Transcript for Meghan and Harry ask fans to donate to select charities instead of gifts
Someday, someday whit will do the dance that he does during that animation of "Pop news" for America. But it's something to see. Gotta let the music fill your soul sometimes. It's something to see. It's a good beat. It's a hot beat. As your attorney, I wouldn't recommend it. Right now, people are busy on royal baby watch. The world is anxiously awaiting the arrival of Harry and Meghan's baby. So the question right now is, what do you get for a new royal family? The answer, apparently, is nothing. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple is using their new Instagram account to ask fans to instead donate to select charities for children and parents in need. And the best part here is, some of the charities that they have listed are already getting a big bump of support. The Royals using social media for good. They don't need a stroller? A diaper genie? They're going to need one of those. They can get one from Kate and wills. That's true. Hand me downs. You don't want a hand me down diaper genie. I know that from experience. On to better topics, shall we? One of the most enchanting running events on Earth is taking place right now. The "Star wars" rival run weekend just kicked off its half marathon a little bit ago. People are running and running in "Star wars" style. We have seen amazing costumes. Some runners seem to be using the force at the 5k event earlier in the weekend. 11-year-old D.J. Roberts marked a milestone. Completing his first ever 5k two years after losing his leg to cancer. Wow. We're told there wasn't a dry eye on the track when he crossed that finish line. A big congratulations to D.J. And the other runners. This is my favorite story of the day. Ditch the duster. Vacate the vacuum, people, because today is national no housework day. This is the day to remember what it's like to do absolutely nothing and not feel guilty about it. Or replace the housework with something enjoyable. You're welcome, America. That is pretty much every day for rob. Oh, come on. I think you need to look across the desk for that. These hands have no callouses. That's right. And finally, I failed in bringing food for "Pop news" this weekend. But how about a blanket that looks like food. Check out the tortilla baby blanket. The makers write, you know your baby looks good enough to eat. Now he or she can dress the part. For those of how Yo you who like the Blatche your babies, there's an adult tortilla blanket, as well. We don't have a picture. I'm looking forward to these guys trying that together. Thank you for watching. Stay tuned for george.together. Thank you for watching.
