The Happynings: Dubsmash Wars, Charity And Scientific Breakthroughs | Dubsmash

There is a universal law that we internet users have accepted as fact: A lot of the world sucks, hard, and you must be prepared to feel the weight of humanity on your shoulders to enjoy the web.

Be it misogyny, discrimination, genocide, racism, any myriad of “phobias,” natural disasters, sexual and/or child abuse, or war and all of its byproducts; you name it, the internet is teeming with it. One could quite easily turn into a bitter and cynical shell of their former, shiny self spending any amount of time online.

After lamenting over this bad-news-heavy world we live in with some of my lovely and not-at-all terrible staff, we decided it was time to start a good news revolution. Thus "The Happynings” (yes, we meant to spell it that way) was born.

The Happynings is a newsletter that will highlight ONLY happy news from weeks before. This is not an attempt to gloss over the bad news, as we will still report all of that as normal. This is simply meant to be a one-stop-shop of happy news to try and balance out the bad. Need a pick-me-up? We’ve undoubtedly got it. Need a good, happy cry? You’ve come to the right place! We will include a photo from the piece, the headline hyper-linked back and some other fun treats mixed in.

Prepare to feel the love.

The Silver Linings section is a place for optimists; where we try to appreciate incredibly moving and amazing things that never would have been without the tragedies that spawned them. That’s the thing about silver linings. For them to even exist, there must first be darkness. But from darkness comes light, and from light comes goodness. We would all do well to remember that.
