I had a connection with Shauna Crockett-Burrows giving her some help as she was setting up a charity based around Positive News twenty years ago. Now nice to be a shareholder after all those years.
Had a subscription for several years - couldn't be more pleased that you are doing this - really believe in what you are doing. I started buying Positive News for mental health reasons because I care about stuff but main media so negative-drama-biased. (Kept in the loo for daily sanity boosts!) There is so much amazing stuff going on in the world right now and it should be reported. All the love and luck to you. You guys rock.
Positive News has always been a great source of positive stories about our national and international institutions. keep up the good work!
We are Natalie and Kim Ellis co-owners of The Joinery www.thejoinery.co.za from South Africa. We create ethical organic and slow fashion and believe that more positive stories will uplift communities. We are proud to be a part of Positive News. Perhaps you can write a story about our the positive impact we are having on our local communities. :)
Congratulations guys! Very excitied about this project and hopefully we will bump into each other some day at the hub in London. We're at Hub Westminster. - Vineeta & Tom @eatwholegrain
