Good News In A Minute: $14M Fundraising Flashmob Saves Education

Good News brought to you in a minute! We are on a mission to find the good news in some very important and noteworthy national and community topics, bundled up in a positive, inspiring infographic short video. After all, Good news is meant to be shared!

In our first 'good news report' we highlight the good works of Mr. Stephen Colbert. You may know him from his CBS talk show 'Late Night With Stephen Colbert' or his former 'Colbert Report,' or from his charitable deeds. He first got involved with DonorsChoose.org when he auctioned off his iconic anchor desk and fireplace hearth and gave the money to South Carolina school systems. Then Colbert inspired #BestSchoolDay, a call to action for people to fund supplies and resources for classrooms in need across America.

"#BestSchoolDay is probably the best thing I've ever been involved in," Colbert says. "It's my favorite charity because teachers in classrooms all around the country can put up any project they want to teach their children or help their kids with but they don't have the funds for."

Fifty celebrities including Ashton Kutcher, Gwyneth Paltrow, Elon Musk, Sheryl Sandberg, and Tim Ferriss, athletes, business executives and more have joined in the cause, committing over $14 million in just one day and funding over 12,000 projects in communities spanning 47 states!

Their research focused on canine assistance for PTSD. Ultimately, they started a non-profit organization. K9s For Warriors, dedicated to providing service dogs to warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress and/or traumatic brain injury as a result of their military service (post 9/11).
