"TONIC" GOOD NEWS AND GOOD DEEDS

Consider getting an article about your organization and its volunteers on an international Web site devoted to doing good.  Tonic is a Web site that emphasizes good.  There is a special section on volunteerism. 

Tonic is a media company focused on the good that happens each day in neighborhoods all around the world. The world is defined by a philosophy that people want to matter and make a difference instead of being defined by age, race, income, gender or geography.

Tonic supports itself by selling products with a social benefit, either through how it’s made or some portion of the sale price being donated to charity. Tonic is committed to transparency publishing how much is donated to various causes and posting the cashed checks as proof.

Tonic gladly accepts content submissions about all things good. The editors review articles and work with contributors to evaluate submissions for publication. Tonic also welcomes photos and videos.


You can send them a message at news@tonic.com.
