From VIS – “First Light Facts” – Starting your day in a positive way.

Get your day off to a positive start, four days a week, with a quick read that is entertaining, informative, and often both. (By “quick,” we mean under two minutes!) “First Light Facts” topics include heroes you might not know, or know much about (including volunteers); surprising things animals do; “wow” facts about common items we use; quick quizzes to test your word power or movie knowledge; simple explanation of terms you’ve begun to hear in the news but don’t have time to check out for yourself; the many ways curiosity has led to great discoveries; things you’ve always wondered about; and candy. (Yes! Candy is in the regular rotation, in a sugar-free message.)

Pledge: “First Light Facts” will always be factual (no opinion), and always positive (nothing controversial.)

If you believe, as we do, that positive information is good for your mental hygiene and all-around well-being, go to, give us your email address, and we will start your free subscription. Also, if you find yourself looking forward to “First Light Facts,” please bookmark and send a link to your staff, volunteers, board members, family members, friends… anyone who needs to start the day in a positive way (and who doesn’t?) Or just forward any day’s message to them. Anyone can start a free subscription by emailing the request to That email address is below the day’s message.
