Bad News for Kevin Ham’s GoodNews.com

by Frank Michlick in Categories: Domain Development

According to an email signed by Kevin Ham, CEO of GoodNews.com – better known as the man behind Reinvent, the relatively young deal-a-day website with a local charity spin, will be shutting down operations in Vancouver effective April 4th, 2011. The site had not been launched for other cities yet. Any existing vouchers will remain valid until their expiry date and the company, which had raised nearly $50,000 in donations for various charities, will complete the donations to Kids Up Front.

See the email that GoodNews.com sent to its subscribers after the jump.
