About Chicken Soup for the Soul

Changing the World One Story at a Time®

Since 1993, Chicken Soup for the Soul has been a socially conscious company that combines storytelling with making the world a better place. We began by being as inclusive as possible in the pages of our books, publishing stories by people of all faiths, nationalities, ethnicities, sexual orientation and gender identities.

From the beginning, we have also shared our revenues with nonprofit organizations that do good in the world. Some of our recent recipients include American Humane, Toys for Tots, and Dress for Success.

We now provide entertainment, inspiration and wellness across many platforms in addition to our books, including TV, movies and video programming; podcasting; positive journalism; and pet food. We continue to tell the stories of all people through our efforts, always with an eye to furthering unity and understanding, and an appreciation for our differences.

The members of our team are diverse, representing many ethnicities, religions, nationalities, and the LGBTQ community. We continue to seek even more diversity in our team members and our storytelling as we further our mission of “changing the world one story at a time®.”

Our Products

  • Books: At Chicken Soup for the Soul we receive thousands of stories every year for our books. These stories are the foundation of everything we do. They have inspired our other products and established the values we run our company by. With these stories, our publisher and Editor-in-Chief Amy Newmark, and her team put out about a dozen new titles every year. Click here to see our over 250 books.
  • Pet food: We're also inspired by the thousands of stories we receive about the love between pets and people. These stories show that every moment matters between an owner and a pet. Our wholesome pet foods are meant to help you turn your own moments into stories. To learn more about our pet foods click here.
  • TV and movies: Stories can be told in a variety of ways and today we're branching out to what we call "visual storytelling." Our first regular TV show will air weekly beginning October 2015 and we've teamed up with Alcon Entertainment, the creators of The Blind Side, for the first Chicken Soup for the Soul feature film, which is coming in 2016.
  • Apps: Chicken Soup for the Soul stories have inspired us and we're sure they will inspire you, too. Our apps allow you to bring stories with you on the go and share them with friends and family.
