Get Your GOOD In
Come on and get your GOOD. GOOD Magazine, that is. The buzz is has been strong on this newly-launched magazine, the creation of Ben Goldhirsh. You maybe have read the inspiring piece on him in last month's LA Times - or you might have read the interview LAist had with him prior to that (thanks Adrienne!) He is also the founder of Reason Pictures, so yes a very busy guy.
This Saturday is their launch party. How do you get to go? Simple: buy a subscription to the magazine. A year of bi-monthly issues costs $20 and the entire proceeds go to one of 12 preselected nonprofits including such notables as City Year, Teach for America and Generation Engage. Plus, being in oh-so-cool LA, you know Saturday night's party will be a who's-who of people engaged to make a difference. So show up, have some free drinks, and be inspired to be a part of this exciting new adventure into engaged philanthropy!
