What should we do about the world falling apart? You know—the rise in hate crime, marked partisanship, loss of democracy, weakened institutions, and so on?
Yeah. It’s tough. Let me know when you figure it out.
In the meantime, I’ve been following a crowdfunding campaign for a product I really like. Check out the video to see what it’s all about:
Introducing the Goodnewspaper: a printed newspaper that celebrates the people, ideas and movements that are changing the world.
Here’s how the creator explains it:
2016 was deemed by many to be one of the worst years in a very long time. 2017 isn’t off to the best start either.
The Goodnewspaper is a reminder that there’s good news in the world to be hopeful about, a map for how to move from feeling helpless to taking action, and a tool for those confused on how to get involved in the march against division, terrorism, fear and injustice.
It helps you celebrate good news by sharing hopeful stories you might not know about, and helps you become good news by providing tangible action steps on how to make a difference in the world in big and small ways. The stories and tools inside will leave you feeling less overwhelmed, and more capable of being a part of the good in the world.
Pretty cool, huh? I love this project and made a pledge myself.
If you’re reading this after the campaign is over, well, you can still check it out! It will be going for at least a year.
