The RI Good News Round Up

Here at RI we like to be as positive as we can, even in a time of uncertainty. To give you (and us, tbh) some light relief, we’ll be rounding up the good news we’ve come across as well as the latest from our #IslandersAtHome and some cute animal pics for good measure. Were you a fan of our weekly Trending Now feature? Don’t worry, we’ll still be sharing our Celeb Moment and Funniest Tweet! Let’s go…


Lockdown 3.0 might not be the way we imagined starting the New Year, but we're all in it together and we're sending you love and strength! Don't forget, our community is always open.

Juliana Fetherman made an app for her brother, who has autism and ADHD, so that he and other people with special needs can connect and make friends! The app is called ‘Making Authentic Friendships’.

While we may not love the cold (anyone else really struggling?) there are some adorable creatures that do! If you love polar bears, follow @polarbearsinternational.

We still don’t know his name, but we do know what he looks like! Yes, Nicki Minaj released the cutest pics of her son. Head to her insta to peep ‘Papa Bear’.

Lockdown 3 is the third instalment of the trilogy that no one asked for, but we can find joy in some of the things we did the first-time round. Baking anyone? Try something other than banana bread though…

They truly do make us feel like a scientist…
