ICYMI: In Case You Missed It

Greetings, fellow pop culture aficionados, and welcome to week 16 of our I.C.Y.M.I. (In Case You Missed It) blog series. Our museum may be temporarily closed to visitors based on guidance from public health officials to slow the spread of coronavirus, but we're still here to recap a handful of trending tidbits from the past week(s) in popular culture, in case you missed them.

Last Friday, we explored an exciting muppets-related announcement from Disney+. This week, we begin with some uplifting news from our own state. Read on!

All In WA Community Relief Fund Introduced

This past week, a coordinated relief effort called All In WA was introduced statewide, as nonprofits, community leaders, businesses, and philanthropists joined forces to support workers and families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Governed by an advisory board, the inititiave aims to "fill the gaps in funding across the state," kicking off with $20 million in commitments towards an overall $65 million goal.

In addition to calling on Washingtonians for support, All In WA has plans to celebrate the state's strength with a concert for the cause. At 7 p.m. PT on Wednesday, June 24, All In WA will broadcast a virtual benefit featuring prominent artists with Seattle roots, including Pearl Jam, Brandi Carlile, Macklemore, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie, and more. Interested? You can stream the show at allinwa.org, on Amazon Music's Twitch channel, or find it on your Seattle-area NBC affiliate. 

Space Force Launches on Netflix
