ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwired - February 19, 2016) - People Purpose Impact, a major new international digital magazine, launches internationally today. The publication, featuring powerful storytelling and impactful imagery, was born out of a desire to tell stories about people and share ideas that spark conversations and inspire not only thought but also action. Melissa Mahler, the publication's Founder, CEO, and Executive Editor made the announcement.
Ms. Mahler stated, "In covering athletes over the past few years I saw the truth in Nelson Mandela's words. 'Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does.' While People Purpose Impact goes beyond sports, it's that same premise that we've embraced."
Former New York Giant and two-time Super Bowl winner Carl Banks helped unveil the inaugural cover in San Francisco prior to the NFL championship game. Video is available here: https://vimeo.com/155450761

Stephanie Matthews, the publication's Creative Director, designed the intelligent, engaging and stylish presentation unique to each story. "People will embrace our shareable content and we will continue to raise the bar in design and interactive storytelling," noted Ms. Mathews.
"Inside each issue you'll discover provoking and entertaining interviews with celebrities, athletes, CEOs and innovators woven together with breathtaking photographs and some of our favorite quotes," continued Ms. Mahler.
