The Happy NewspaperQ&C Book Shop
The newspaper itself is a 32-page publication organised chronologically, with news articles arranged month by month. Not only is the paper packed with only positive stories from across the globe, it also has an entire section dedicated to our Everyday Heroes. These are people, groups or organisations who YOU have nominated to feature in the paper because they add a little bit of sunshine to the world (or your world). To find out more and to nominate, click here! Not only that, it also features articles based around a theme (previous issues include; empathy, loneliness, unity, opportunity) as well as gathering content on lifestyle, showbiz, travel, food and more.
As you may have noticed, this is not your typical newspaper. Its purpose is not to deliver sad or terrifying news to your doorstep, which you might read once and then throw away. Its sole purpose is to share and celebrate positive, uplifting stories that are often overlooked. For many people, understanding the idea behind the newspaper is one thing, but experiencing what a difference it makes to see and read solely positive articles is another.
The whole thing began as a very small idea in the whirlwind brain of Emily Coxhead, who began to realise the effect that the news was having on her when she was going through a difficult time herself. With a little extra help from a tiny but wonderful team The Happy News became a much bigger ‘thing’. The newspaper is still being directed, designed and illustrated by Emily in the world’s tiniest office in a little village in North West England… but has now been read by over 12,000 subscribers in 33 different countries each quarter!
The Happy News by Emily Coxhead also spans across colourful greeting cards, products and books all lovingly and individually designed by Emily, featuring her recognisable colourful illustrations and quirky handwriting.
