NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Jan. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Launched on Inauguration Day 2017, Project Great News curates inspiring stories that flow from the work of non-profits across the United States in an effort to change the conversations within our nation. By producing highly shareable content often in the form of short videos, the website (www.ProjectGreatNews.com) is attracting the attention of non-profit leaders and social media users alike.
"While so much of the media is spreading bad news, we're finding that the average person is desperate for something positive," said David Trotter, founder of Project Great News. "There's plenty of great news to be heard, but we believe it's to be found in the hard-working non-profits of our nation."
By developing a network of non-profit partners, Project Great News mines encouraging stories from non-profit leaders, produces a high-quality video to tell the story, and shares the content with it's growing base of followers via it's website, social media platforms, and email database. Featured stories focus on doing good in the world and include topics such as animals, the arts, community development, education, environment, health, and human rights.
"After being separated from his homeless father for over 10 years, one of our volunteer barbers recently reunited with him while providing free haircuts on our Mobile Makeover Unit, and it was amazing how Project Great News was able to tell the story in such a visual way," said Terence Lester, founder of Love Beyond Walls, based in Atlanta, Georgia.
With a unique focus on stories that come out of the work of non-profits, Project Great News follows in the footsteps of other media companies, including Upworthy and Humankind by USA Today, by focusing on heart-driven purposeful news.
"Similar websites have had great success, but we believe there's something special and unique about telling stories rooted in the passionate work of non-profits," stated Trotter. "These organizations are doing great work day in and day out, and we want people to be inspired to do great work in their own communities."
At the end of each video or article, Project Great News mentions the non-profit from which the story came and how to get in touch with the organization if the individual desires to learn more about its work.
