Hurrah! The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand officially endorses the Happyzine Local Good News project!
I’m Charlotte Squire, Editor of the Kiwi positive news website ‘Happyzine’ and I’m pleased to announce that the New Zealand Mental Health Foundation officially endorses our awesome Local Good News initiative.
The Happyzine Local Good News initiative is designed to share the ongoing (and infinite) supply of positive news emerging from Kiwi communities, with the rest of the world. In doing so it’s intended to inspire heart-warming social and environmental change via the stories of what’s possible, within a community of people who are quite simply trying to make the world a greener, happier place.
We have Local Good News columns coming out each Friday from Christchurch and Golden Bay. We’re working on setting up weekly good news columns to come from writers based in Wellington, Auckland, and Nelson with more to follow from other communities.
Happyzine and the Mental Health Foundation are in agreance about the positive social value of the Local Good News initiative.
