CeCe is the founder of What's Good USA. Her passion to spread Good news started in 2003 when she worked at a major television news station. CeCe would leave work everyday bothered because seemingly only negative news was continously being highlighted. She thought her passion for spreading good news had ended when she left the news station in 2005, however, on December 14, 2012 the burning passion to spread Good news was reignited as a result of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy.
"....this is when I knew I had to follow my passion and 3 months later What's Good USA was born. It brings me great joy to find and help spread Good news. A little Good news can help to restore the good in all mankind."

Waiter Michael Shafts works two jobs just to make ends meet. But on this day, his financial situation just got a little better, thanks to a gift of a lifetime he received from a complete stranger.
Michael showed up for his shift at The Ginger Man restaurant just like on any other day, but this day was about to become very special!
Seated at one of his tables, was a couple who was celebrating the husband’s birthday. The husband had a very special birthday surprise in store–not for himself, but for Michael!
Toward the end of their meal, the wife gestured that she had something to tell Michael. ‘My husband has done something special for you.’ the wife whispered to Michael, about the surprise he was about to find.
Mere moments later, Michael learned the stunning truth about his surprise. . . a $1,000 tip for him on a $114 check!‘It was surreal. I was shaking. I couldn’t feel my legs,’ Michael said.
The man, who wished to remain anonymous, had written on the receipt, ‘My birthday present to me. Pay it forward!’
When Michael overcame his shock, he couldn’t stop thanking the generous man.
‘I shook his hand, I hugged him twice, and I said it was too much, twice.’
Restaurant owner Julie Bryon said she was happy for Michael, ‘He’s a very hardworking young man. It couldn’t have happen to a nicer person". After receiving the generous gift, Michael still finished his shift at the restaurant. But what he did next stunned his coworkers. . .
He payed it forward right away, sharing more than half the tip with the other servers and kitchen staff.
God bless this generous couple, and the kind waiter who shared his unexpected windfall with his co-workers!
