Reach And Teach says:
Over the years the team at Reach And Teach has heard one thing over and over again. People want to hear good stories about the world. They want to know that there are good people doing good things out there and that doing something, small or big, can make a real difference. That's one of the reasons we were so pleased to meet Pam Marino and learn about her blog, Good Neighbor Stories. As with many of the people we meet in our work, we always wonder if there might be some way we could combine our energies and do something together that we couldn't do separately. The idea for this datebook came to us during lunch together one day and now, a few months later, they're here in time for the holidays.
About the Datebook:
With beautiful photographs and stories of people and organizations doing great work, this datebook makes a wonderful way to celebrate the good in the world every day, while using the large and spacious weekly calendar pages to keep track of appointments and special occasions. Holidays from various faith traditions and national days are included, plus every week has an inspirational quote.

The photos are all taken by Pam Marino (beautiful photos, we'd like to add) and the datebook was designed by our friends at Design Action Collective in Oakland. When you're planning to change the world and need a team to help you design everything from your posters to your web site to your annual report, these are the go to people. The calendar is printed on recycled materials, with soy ink, by our other friends at Inkworks Press in Berkeley. If you're going to change the world and need something printed to make it happen, these have been the go to people for decades. Employee-owned union labor and really nice to hang out with!

About Good Neighbor Stories:
The Good Neighbor Stories website was launched in June 2010, by San Francisco Bay Area journalist and long-time community volunteer Pam Marino. The website’s mission is to encourage each of us to “be a good neighbor/share good stories.” Pam defines “neighbor” in the global sense: the choices we make in how we live and interact with the world impacts anyone either near to us, or half way around the globe.
Good Neighbor Stories shares inspirational stories of people and organizations that are impacting their communities and the rest of the world in a positive way. The site regularly features stories about young people giving of their time to those less fortunate, nonprofits striving to improve the lives of others in the community, or passionate adult volunteers who share their skills with those in need.
The goal is that readers will be inspired to take action in their own lives to create a better home, neighborhood, community, and world. Good Neighbor Stories also gives readers a chance to share their own stories about the helpful things they are doing, or about how someone else showed kindness toward them.
Pam invites you to visit and participate in the Good Neighbor Stories online “neighborhood”. In addition to the web site, you can visit the Facebook Page, and follow us on Twitter (http://twitter.com/#1/gnstories).
