ICYMI: Oh, man. That was a hard week.
“Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends
Oh, I get high with a little help from my friends
Yes, I get by with a little help from my friends
With a little help from my friends”
— Paul McCartney + John Lennon
With a Little Help From My Friends
It was another hard week. The news cycle was pretty relentless
We’ve tried to round up a few bright spots alongside the news that is hard to hear but worth noting.
Also, with all the information and talking heads, we know it is hard to discern what we should be doing (or not doing) and what guidance we should be following. We’ve collected a few links from the experts – the World Health Organization, namely – to help you find unbiased and fact-based information.
Finally, the Kingpins team is working on two big projects right now that will help keep us all connected and informed. The first is our new website – which will launch on March 30.
The second is still in development, but we are working furiously to bring it to you. Stay tuned!
And stay safe.
