When Sarah van Gelder got together with a few friends in 1996 to start a magazine about hopeful news and positive actions, it was, to say the least, a total leap of faith. It was one of these beautiful endeavors that begin in one’s garage when no one really knows how it’s all going to pan out into the big world. Sarah simply didn’t see anything better to do with her creative skills. Twenty years later and with a run of 50,000 copies per issue, YES! Magazine has established itself as an indispensable and hope-infusing read for a growing segment of the progressive-minded population of this country, people who simply refuse to cave under the barrage of depressive and disempowering negativity propagated by most of the commercial media.
