GOOD Worldwide, LLC. (trademarked GOOD in caps) is a media platform that promotes, connects, and reports on individuals, businesses, and non-profits "pushing the world forward." GOOD produces a website (GOOD.is), a quarterly magazine, online videos, and events highlighting examples of what is sustainable, prosperous, productive, creative, equitable. The content covers a variety of topics, including the environment, education, urban planning, design, food, politics, culture, lifestyle, technology, and health. GOOD Worldwide, LLC. is the consolidation of originally separate brands, Reason Pictures, GOOD Magazine, and GOOD Digital, in partnership with Causes, a Facebook/MySpace app promoting donations of time and money to charities and non-profits; Goodrec, a personal inspiration and service; and Govit, an application that connects US citizens with their elected representatives.  The online platform is made up of four components: magazine, news, finder, and maker.
In June 2012 most of its editors were fired. The firings were "for strategic reasons" to shift GOOD's focus to its social networks (GOOD Finder, GOOD Maker, GOOD Local). Eight former GOOD Magazine editors and writers raised funds on Kickstarter to create the one-shot magazine Tomorrow before going their separate ways.

GOOD's website, partly a network of blogs, host stories of good in a variety of categories and includes the option to get the Daily Good, an email newsletter that highlights one good thing every day. In 2009, the site was reporting over 2 million unique hits per month. 
The GOOD Finder is a platform for people to contribute, search, and discuss news, events, and ideas by submitting a URL and a short description.
The GOOD Maker is another platform where an organization poses a challenge to the community, ideas to meet the challenge are posted and voted on, and the winning idea is awarded a grant or other support to enable the project's completion.
Founding and business model
GOOD was founded in 2006 by Ben Goldhirsh, son and heir of entrepreneur and Inc. Magazine creator Bernie Goldhirsh. Ben Goldhirsh, then 26, wanted to create a "free press for the critical idealist." Eschewing experienced editors, he hired friends from college and high school, including Al Gore's son, Al Gore III to create a media company characterized by "both bold graphic style and an unconventional approach to business." The team was initially criticized by some industry experts, such as magazine executive and publishing expert Chip Block, who said, "This sounds a lot to me like vanity publishing, a bunch of kids sitting around with something they think is a really good idea, and one of them has a lot of money." Others in the industry praised the magazine's design and concept upon its launch.
GOOD's unconventional business strategy included donating its magazine subscription fees entirely to charities, offering subscribers the option of which organization their fee supported: Teach for America, Millennium Promise, Ashoka, City Year, UNICEF, etc. Goldhirsh explained the reasoning behind the strategy in an interview with Inc. Magazine: "The idea was that we would incentivize consumers with the added benefit that their money goes to charity, incentivize these charities to reach their constituencies for the $20 donation, and enjoy the added marketing and public relations that would come from having an innovative strategy." Goldhirsh's theory has been criticized for not being a viable business model. However, the Magazine has reached over 200,000 people and raised over a million dollars for partner organizations.  
Around launch time in the fall of 2006, GOOD was featured in the New York Times and mentioned by APM's Marketplace. The magazine and its web presence were covered by NPR throughout late 2007, when the company celebrated its one year anniversary. GOOD's listing of the 51 best magazines also received national press attention.
On August 17, 2011, a joint announcement was made that social network service Jumo, a social engagement platform designed to connect users with causes and non-profits, founded by Facebook cofounder Chris Hughes, would be merging with GOOD.
Good magazine has office locations in Los Angeles and New York.
