Transcript for Michelle Obama launches weekly online children’s story time for quarantined families
Good morning, you guys. Happy Monday, everybody. We've got a lot to talk about beginning with former first lady Michelle Obama on a mission to make Mondays a whole lot sweeter for families in quarantine, launching Mondays with Michelle Obama today 12:00 noon. Here's Mrs. Obama with a special message about her exciting new program. Listen up. Hi. I'm Michelle Obama and welcome to Mondays with me, a series of stories with pbs kids and penguin random house. I hope you enjoy Mondays with me, and I can't wait to see you next week. For the next four weeks the former first lady will read a beloved children's book each Monday, again, noon eastern. She says, quote, I'm excited to give kids a chance to practice their reading and hear some wonderful stories and to give parents and care takers a much needed break. You guys can all read along with Michelle starting today 12:00 eastern on the pbs kids or penguin random house Facebook pages. So check those out. Also in the news this morning, mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher giving us all something we can say cheers to. Take a look. These are unprecedented times that we're living in, and unprecedented times call for unprecedented -- More drinking. That's not what you were going to say. I was going to say unprecedented measures. You said more drinking. We had fun testing the wine and it was delicious but 100% of the profits will go to charities. Charities, yeah. That's what I meant to say. Here's a toast to you. Cheers. And to everything you're doing. A toast to you guys too. You heard it right there, 100% of the profits going to charities the couple has chosen to provide relief during the pandemic. We're talking families in need, struggling small businesses and also providing much needed ppe for health care workers on the front lines. Ashton goes on to say in that video that since they've been quarantining at home as fame with their kids, they have been enjoying some virtual happy hours with friends and looking for ways to help which is how they came up with the idea. If you're wondering about the bottle, it includes a blank label on the front so you can write in who or what you are toasting to when you pour a glass. The wine is a fine pinot Na wire from Oregon. It costs $50 for two bottles. Again, all profits going to charities. You can buy quarantine wine at official quarantine wine.com. Great idea from the Kutcher family. Finally, amazing video to share with you this morning. Talk about accuracy. Check this out. Two terrific tennis players figuring out how to get their practice session in during Italy's lockdown. Look at this, using rooftops as their court and a space between their buildings as the net. Hard to imagine how they are so accurate and not terrified of falling. Look at this. She rips this shot. The video has been shared millions of times all over the world. Just amazing. I am so inspired and slightly jealous of that forehand. Guys, that is all we have for you this morning. "Pop news" time is over. All right. Thank you, Lara. That was amazing. Impressive. That was very impressive.
