Cut Through Today’s Negative Noise

The Goodness Exchange (formerly Ever Widening Circles) is a media outlet helping people cut through today’s negative noise and save their time and sanity by providing instant access to good news, fresh ideas, and positive perspectives; without politics or obnoxious ads. A Vermont based company, we are celebrating the wave of goodness and progress, well underway around the world that almost no one knows enough about… yet. Goodness Exchange champions people who are solving the world’s problems, small and large.

Since we were founded in 2014, our aim has been to celebrate the progress happening around the world. We curate stories of inspiring technologies, good news, scientific breakthroughs, extraordinary features of the natural world, remarkable creativity, and newsworthy ideas from thought leaders around the globe—all without mention of politics.

The world needs a trusted place that is an oasis from the overwhelmingly negative news cycle, political acrimony, and relentless advertising.

Our aim is to touch a common chord in people from all cultures and generations; in short, to be the nicest place on the internet! To accomplish this, we simply follow three principles:

  • We will be a place for all, with no agenda: no politics, no religious affiliation, and no commercial biases.
  • We will cite our sources meticulously. We only use sources and include outbound links to long-trusted places of knowledge and goodwill on the web.
  • You will always leave the Goodness Exchange with a spring in your step. We write in a way that feels as though you have had coffee with a very nice, really smart friend.

A “balanced worldview” includes the knowledge of the many people working diligently and successfully to make the world a better place for us all.
