When VIE was founded in 2008, our mission was to celebrate people doing great things to make the world a more beautiful place. That hasn’t changed, and we’re excited to share our Goodness Issue with you as we take a look at some fantastic people, groups, and organizations doing good. Also included are heartwarming stories, a beautiful family home makeover in New Orleans, Thanksgiving recipes, fall travel ideas, and ideas for how to spend quality time with family and friends this season. We’re so grateful to all who are dedicated to doing what they can for others—and to our readers for supporting us over all these years. Life is good!
