Businesses making a positive difference invited to sponsor local good news reporters, starting in Auckland
Reporters are poised to bike, walk and bus to get the good news scoop in Auckland, Hawkes Bay and the rest of New Zealand, with a little help from businesses making a positive difference.
The national good news website Happyzine is launching a local good news project where reporters are stationed in Kiwi suburbs around the country. Happyzine founder Charlotte Squire reporters must source their stories in a “climate friendly manner.”
“They can report on their close community, areas they can only reach by bike, foot, bus or maybe car pooling” she said. “They can also use phone or internet.” She said the stories will “have local roots, with the power to inspire nationally.”
Reporters from Mt Eden, West Auckland, South Auckland, Devonport and Epson have been the first to put their hands up and are waiting on sponsorship. The Happyzine team are seeking to work with businesses who are “giving back to the planet and our people in a positive way,” said Charlotte.
“We will share their inspiring stories beneath each of our stories. We will also pass on their best stories to mainstream media,” she said.
The news will be shared nationwide via Happyzine, with a little help from major tourism facebook sites, city councils, community boards, community noticeboards, and not for profits, bringing Happyzine’s potential nationwide reach to well over 200,000 people.
