I LOVE THIS MAGAZINE
It is true, I love YES! Magazine.
I discovered it at issue #20 and just finished reading issue #51 from cover to cover.
My favorite issue which when I read it hooked me in, was the one on all the positive things happening around the world in Education. Issue #51 is all about all the positive things happening in Education and how to keep learning all throughout your lifetime.
YES! Magazine is about the Positive Futures Network. It is on recycled paper. It is published quarterly. They have a website and twitter – and more ways to connect.
It does not have advertisements. It is a non-profit and needs donations to keep going- that makes it tax deductible. One can truly connect and have a conversation with the Editors, Interns and Writers.
I started counting all the internet connections in issue #51. I was half way through the magazine and stopped because I had reached 51 web addresses to explore and I knew there were at least 6 references in a later article. I knew I would be exploring for the rest of the week what had intrigued my attention.
The number one gift I give to folks is YES! Magazine. I have given the school libraries subscriptions, my husband’s firm and our doctor’s office this magazine.
I have discovered these individuals from this blog and their bodies of work:
Frances Moore Lappe’s– Hunger and Food issues and saving the planet.
Bill McKibben and the Ecology – Voluntary Simplicity Movement. (Have been a member of a study group for 28 years)
Grace Lee Boggs – learned about community organizing and asking questions.
John Taylor Gatto – about dumbing kids down and how education really works.
Australia’s Youth Climate Change Groups
About the ongoing treatment of women around the world and how so many women are so active in creating change in their communities.
Dr. Marshal Rosenberg and studied Nonviolent – Compassionate Communications.
Amy Goodman – media and broadcast journalism
World Leaders that many people never hear about – the regular people who bring about change.
Communities which are healing themselves – such as Indigenous people eating correctly what their bodies need.
Bill Moyers Journal – How the Constitution works and how our democracy works.
The New Road Map Foundation – Your Money or your Life
David Korten – have read all of his books including Agenda for a New Economy and heard him speak.
I am sure I have read over 100 books which have been referred by this magazine.
I collect little factoids so I absolutely swoon over The Page That Counts!
I love the downloadable posters – this issue it is the “12 Things Really Educated People Know”
I am curious so I believe I read at least 30 of the websites referenced in articles and discussions.
I enjoy the letters to the editor; they truly share how folks have put this information into useful action.
And at the top of my list: The magazine is Global Sharing – I hear about what people are doing around the world from a local perspective, concept, and action.
I am not making enough money to purchase my own subscription right now or give it as a gift, and I am privileged that my friend LIV renews for me. Thank you so much.
I am a curious person and a reader and YES! Magazine keeps me connected and truly informed.
I just wanted you to know.
I am hoping you will subscribe and maybe make a donation to keep this YES! Magazine informing us, I want to share the positive vibes and keep on learning.
Education is the Key. Learning is putting that knowledge combined with your values into action.
