So, while on holiday I had plenty of time to fall down an internet hole and trawl the web for fun and interesting things…
This brilliant video, courtesy of UNDP and Pharrell Williams, shows perfectly the fantastically upbeat spirit of the Filipino people, always ready to pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and start rebuilding, with a smile on their faces. I’ve already watched it about 8 times and it still makes me smile. The perfect antidote for the post-holiday blues!
While we’re on the subject of YouTube videos, here’s a few more that caught my eye.
This equally brilliant but far more depressing video from Save the Children tries to show people in the UK what it would be like if something like the situation in Syria happened to us, through the eyes of a child. Depressing but incredibly moving and sadly a stark reality for thousands of Syrian people in the last 3 years.
And on a more cheery note, this hilarious video of Things Cats do that would be creepy if humans did them. Cracks me up.
While we’re on the subject of funny things, this list of poorly chosen book titles made me laugh out loud too.
And how could I forget the fantastic Philomena Cunk’s Moments of Wonder? Genius.
So, those are a few of the things I found on the interwebs this month that made me laugh, smile, and think.
Now go watch the Happy video one more time to cheer yourself up!
