Media studies show that bad news far outweighs good news by as much as seventeen negative news reports for every one good news report. Is it likely that people will stop paying attention to bad news? Probably not. But, at GoodSpeaks we believe we can change how we respond to it.
We collect and organize nonprofit media and data by issue and news event, and distribute this bundled information to news organizations, publishers, and to the public. We do this to help connect stories about diseases, disasters, and crises directly to actionable and relevant 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.
