Positive Journal project 2016-2017
Significant positive things occur every day in society, you just have to stop and look around. The Positive Journal is a virtual home for the good things done by us all.
The Positive Journal will try to let people know about the girl next door who saved a little dog, or the elderly man who tidies up neglected graves, or perhaps that person – the soul of his or her town – who brings the whole community together by organizing celebrations.
No positive example or good news should go unnoticed. We invite everyone to become good news ambassadors – take notice of, and share with others, deeds that warm the heart! More about the project
