Meet Stephanie Abrams: The woman behind GiveBackNews

"There are so many stories are inspiring and have an impact locally, but unfortunately they're too often dismissed as not newsworthy or not sensational enough to keep the viewer/readers attention. I've always believed our communities deserved better than that, and that there would be an interest in these stories. This small social newscast is more than just applauding good news, as some stories are sad or disturbing, but each story featurs an opportunity to get involved. "Our tagline is 'making a difference one story at a time' because when just one more person hears the story or gets involved, that's what we're doing." -Stephanie Abrams
