Our reader ownership is going global
It's day 17 of our #OwnTheMedia Community Share Offer and we are thrilled to announce that thanks to your fantastic support we are now 72% of the way there!
Even more exciting is that you are joining us from near and far. From the Channel Islands to Australia, Mexico to the Maldives, and throughout the UK, 741 people have so far invested £144,235. The UK tops the list with the most co-owners, followed by the US, New Zealand, Ireland and the Netherlands.
We are getting ever nearer to the funding target of £200,000 and have 2 weeks left to make it all the way. We're grateful to everyone who helps spread the word, as that remains our best chance of reaching future investors.
Imagine if all 741 of us shared the project link and got just one other person to join as owners: that would bring us very close to the end goal indeed.
To make things easy, we have put together some sample tweets and Facebook posts for you, together with shareable images. You can download them all here.
Here's one more example you can copy right away, but feel free to spread the word in whichever way you like!
Meanwhile on Facebook, we asked our readers why the world needs more Positive News. Dozens of you replied and the responses were inspiring. As one new co-owner explained:
"Too much negativity in the media makes people feel powerless to create change. While it's important to draw attention to all the injustice in the world, there are good things happening too, and knowing about them gives people inspiration and hope that those negative things could be turned around too!"
Thanks for investing in the future of Positive News, and thanks for sharing your passion, vision and ideas. Your words and actions continue to inspire us.
14 days to go. Let's give it all we've got!
The Positive News Team
