GOOD Magazine

I first stumbled upon GOOD Magazine at the Empty Bottle last August. The magazine was included in a goody bag (also filled with Redkin hair products - anyone need 4 different bottles of hair stuff?) being given away at the Simian Mobile Disco show. After a week of having it around the house I decided I loved it and bought a subscription for me and two more for friends.

It's billed as "The magazine for people who give a damn".

We see a growing number of people tied together not by age, career, background, or circumstance, but by a shared interest. This revolves around a passion for potential mixed with fierce pragmatism and creative engagement. We sum all this up as the sensibility of giving a damn. But to shorten it, let's call it GOOD. We're here to push this movement and cover its realization.

For $20 you get a year's subscription (6 issues) and 100% of your payment is contributed to the non-profit of your choice. Each year 12 non-profits are chosen and the website tells you all about each one so you can decide where your money goes. I guess GOOD makes their money from ads and in store sales. Anyway, if you like
giving, other cultures, good design, the environment, new ideas, and a great coffee table addition, you should be a subscriber. Also, I've seen them for sale at Whole Foods.
