We believe that stories about important issues can and should be great stories — stories for everyone, stories that connect us and sometimes even change the world.
Because we’re all part of the same story.
The internet often narrows our world instead of broadening it. And fills it with a waterfall of empty stories that drown out the ones that matter most.
But sometimes a story opens a door to a new and better world. It might make you feel surprised, happy, inspired, motivated, even sad. But it's those stories that give us what we're missing. They connect us with each other. They are rocket fuel for empathy. They change our hearts, our minds and sometimes even, the world.
Upworthy tells those stories, and helps them break through. Stories that are worth your time - and that make the world a better place.
