“Why did you start Good News Shared?”
This is a question I get asked a lot. The answer is simple.
I want everyone to know about the good stuff happening in the world.
I started Good News Shared six months ago determined to highlight the impact the charity sector has on the world. I was working for a small national charity supporting isolated and lonely older people across the country when I had the idea for Good News Shared. The services we were providing at the charity were clearly helping the people we were supporting. The problem was because the general public didn’t know about us and our service it was difficult to reach the older people we were trying to help. I wanted to start something that would help people find out about the incredible things happening in the world and opportunities available to them.
Having worked and volunteered for charities for almost 15 years, I know of a lot of amazing work being done within the sector. I want everyone else to know too. I am passionate about the sector, and hope Good News Shared will help people outside the sector learn more about what charities do and achieve.
Since starting Good News Shared it has developed to include charitable acts people have done for others, as well as work registered charities are doing.
I will take a look at some of the other developments from the first six months of Good News Shared in the next blog post.
