positive-news-ownthemedia-1

In a matter of two days, London-based Positive News has raised more than £65,000 by asking people to own a piece of a global media cooperative.

Money raised will help remake the publication’s print and online operations. People who fund the campaign receive shares and a say in stories Positive News UK reports.

Danielle Batist aka the Journopreneur (see “How I successfully crowdfund journalism”) is also involved in the project.

Positive News’ campaign is the first of the Community Shares Project, a partnership between The Community Shares Company and crowdfunder.co.uk to allow more people to invest in projects in their community, an initiative that was announced Monday.
