The Good Stuff

Every Monday we'll be sharing the good stuff with you.

We need some good right now — thoughts, ideas, actions and (actual) goods. Here are a few on our radar:

A Good Idea 

If we name it, we can manage it: "The goal is to find balance in the things you’re thinking. If you feel the worst image taking shape, make yourself think of the best image. We all get a little sick and the world continues. Not everyone I love dies. Maybe no one does because we’re all taking the right steps. Neither scenario should be ignored but neither should dominate either." Harvard Business Review 

A Good Evening

Our friends at Civlization have come up with a brilliant idea to support artists and galleries in The Fold's hometown of Seattle. By The Hour is a live broadcast taking place on April 2, during what would normally be First Thursday Art Walk in the gallery district of Pioneer Square. There will be gallery tours, live interviews and a representation of various artists' work throughout the one hour broadcast. "Tune in" from 6:30–7:30 pm! 

A Feel Good Purchase

While we realize financial strains and uncertainty are at the forefront of all of our minds, we want to encourage you to shop small and local whenever possible. Supporting independent creators means everything right now.*Look for directory to help you find most anything you need in our some of our favorite cities on The Fold very soon!

A Good Cause

#savewithstories is a partnership between Save the Children and No Kid Hungry where celebrities are reading stories aloud via Instagram. The orgs are asking for donations for school and community programs to feed the most vulnerable during this time. Every bit helps.

A Good Laugh

Quarantine FOMO: "It can be so hard to judge what really is better for your health: a more intense workout of jumping up and down in place in front of your stove or a more relaxed workout of floor yoga poses beneath your bed. Either way, I’ll know that someone, somewhere, is having a Google Hangout without me." The New Yorker

A Good Listen

Though we advise limiting social media to what feels healthy to you right now, we can attest to the healing properties of watching your favorite musician belt out a few tunes from their home studios, bedrooom or even their porch. A few that we have been following of late, which you can rewatch at any time are: Ben Gibbard's Live From Home; Sera Cahoone and Deep Sea Diver  + more options here.

Dear Taurus: Sometimes disagreement brings out the worst in people, but this month it is the impetus for real change - not because you engage in the head-butting but because it motivates you to actually do something about what's causing it.
