Daily Positive (D+) is a not-for-profit media initiative of Arif Systems to accumulate, store and publish exclusively positive news from every country around the world. D+ collects news for 365 days of the year, from all countries, and spread notable, extraordinary and uplifting information from each culture.

D+ started its official journey on 25 November 2010. We invite volunteers, students, writers, researchers, professionals and people who are passionate about spreading positive news to discover and share the daily positives.

Dr. Arif Jubaer, the founder of D+, initially has supported the project with money saved from scholarships while he was a student completing his Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) at The University of Melbourne. He hopes that D+ will give back a sense of opportunity, friendship and positive cross cultural learning throughout the global community. He can be reached via email at: arif.jubaer@dailypositive.org.
