#GIVEGREGTHEHOLIDAY

One man’s request for a day off goes viral and he’s got the whole company behind him.

A simple email sparked a huge social media campaign and earned a security guard a free trip to Vegas.

It started when Greg Heaslip’s manager, at UK company Arcadia, accidentally sent his vacation request to all 3500 of his co-workers.

Some of them started tweeting #givegregtheholiday.

Then others joined in, including a business across the street that spelled out “Greg” in post-it notes on their window and tweeted, “We’re in the offices opposite Arcadia, so it would be rude not to back Greg.” #givegregtheholiday.

Then, travel company Trek America offered Greg a free trip to Vegas for his holiday and later tweeted a picture of this t-shirt.

Greg got the holiday, and the shirts are selling for 35 bucks a piece.

EARTH DAY SELFIES

On Earth Day, NASA asked people around the world for selifes and then did something really cool with them.

NASA collected 50,000 selfies from across the globe off social media sites.

They were able to use 30,000 of those to create a mosaic of photos that will allow you to zoom in and look for your picture.  Click here to see it.

CBS 11 evening anchor Karen and I submitted one, but I haven’t been able to find it!

FREEMAN ON HELIUM

We’ve heard his voice in documentaries, movies and commercials, but never has Morgan Freeman sounded like this.

That’s Freeman on helium and promoting an upcoming episode of “Through the Wormhole” for the Science Channel.
