Good News Shared
Good News Shared was started in April 2014 by Nisha Kotecha. By working and volunteering with small charities over the years Nisha has seen first-hand the impact that a small organisation can have on people’s lives and their communities.
After discussions with people and groups all over the UK Nisha found many other people who share the view that smaller organisations deserve more interest and support, and so Good News Shared was born to shout about small organisations and charities that are punching above their weight and delivering real impact in peoples lives!
I actually met with Nisha last year and shared my Idea for Wapikka. She was super supportive and actually was the first publication to do a small write up about our mission and work with our charity partner Mary's Meals.
They aslo have a weekly podcast where Nisha interviews founders of small charities or inspiring people who are up to some big things.

The blog is a quickly becoming growing a collective of conscious consumers from around the world who are tired of supporting companies that do not align with their values and eager to support companies that demonstrate social responsibility towards people and the planet.
