Funny you have added this here as I am now writing for a company that is looking to promote happier news and inspirational stories. It's called Punnky and stands for Positive and Uplifting News Network. They have a site, Facebook page where people get to share stories and they've even began events such as a 'high-5-a-thon'
Mr positivity here gets paid to write happy stuff for a change
(Hope this doesn't look like a cheap plug)
