Good News! Fri, Aug 25, 2017
I don't know if you're anything like me in this way, but it seems that as I've gotten older it's become easier to be deeply affected by the many difficult things happening across the world. From natural disasters to political/racial tensions to humanitarian crises and everything in between, it just feels like the presence of social media has made it easier than ever to be consumed by the pain and negativity and hurt across the world.
Which makes Branden Harvey's Good Newsletter that much more important and necessary. What started as a podcast (Sounds Good with Branden Harvey) has turned into the Goodnewspaper (a subscription newspaper filled with good news and stories), the Goodnewsletter (a weekly email filled with good news and stories), and an online community of hundreds of thousands of positive world changers.
The Goodnewsletter has become my favorite part of every Tuesday. It's an awesome way to hear about the amazing things that incredible people across the world are doing on a daily basis and it's a welcomed respite from the onslaught of not-so-good-news that we get from the more mainstream outlets.
In this week's Goodnewsletter, the Good team recounted the heroics of one woman in the Barcelona attack, the ways that Israelis are risking their lives to save Syrian refugees at the border, and how a group of Australian researchers made a breakthrough in curing children of peanut allergies.
If you want a little extra good in your inbox every week, go to https://www.goodgoodgood.co/goodnewsletter to subscribe. I also highly recommend the Sounds Good podcast if you're into that sort of thing. In fact, a friend and former co-worker at Invisible Children, Jedidiah Jenkins, was on the podcast last year. That episode (http://soundsgood.libsyn.com/jedidiah-jenkins-the-adventure-of-curiosity) might get you hooked on the podcast in the same way it did for me.
