For the launch of “Big Ideas” the Larry King Cardiac Foundation created a magazine on healthy living; Direct Relief curated a magazine on humanitarian innovation; Free the Children focuses its magazine on clean water stories from across the globe; Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is raising awareness of the work the organization is doing in Syria, and UNICEF curated a magazine focused on child labor around the world.Readers can easily find the topics they care about in the Content Guide by tapping on the red ribbon inside Flipboard; then select the new category called “Big Ideas.” The nonprofit organizations will have links to their magazines on their websites, making it easy to start reading these custom Flipboard magazines from any desktop, a new capability the company launched today.
“As people increasingly access news from their smartphones and tablets we want to give these great causes a mobile presence,” said Mia Quagliarello, Flipboard’s head of curation, who spoke with Larry King and his wife Shawn King in an exclusive interview."Our mission is to save hearts. Flipboard is a fantastic and fun platform to share stories about how to lead a heart healthy life. Whether it's highlighting a recipe or celebrating a community activist, we hope the magazines shine a light on how to be a heart star," said Larry King, founder of Larry King Cardiac Foundation.
