For two years, we have posted thousands of articles available exclusively online and from our flagship print publication, YES! Magazine, telling the extraordinary stories of the people, movements, and communities that are making the world a better place—despite (and often in response to) the challenges of our time.
Our online team has selected the 20 top articles to share with you for this year-end newsletter. We chose articles based on popularity and how they address important issues and cover the major events of the year 2011. I encourage you to scroll through this compilation as you reflect upon the year.
We are an independent, ad-free nonprofit working to penetrate the noise of “bad-news” journalism with real solutions and hope. We rely on the support of you, our loyal readers. If you have the means, please consider making a year-end donation, large or small, to support our stories of possibility. Thank you to all of you who have supported us financially this year!
On a personal note, it has been an honor and pleasure to produce these e-mail newsletters for you over the past six months. Now that I have settled into work at YES! Magazine, I am eager to find ways to improve our communications with you. If you have specific suggestions or feedback, feel free to send me a note at dhoshiko AT yesmagazine DOT org.
Wishing you and your community a Happy New Year.
Newsletter Editor, YES! Magazine
