Rays of sunshine in COVID-19 

Dear <<First Name>>

For many Australians daylight savings has now kicked in. A time of year where the extra hours of sunlight bring optimism and hope.

Speaking of hope. At the time of this email hitting your inbox, it appears as though many areas that have been experiencing lockdown for the past few months are about to get some much-needed relief.

In the coming weeks as stores begin to reopen and services become more available, be sure to support local small businesses, enjoy being reunited with your family and friends, and continue to stay safe. 

We hope that this edition of Rays of Sunshine brings some light to your long weekend.  

Share some sunshine with a friend or subscribe to future editions.

Smiles and laughs...

It's called art dah-ling

Museum baffled after artist takes the money and runs- but was there a breach of contract?

Pure joy

The cutest and most joyful thing you will see today in home-video form. Feel free to watch on repeat. 

Searching for yourself 

Man spent hours helping a search party, only to realise that they were in fact looking for him.... 

Grooms got the moves

This groom's ceremony entrance video goes to show that it's not always about the bride. Try following that! 

Good news...

Silly Billy's 

This 11 years old’s small business idea is spreading little balls of yellow happiness and sunshine across Australia. 

Checkout & chat

A Dutch supermarket has introduced “chat checkouts” to help to combat loneliness among the elderly.

Staying entertained...

Gigs at home

Get front row seats for the world’s most popular virtual DJ right now DJ Kooze (and possibly the happiest). Mixing sets seamlessly from his LA studio direct to your lounge room. All your favourite tunes from across the decades- no genre or style left untapped. 

Augment your reality

Seeing the Invisible is an augmented reality contemporary art exhibition. From Sept 2021 to Aug 2022 it will premiere across 12 botanic gardens in six countries simultaneously, with Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne and Cranbourne as the exclusive Australian locations.

Snail mail adventures 

For wannabe explorers of all ages. Letters From Afar are an explorer's tale delivered monthly by mail. A portion of all proceeds is given to a fantastic non-profit called Pencils of Promise, helping access to education.

Rainbow flight

Nature sure is special. This unedited footage of a black Jacobin hummingbird in flight was captured by photographer Christian Spencer in Rio de Janeiro. The diffracted sunlight causes a mesmerising prism effect.
