GoodSpeaks connects news stories about diseases, disasters, and crises directly to actionable and relevant nonprofit/NGO media, documenting these organizations' work on the ground as they improve the situation.
If disaster strikes, we will seek out the organizations who are helping the victims so people can learn what is being done about it. Where diseases threaten, we want to help people find, learn about, and support the organizations seeking a cure. Where we are destabilizing our natural environment, we'll figure out which groups are working on the solutions that will bring us in harmony with it and invite everyone to lend them their time, their voice, or financial support.
We are growing quickly and expanding our reach to publishers, news organizations, and to the public, now we just need the funds to help us keep up with demand! Please consider making a donation and/or joining us as a volunteer to help us get the word out about how to make bad news better, and please like us on Facebook, add us to your Google+ cirlces, and/or follow us on Twitter. THANK YOU!!
