Cavs All-Star Spreads The Love
Kevin Love may be a five-time NBA All-Star and one of the few remaining Cleveland Cavaliers from the 2016 championship team, but his off-court contributions are just as impressive. As part of Verizon’s Class of 2020: Ready for Anything virtual commencement series, Love joins a list of celebrities, including former President Bill Clinton, who will speak for 30 minutes, closing with an interactive Q&A. Every Friday will feature different speakers, with Love slated for tomorrow. The power forward was also named as a finalist for ESPN’s Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award thanks to his contributions to the mental health field, which include creating the Kevin Love Fund, an organization committed to normalizing mental health dialogue.

The Big Yellow Mailbox Delivers Hope At University Circle
What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever had to do? Now more than ever could be a time to confront that question rather than bury it, something that Allison Meyer learned after her mother’s death in a 2016 traffic accident. As a result, Meyer launched Never, Ever Give Up Cleveland, which collects anonymous, handwritten letters of hope answering that question in a yellow mailbox and displays them online and in public installations. In response to the pandemic, University Circle Inc. and Never, Ever Give Up Cleveland have teamed up to launch another mailbox in the University Circle East Plaza at the corner of Euclid Avenue and Mayfield Road. For more information, how to submit a letter and examples of previously submitted letters, head here.

Cleveland Gets A Glimpse Of Sunshine

But we’re finally seeing some sunlight at the end of the tunnel thanks to summer-ready weather that kicked off just in time for Memorial Day weekend. As we all slowly emerge from our homes and venture outdoors, the vitamin D is a welcome respite from the world.
