“Just wanted to say THANK YOU for existing! Thank you for spreading the love, the care, the good news and show the good in humans!!! If everyone makes a conscious choice of watching positive, uplifting contents, they wouldn't be angry, depressed all the time. Each one of us can get inspired and influenced to make a good action. It doesn't have to be huge. Just a little smile, hello in the elevator, holding the doors etc... The positivism and good actions can be contagious. Hope every one gets infected! Have a great day and god bless all!” –Christal Torres
“Good News Network is an amazing find for me. I stopped watching the news on TV, listening to the radio, and discontinued my donations to Public Radio last year because of the explosive and exploited media that was generated throughout all the stations. It is really dumbing us down. I have traveled to 37 countries and experienced the lives of many cultures and find that we all want happiness, basic respect and want to proud of where we live. The media has created such divisions within our countries to the point where educated people have biases with not an ounce of true experiences, knowledge, or reason. Often times when I return from my travels, friends, acquaintances, and family ask me: ‘Is it dangerous over there? Did you feel afraid that your life was in danger?’ Why do we assume that any place has different values than the place we live or that someone out of our inner circle is a threat? People need to get out of their bubble and explore new place and build new relationships to discover that our world is not the scary place that the mass media portrays it to be.” –April Choi
“I was thrilled to find GNN and I read and share stories all the time. You're doing a necessary work in a society dominated by bad news. There are bad things we all need to be aware of, to be sure, but there's a lot of good happening in the world, and people need to read the good alongside the bad to maintain hope for a better future.” –Jonathan Leger
“THANK YOU for this site! I love getting inspired, encouraged and reminded of the many wonderful ways people are making a positive difference in our world. I am determined to increase my compassion for others ... You should get some kind of award. We need more of this and of you.” –Brenda Zallito
I was sitting and praying and the thought entered my mind to Google search 'good news' and there you were! You are now # 1 on my FAV bar. Keep it up, for the sake of mankind. - Tom McGraw, Jul 24, 2014
"The key to the future of the world is finding optimistic stories and letting them be known." -Pete Seeger (1919 – 2014)
As a parent, small business owner, and citizen I congratulate you on having such a wonderful website. It lifts my heart, gives me courage, and renews my belief in ALL humankind when I read the stories you highlight. I tell everyone I meet about your wonderful and noble quest.

I realize how this event (the "Miracle on the Hudson") had touched people's lives, how ready they were for good news, how much they wanted to feel hopeful again. We've had a worldwide economic downturn, and people are confused, fearful and just so ready for good news. They want to feel reassured that all the things we value, all our ideals, still exist. - Captain "Sully" Sullenberger
I have a 7 year old son and we don't watch TV, listen to the news, or read newspapers because so much of it is negative and full of pain and hate -- things his little body does not need. I am SO thrilled to be able to show him stories on your Website and talk to him about the positive, Good work that is occurring here on Earth. You have given me a safe place where I can allow my son to browse and follow the stories that interest him. Thank you! - Esther Colwell
Every day I get to work in the morning, get my coffee, jump online and read the news. Every day I go home sad and depressed... Then I found your site and after reading the first story I immediately felt my spirits lift and I never went home sad again. Reading ordinary news we get a sense that that's all there is, but your site reminds us the world is not as bad as the news would lead us to believe. Thank you for everything.
-Sean Nolan, New Zealand
I am amazed at the change in my mood and the way I look at everything now. I am reading your site every day and l love it. Thank you very much for your beautiful work. It is something very much needed.

I want to tell you that your Good News Network has helped me through bad times in my life when I struggled through anxiety and depression and sometimes doubts of faith. I check your website everyday and it gives me hope, comfort, and reassurance more than words can say. - Cambry
Visiting GNN is actually at the top of my self care list. Working in the mental health field means, among other things, passing along helpful tools like your site. And I have told so many people about it.

Your Top 10 good newsletter today was so good. It lifted my spirits more than any other issue. A couple items even choked me up. People need to know the good stuff that is happening, to inspire them to greater heights. We need to know that our efforts are paying off, that we can build a paradise -- and we’re doing it. Thank you for singing this from the hilltops... a most valuable, important service. -Tony Milch, Burbank, CA
After being in several very depressing conversations with seemingly EVERYONE about the high price of gas, the state of the economy and upcoming presidential election, I don't think I've even smiled in a few days - until I found your site... You've gently reminded me that there is a lot in the world to smile about. Perspective is everything, and despite what appears in mainstream news, good does happen - a lot more than I was lead to believe. - Stacey Long, Hayward, CA
I am totally sick of hearing about murders, drugs, and all the rubbish the commercial networks bombard us with. I am not sticking my head in the sand. It's just that I think, enough is enough. I get depressed as it is, without hearing about all the negative stuff in the world. Thanks for making my day.

The platform for my work is Albert Einstein's 'Knowing' that the only way to change anything is to change the thinking that created it. He lived by this knowledge. The Good News Network is helping people everywhere do exactly that.

I just needed some good news for a change. Thank you. You've taken a bit of the edge off a blue day. -Trevor in Canada
I am just getting into the swing of things after some health concerns. Reading your site daily in the past few months was important for me and a great resource. I am back in fine form, and your site really helps me stay positive and focused on my business. It's exactly the type of effective positive strategy I teach in my seminars.
