About

Unsung People shares stories of people making our communities better.

For every positive story online, there are 17 negative ones, so people perceive the world as more dangerous than it actually is. Researchers have coined this term the "Mean World Syndrome."

We want to contribute to a world in which we notice kindness around us and are kind to others. Our goal is to shed light on the kindness around us, and share inspiring stories.

Our journalists write in-depth CloseUP stories spotlighting selfless, inspiring community members. We also share simple stories of kindness from online submissions. We have been featured by the University of Virginia, NBC29, Cavalier Daily, and TEDx.
