Coming in 2018.

Ten years ago, we set forth to launch our publication: Giving Back Magazine. It was new territory as no one had ever published a bi-national magazine in two languages! We were wonderfully surprised to be welcomed by the community on both sides of the border. Over the years, we have shared stories of the people that are making our region better, and how together we are making a difference.

As we start a new year and kick off a new decade, we reflect on where we began and where are going. Since day one, our focus has been to share the stories of positivity to our ever-changing binational region. Staying true to our commitment, we have been proud to be a vehicle for charitable organizations and businesses to showcase the positive changes they are making for our community. We have also highlighted philanthropic individuals who are making the cities we call home a better place.

Together with our team, we are excited and grateful to share that thanks to YOU, our readers and partners, we are growing! Five years ago, we launched our second magazine, a pet’s life magazine. San Diego is one of the pet friendliest cities in America and we saw a need to share not only this but the pets behind the people who make the city of San Diego. We have also partnered with Community Associations Institute to publish Community Insider, the region’s source for professional property management and homeowners associations. Our custom publishing division has really taken off with two other publications launching in 2018- so much to do!

Growing up in Tijuana and San Diego, we have always strived to showcase the beauty of our vibrant region and creating collaborations. From events Giving Back Magazine produces where 100% of the proceeds go to a charitable organization, to proudly being the Hispanic Ambassadors for the San Diego Humane Society, our love for our binational region, its people, and its pets is always what motivates us.

But what we are most proud of and thankful for, is YOU: our readers, our partners, and our friends who have always supported us, given us guidance, and opened your doors to us. Thank you.

Wishing you love, good health and laughter in 2018!
