San Rafael, California (PRWEB) January 26, 2012
Kontribune today announced that The Peace Alliance, an international non-profit organization dedicated to peace-building in all aspects of society, has chosen the Kontribune Engage™ community publishing platform to create and publish their online member-stories project, The Faces of Peace.
“We chose Kontribune Engage after looking at other newsletter publishing solutions on the market,” said Judy Kimmel, Chairman of the Board of the Peace Alliance. “However, none of them measured up to Kontribune for our requirements. We found that Kontribune’s combination of social media, community building, and citizen journalism allows us to engage with our members at a whole new level.”
“We are thrilled to have vibrant communities such as Faces of Peace discover that they can engage with their members in ways not previously possible,” said Paul Remer, co-founder of Kontribune. “It has been particularly gratifying to see users from all over the world publish their photos and stories about what they are doing to promote peace. And Kontribune Engage is just the beginning: we are creating a whole line of products designed to help communities thrive.”
