dumps.
Alexa to the rescue to remind you of the good stuff happening out there too!
Say, “Alexa, tell me some good news” and she’ll share a happy news storyfrom around the globe. It could be twin pandas being born in Madrid, or an entrepreneur doing innovative work to help the planet.
Say, “Alexa, tell me something good” and she’ll give you a fun fact, like the largest snowflake ever recorded. (Per Guinness World Records, it was 15 inches in diameter and 8 inches thick, found in Montana in 1887. That makes me smile just thinking about it!)
