This is a full-time role based in Dallas, TX
There’s too much negative and divisive media in the world today. InspireMore exists to push back against that negativity by becoming the world’s leading positive media brand.
Since launching InspireMore in 2014, our stories have been viewed and shared by over 500 million people worldwide. While reaching millions of people is exciting, the end goal that keeps us passionately motivated is impact.
Here’s a testimonial from a community member that summarizes the first part of this impact:
the #1 good news email read by 700K+ people.
“I just stumbled across your site – right when I really needed it! I have clinical depression caused by complex trauma and lately, it’s got so bad I didn’t want to deal with it anymore. Then today I came across your site and it has given me the strength to carry on. I just want to say thank you. Without sounding dramatic, I think this site has probably saved my life. Thank you again.” – Debbie
This is just one of the many responses we receive each and every day. Positive stories spread hope and can truly change lives and culture. Additionally, we give a portion of our time and our advertising revenue to raise awareness and funds for inspiring causes world-wide. Since 2014, we’ve been able to donate over $100,000 to our amazing featured causes!
We deeply believe in our mission and we are looking for like-minded people to join our team to help us further it. Our goals are ambitious and the cause is worthy!
