Cloud Shaped Like Winnie the Pooh Delights the Internet
Go ahead and smile.
The internet went wild Thursday over a photo of a cloud resembling Winnie the Pooh.
The photo was taken during an outdoor children’s charity event in Dorset, England, for a group called Children’s Heart Surgery Fund. The group is a charity that gives support to children and adults born with Congenital Heart Defects and their families. It provides equipment, resources, and research.
Publications from all over the world wrote stories about the bear-shaped cloud. Tweets and other social media posts went viral.
Is it Photoshopped? Who knows. And it doesn't really matter. It's a magical sight that is bringing people joy.
And no, it doesn't have much to do with extreme poverty. But part of being a Global Citizen is recognizing that while yes, there’s lots of bad stuff in this world, there’s also a lot of good, and when you see something that makes you smile, you share it with your friends. Especially if those friends are Christopher Robin, Eeyore, and Tigger.
Ta ta for now!
