I was Googling in an attempt to find something to write about that starts with the letter H. You see, I’m blogging the alphabet and the subject I had in mind for the letter H became a bit controversial so I needed to find something to replace it.
My search resulted in finding this amazing digital publication called Headlines for the Hopeful, News for a Better Future. I don’t think there is another publication that is more in line with my values, so I want to share it with my community, in case you don’t already know about it.
Headlines for the Hopeful’s mandate is to celebrate those people and organizations that are doing things that make the world a better place. The categories on which they report include the environment, science and technology, animal welfare, and work being done for those less fortunate.
If you visit the magazine today, and I really encourage you to do so, you can read about how poetry is helping those with Alzheimer, how several organizations partnered to provide free veterinary care to homeless pet owners in New York City, and the work being done by the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
Co-Founders Helaina Hovitz and Charlie Towne both have journalism backgrounds. Hovitz has written for a variety of impressive publications and she held staff positions for other digital magazines prior to launching Headlines for the Hopeful. Towne’s experience is in broadcast journalism.
The short, inspirational video you will find on the About page says, “We focus on the facts and solutions for a better tomorrow.” The video goes on to say that they want to affect a better future through the stories they write and share.
Law of Attraction
As a law of attraction student and practitioner, I understand how focusing on, rehashing and getting stuck in the negative energy of poor behaviour, horrific situations, and injustices can weigh us down. When I read such stories I feel hopeless, and that is not the optimal energy for igniting ideas for how I can help those that are victims of those situations.
Instead, I concentrate on the do-gooders, the innovators, the humanitarians, the healers, the people that are doing great things, big and small, for the planet and its inhabitants. Those are the stories I want to read. Those are the stories that inspire me to do what I can in my own community. If more people read these stories and are likewise inspired, image the impact we could make. As the short video also states, “Hope is contagious.” That is so true!
It is my pleasure to share the stories of the people and organizations that are doing wonderful things that support us and makes the world a better place.
Let’s share these stories of positive impact and spread hope!
