Dedicated to Julia and Jason…with LOVE
"The Rainbow Connection" was written for The Muppet Movie and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song in 1979. It is sung by Kermit as the movie's opening number and reprised by the whole cast of Muppets at the end of the movie. The single of this song reached #25 on Billboard's "Hot 100 Singles" chart in 1979.
Why are there so many songs about rainbows and what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions, and rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it.
I know they're wrong wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection.
The lovers, the dreamers and me.
Who said that wishes would be heard and answered when wished on the morningstar?
Someone thought of that and … [Continue reading...]

Courage Award at the ESPY Awards
I have had the pleasure to know Caitlyn Jenner since junior high school.
Caitlyn, Bruce to me at the time was co-captain with me of the track team.

Chanukah, oh Chanukah, come light the menorah! Thus begins the catchy children's song on which the background music to our new card is based.
Hanukkah is unusually late this year, starting on 24th December and running for eight days until January 1st, so the timing is just right to send this card to all your Jewish friends!
And Christmas Day is nearly upon us too, so it seems like a good time to review the season's bumper crop of new cards. We've had the nostalgic White Christmas, the interactive fun of Christmas Lights, the delightful story of The Little Shepherd, and the destructive mayhem of Snow Glow – not to mention two pretty new note cards.
It's always worth noting at this time of year that while you'd normally only send a single paper Christmas card to each of your … [Continue reading...]
Sadly theres a severely underserved demographic in our midst: homeless transgender individuals. Even in a city like San Francisco, known for inclusivity towards the LGBTQ community, a countless number of trans men and women end up on the streets.
With this in mind, I thought Good News Broadcasts readers would want to know help is on the way! Joans House, a San Francisco non-profit transitional shelter in the works, will cater specifically to transgender persons and cis women. Its the brain child of Michelle-Lael Norsworthy, most notably known for setting a precedent in 2015 for the State of California being required to pay for gender reaffirming surgery for transgender inmates in the case Norsworthy v. Beard. She was inspired to create Joans House following her release from prison … [Continue reading...]

Riley Unlikely Shares the Journey of a Remarkable Teenager
Finding a Love for Kenyan Children and a Mission to Build a School
Grand Rapids, Mich., June 2016 — At the age of 13, Riley Banks-Snyder traveled to Kenya where she sat in a classroom full of first and second graders sharing a single pencil. The presents Riley was so excited to give the kids paled in importance to the school supplies that were easily accessible back home in Branson, MO. Riley realized these kids didn’t need matchbox cars or jump ropes. They needed pencils and paper.
As soon as her plane touched down in America, Riley knew she wanted to go back. At the age of 14, Riley started a non-profit, Generation Next, to help collect school supplies for Kenyan schools and returned the following year with 200 backpacks … [Continue reading...]
