The underlying theme behind Issue 22 is ‘Solidarity’ to celebrate so much about being human; the communities we build, the pulling together of this last topsy turvy year and the wonderful projects and collaborations from the last few months.
About The Happy Newspaper
The newspaper is a 32-page publication organised chronologically, with news articles arranged month by month. Not only is the paper packed with only positive stories from across the globe, it also has an entire section dedicated to our Everyday Heroes. Not only that, we also feature articles based around a theme (previous issues include; empathy, loneliness, unity, opportunity) as well as gathering content on lifestyle, showbiz, travel, food and more.
As you may have noticed, this is not your typical newspaper. Its purpose is not to deliver sad or terrifying news to your doorstep, which you might read once and then throw away. Its sole purpose is to share and celebrate positive, uplifting stories that are often overlooked. For many people, understanding the idea behind the newspaper is one thing, but experiencing what a difference it makes to see and read solely positive articles is another.
The whole thing began as a very small idea in the whirlwind brain of Emily Coxhead, who began to realise the effect that the news was having on her when she was going through a difficult time herself. With a little extra help from a tiny but wonderful team The Happy News became a much bigger ‘thing’. The newspaper is still being directed, designed and illustrated by Emily in the world’s tiniest office in a little village in North West England… but has now been read by over 12,000 subscribers in 33 different countries each quarter!
