· You can rent Winnie the Pooh’s house on Air BNB. Pooh’s house is tucked away in the Sussex countryside where the A.A.

The listing includes a guided tour of the Hundred Acre Wood, play Poohsticks on Poohstick Bridge, and enjoy locally-source hunny-inspired meals. The house itself includes a Mr. Sanders plaque, plenty of comfy spots for napping, and honey pots lining the kitchen shelves.
· A Denver man and his daughter have delivered RVs to homeless families due to California wildfires. The tag team of Woody Faircloth and his 9-year-old daughter Luna formed the nonprofit EmergencyRV.org to pair people willing to donate campers to those in need. The idea came to Faircloth when he was watching T.V. news coverage of a California campfire that caused the destruction of hundreds of homes on Thanksgiving week. He pitched it to his daughter, and she was 100% on board. He started a Go Fund Me page for the first RV and as the word spread many people began to contact him on how they could. Due to this, Woody formed EmergencyRV.org to make helping the cause easier.
· Over the last two months, Faircloth and Luna have made the 40-hour-roundtrip from Denver to California and back on three separate weekends. With the help of others joining the cause, the duo has been able to deliver 95 RVs to displaced families across California. Woody on the way back from on of his delivery trips said this: “We are so lucky to be exhausted. We are so lucky to be able to go home soon. There are so many thanks yous to say that have not yet been said so to all of you—thank you.”
· In Vancouver, a new supermarket is opening specifically to get unwanted food and produce into the hands of people who need or want it. The supermarket called the Restored Food Market, created by the Food Stash Foundation, seeks to eliminate food waste into landfills across Canada. The surplus food is available on a pay what you feel basis to ensure that the food is bought instead of wasted. Its parent organization the Food Stash Foundation collects food from wholesalers, grocers, and farms, and delivers it to other organizations that combat food waste and food insecurity. They formed this supermarket to help get over 70,000 pounds of surplus food out of warehouses and to families in need. The Food Stash Foundation says, enormous amounts of CO2 are generated every year around the world from food decaying in landfills, and by rescuing it we’re not only saving money, but we’re also saving the planet.
