Shine On Hollywood Magazine exceeds 17 million global clicks, and asks for pay-it-forward contributions for its formerly free digital publication, to succeed in spreading positive messages from Hollywood to the globe.
August 12, 2014-Hollywood, CA- Shine On Hollywood Magazine (SOHM) shares stories of triumph and success in the entertainment industry, and after releasing two years of free digital issues, the founder and publisher Arnold Garcia is asking for contributions. When asked why, Garcia has several reasons. On it’s two-year anniversary, SOHM has grown globally. Europe, Asia and Latin America have according to views, become addicted to SOHM. There are over 130,000 likes on Facebook, and when Hollywood magazine is searched for on the Internet, SOHM is in the top three hits. To further this momentum funds are now vital to the company.
There are also future plans. There will be an interactive webcast with celebrities, the discovery of global talent, translation into different languages, and interviews with high-end celebrities. All plans need funding. Money is needed to give hope to the undiscovered, to allow celebrities to share their experience to the audience, and to tell the public that Hollywood is not about negativity, he says. Sharing to Garcia means giving and receiving talent between each party. He says that it is what the real Hollywood should be about.
To Garcia, sharing also means putting out endless hours to create a spark not often seen in Hollywood magazines, the human touch, the passion that commonality exists, and that any individual can thrive and succeed in life. Garcia wants to always show how talent can give back to the community through experience, teaching, and sharing stories of achievement. He passionately believes that for the public to share by contribution is to also feel that human touch.Quick Facts
