Everything isn’t always awesome … but LEGO parties can help. Hope Laugh Play hosts onsite LEGO Build Events at area hospitals, camps and schools in Charlotte and Atlanta.

Last week, we joined other Charlotte organizations in posting a sign-up link for the CLT Unity Letter, standing against letters of violence and racism that were recently sent to Queen City leaders of color. It was inspiring to see an ad placed featuring the names of over 3,725 individuals who chose to sign along with us. Click here to see a list of those who signed the letter.
The news broke last week that the iconic Dairy Queen on Central Avenue will close its doors at the end of October. The location has been in business since the 1950s and operated by the same family since the 1970s. Owners say they’d like to stay open. but they weren’t able to reach a lease agreement with their landlords. The walk-up soft serve shop has stayed a staple of the Plaza Midwood community for decades and many people are upset to see it go. Over the weekend, we reached out to a few stock images to ask what they thought about it all.
The Queen City creatives are constantly generating innovative initiatives to help each other. Here are two ways you can give … or get … help from our hometown creative community this week.

EASTSIDE PRIDE! Charlotte’s eastside is a strong, proud community with a vibrant collection of cultures and people, and this fresh mural puts that pride on full display.
