“We’re just trying to celebrate the sensibility of moving things forwards,” Ben Goldhirsh says of his brand, GOOD. According to the site, “GOOD is a collaboration of individuals, businesses, and nonprofits pushing the world forward. Since 2006 we’ve been making a magazine, videos, and events for people who give a damn.” Influenced by Radiohead’s innovative sales move for their In Rainbows album, GOOD allows readers to name their price and donates all subscription fees to charities, specifically chosen by subscribers.
