What a lovely idea for helping refugee kids adjust as they start school here in Philly. (Via Generocity.)

Another use for menstrual cups might be … conceiving? (Via Parents.com.)

Of course, this makes me cry, but also: People are good. 

Well this is smart and tragic. (Via WHYY)

Also good? Lego Foundation and Sesame Street, who are pairing up to help refugee children heal from trauma. Via NYT.

Also from Parents: Books for kids about adoption!

Hey, a Wharton guy has developed the Warby Parker of strollers! (And it looks truly cool.) From Fast Co.

This is the uplifting collection of photos we all need right now. From the Atlantic.

I enjoyed this, from the Strategist: If you enjoy this kitchen thing, you might also enjoy this kitchen thing. 

We’ve reached peak baby shark. 

Y’all! Flash sale for Diggerland!! (What a fun Christmas gift, no?)

New idea for a law: The only water elected officials are allowed to drink or bathe with or cook with is from the bodies of water right next to the farms, industrial facilities and oil companies whom they wish to deregulate. (Story from the NYT.)

Guys, there’s a ton of holiday fun for families in Chestnut Hill over the next few weeks. (Santa! A parade! Holiday Garden Railroad! And more!)

More holiday fun: You can make your own snow globe or (paper) stuffed fish at the Fairmount December 26 through December 28 at 11 a.m. at the drop-in Fairmount Waterworks Event, Let It Snow. 

And another thing — this one is a little different than the usual! You can still get tickets for brunch with Santa at Jose Garces’ Olde Bar, and it sounds pretty rad: There’s Santa, waffles, a build-your-own-hot-chocolate bar, a milk-and-cookies station .. and more. It’s this Saturday, December 15, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and you can get tickets here. ($38 for grown-ups; $25 for kids 12 and under; FREE for kids 2 and under.)
