Putting values at the top of your list.
IF YOU'RE READING this, you likely live in a home into which you wel- come, or are welcomed by, family and friends. Furthermore, it’s prob- ably in one of the most beautiful,
protected and privileged areas of our great

Because your time and attention are so
valuable, you reading this letter is a blessing
for me, Marin Magazine and the rest of Make
It Better Media Group. We hope that you feel
at home with us too.
There is much to love about life in Marin
County, but our values are at the top of my
list. We’re grateful to live in community with
each other, nestled in magnificent nature.
We think long-term and about others. Our
lifestyle choices are more likely to preserve
our planet for the future than fill our homes
with thoughtless abundance in the present.
We don’t just espouse social justice for under-
served others, we inherently choose to foster
opportunities to help them.
To publish helpful content for those who love
Marin is a blessing too. This print issue represents only a small fraction of our outstanding
home-related content. If you enjoy this, you will
love our treasure trove of additional articles
and resource guides online that can help you
improve your home, live more sustainably, support local resources and help others.
For example, among our online content
you will find a comprehensive directory of
renovation experts, home-related stories,
and unparalleled dining, entertainment and
local human-interest coverage. Furthermore,
if articles in this issue about foster care
needs and organized efforts to rebuild homes
destroyed by the numerous local wildfires
pique your interest, online you will find easy
ways to get involved and other information on
how to help out.
Perhaps best of all, absolutely everything
we publish and do online can help to amplify
your social impact. With one click, share or
comment, you join a net work of others who
also love Marin, want to support the best in
this community and foster a better future for
