Changing Your Life 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®.”
