Have we got good news for you!
We'd never think we would say this on day 13, but we are very pleased to let you know that we're almost two-thirds of the way there! In the 3 days since our last update, a whopping £37,000 has been added to the total, which means we're now at £130,245! The group of investors has grown to 634 people and you are joining us from all corners of the world.
Some of you had never heard of us before, others have been readers since the very first edition. To all of you, we'd like to say a massive thanks for becoming co-owners. We are immensely proud to have you on board.
Please keep adding your comments via social media or the website, as we love hearing your experiences and reasons for joining. Like these brand new co-owners, who said this morning: "Loved PN for past twenty years, now proud & very happy to be shareholders, we have bought these as an alternative second wedding anniversary present."
And another new co-owner who joined earlier this week: "Never heard of you guys before. But this is exactly the sort of structure & perspective that is lacking from the corporate media. Hopefully I'll see and help you guys grow!"
REMEMBER TO JOIN THE NEXT THUNDERCLAP BY MONDAY!
On Monday 22 June, we'll celebrate Positive News Co-Owners Day as a way to thank you all for being pioneers. To help, you can sign up to our next Thunderclap in one simple click with Facebook or Twitter, so that we’ll all spread the word automatically on Monday afternoon. We need 100 people to sign up, so please take a second to join in. Thanks!
HIGH PROFILE SUPPORT
Meanwhile, we're continuing to attract the attention of other media too. Our guest post on the Huffington Post was promoted to the front page and retweeted by Arianna Huffington herself, and authors including Peter Jukes, who covered the phone hacking trial in the UK, have expressed their support.
We're grateful to everyone who helps spread the word, as that remains our best chance of reaching future investors. You can share the campaign page with your friends and - if you haven't done so already - add your new role as co-owner of Positive News to your LinkedIn profile. Job changes get a lot more views than normal posts, so it's a very effective way to tell all your contacts about it. See the previous update for details on how to do it.
18 days and £69,755 to go. Will our collective energy, enthusiasm and reach be enough to make it all the way? Your fantastic support gives us the confidence to believe that together, we can change the news for good.
