Comments Off on GOOD Acquires Jumo and Makes Better News

GOOD has acquired  Jumo , a social network that helps people find high-quality non-profits and take meaningful action. Ben Goldhirsh, founder of GOOD, addressed members and wrote, “This is a big step combining forces to complement media with community, and content with action. This is the beginning of a big effort, and we’re confident with their human capital, our human capital, and a shared objective of connecting likeminds to drive progress that much good stuff is to come”. Jumo is a social network with impact that enables people to find organizations and similarly minded people working on important causes here in the United States and across the world. Nearly 15,000 organizations from across the globe have signed up for Jumo to share their work and the stories of the people they serve. GOOD’s acquisition of Jumo is another step forward that emphasizes their portfolio is not restricted to just good content (if you will excuse the pun) geared towards today’s challenges but includes a variety of different projects and initiatives. Other recent initiatives inlcude- GOOD Finder –  This experiment from GOOD provides a way for anyone in the GOOD community to share news, ideas, or happenings, and to start discussions. Find good stuff across the web and quickly post it here — anything that is inspirational, thought-provoking, mind-blowing, or otherwise “good to share” with the rest of the GOOD community. The most popular submissions and conversations may even inspire new stories on the main site and in the magazine. GOOD Maker -  a new web platform that will allow the GOOD community to take action and bring good ideas to life. The platform aims to provide users’ ideas or projects with opportunities for funding via sponsored challenges as well as through peer-to-peer contributions, and then serve as the hub for each project’s life-cycle, from idea to launch to reporting and feedback. GOOD CORPS - GOOD/CORPS helps brands and organizations align business strategy with social impact, and win through highly participatory and profitable relationships with their audiences. GOOD CORPS uncovers the original positive purpose that gave birth to the brand, re-contextualizes this purpose within the needs of the world today, and then celebrates it in a brand platform that invigorates the audience through action and communication. Sound great!? Sure does. With such a variety of social good platforms and projects- what will call GOOD? A special interest group for reasonable people? A content and engagement platform? A company trying to respond to the needs of its members? Ben Goldhirsh says we can call it whatever we want-it’s ever evolving! Just stay on for the ride!
