How We Started

One Saturday morning, I woke up and wanted to do something new. I didn’t have any plans so I went online and I googled things to do. Nothing new came up besides the local attractions. Then I realized that there was not a central location to find local events, like garage sales, food trucks, music festivals, and even real estate open houses. After that day, MapGoodNews was born. The purpose is to provide a method for people to post local events, opportunities, and see all the events happening in their area now. I want to wake up, open MapGoodNews and discover something new. I want to go where the locals go, and discover fun family friendly events.
