FOUNDER & EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
On January 1st, 2014, I officially launched my own publication: PERREAULT Magazine, a global and digital publication promoting global causes, education, advocacy and activism. My goal has always been to create social and environmental changes, due to urgencies related to humanitarian causes, the environment, wildlife protection, and so much more. The next generations need our help. I have personally been involved in humanitarian causes for the last 14 years, helping refugees to resettle, and working with survivors of state-sponsored torture. By meeting these extraordinary, resilient, and beautiful people, it has inspired me to build a business with a purpose. I created and launched my publication wanting to
- educate other people about important causes
- inspire them to become involved
- bring global causes together on one platform
- provide the ‘call-to-action’ tools
In 2014, the discovery of the ‘digital’ format for a magazine fascinated me. It offers the tools to get involved directly from the pages of the magazine, as well as the opportunity for the publication to rapidly become global. The digital format offers readers the tools to “donate”, “sign a petition”, “engage in a campaign”, “buy” an product (eco, upcycled, recycled, community-based), or “watch” a trailer for a cause-conscious documentary, all directly from the pages of the magazine. The results are instant. Our audience can offer public and/or financial support for the showcased causes and by sharing the magazine’s link via social media, email, phones, tablets, etc., it creates visibility for those important causes and organizations.
Our mission is to provide our readers with the necessary knowledge and tools to actively engage and to realize the importance of their support, their signature, and their voice.
Our goal is to INFORM, INSPIRE and EMPOWER global citizens, especially our YOUTH, to engage with the WORLD, to support causes, to advocate and to ACT.
We cover humanitarian causes, environmental causes - with a special focus on our oceans - and cover wildlife protection. We also cover Global Health and Women Leadership. PERREAULT Magazine aims to serve as an agent for social change and awareness. Our vision is to help change mindsets and redirect the consciousness of our readers towards realizing the importance of their knowledge, support, signatures, and voices.
