Where to Find the Good News
The good news, though, is that there are growing sources reporting good news!
Whether it’s a site to visit for uplifting stories globally, or a newsletter in your inbox reminding you of things getting better, consciously tuning into uplifting reports is an easy way to support your good vibe and balance out negativity.
Founded by Geri Weis-Corbley in 1997, the Good News Network serves as an antidote to the barrage of negativity experienced in the mainstream media.
The Good News Network was founded as a clearinghouse for the gathering and dissemination of positive news stories from around the globe. For years our daily dose of ‘News to Enthuse’ has confirmed for thousands of fans what we already knew to be true — that good news itself is not in short supply; the broadcasting of it is.
The editor Norman Cousins once said, “If news is not really news unless it is bad news, it may be difficult to claim we are an informed nation.” Geri is doing a fabulous job to make sure we’re properly informed.
Headquartered in Austin, Texas, the Happy News credo is:
“We believe virtue, goodwill and heroism are hot news. That’s why we bring you up-to-the-minute news, geared to lift spirits and inspire lives. Add in a diverse team of Citizen Journalists reporting positive stories from around the world, and you’ve got one happy place for news.”
Its role is to show that there is hope; people are making a difference; and that a lot of things are getting better.
