Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

Q: What is Good Good Good?

Good Good Good is an uprising of hopefuls marching against the hate, fear, and injustice in the world by celebrating and becoming accomplices in good work. The stories and tools we provide are designed leave you feeling less overwhelmed, and more capable of being a part of the good in the world.

Good Good Good was founded by Branden Harvey and creates the Goodnewspaper, Goodnewsletter, and Sounds Good.

Q: How do you decide what good news to share?

There’s a lot of news out there that many would be defined as ‘good news’, but we have a policy here at Good Good Good that helps us decipher what we share. We call it ‘feel good’ vs. ‘real good’.

‘Feel good’ news is the story that maybe makes you feel warm inside, but doesn’t really dig beneath the surface. It’s often made up of cute animal videos, inventive restaurant openings, or human interest stories that are sensationalized.

‘Real good’ news is the story that feels like a blend of grit, advocacy, and messy hope. It’s made up of things like random acts of kindness, creative attempts to bring awareness, advocacy for social justice, small businesses that better their communities, positive global trends, planet care, and articles meant to inspire and convict, not pacify.

We focus on the real good. Always.

Q: How often does the Goodnewspaper come out?

The Goodnewspaper is a quarterly publication. A new issue releases every 3 months. Our podcast and Goodnewsletter come out every week on Mondays and Tuesdays respectively.

Q: I’ve got a great good news story to share. Where do I send my good news?

  1.  Submit content for consideration for social media, Goodnewsletter, and Goodnewspaper at hello@goodgoodgood.co.
  2. Share in our private Facebook Goodnewspaper group. We love this because oftentimes, we can’t always broadcast every story that’s sent to us. This group is a fun way for everyone to see the good you’re seeing in the world!

Q: WhY Are some shipping prices higher than i would expect?

We totally hear you on international shipping being high. Let me tell you, our team is just as disappointed as you are at how much it costs to ship each individual issue internationally. We were so surprised that we actually lost money on a few hundred international orders because we'd accidentally set our shipping price too low. We completely understand this not being an option for many people.

With all that said, we're actively looking for ways to bring down the cost of international shipping. In the meantime, one option would be to wait until the end of Year 1 — then order all 4 issues at once. This will effectively cut the cost of international shipping down by 4.

Q: Is the goodnewspaper available in digital form?

While creating a digital version of the Goodnewspaper is really tempting, we really believe there's magic in being able to physically hold good news and tangibly give good news to a friend. We don't have any plans to offer digital versions of the Goodnewspaper at this time. We do, though, see our weekly Goodnewsletter and podcast as our digital equivalents and hope you enjoy them.
