PRESS RELEASE

ChildGood Magazine Reflects Experiences of its Founder Maria Del Rey: 

A Latin Grammy-Nominated, Professionally Independent, Female Entrepreneur

There’s a lavish new magazine making waves on Apple Newsstand and raising eyebrows in digital publishing circles. Those who have worked with Maria Del Rey, ChildGood Magazine’s Publisher and Editor, aren’t the least bit surprised at her latest successful turn.

After all, Del Rey has been a trailblazer in the family media industry for more than twenty-five years. Prior to conceiving and bringing to life the widely acclaimed ChildGood Magazine, The Journal for Creative Families, her work had been groundbreaking on many fronts, winning awards and critical recognition from the music and entertainment industries, educational organizations, and parenting groups.

Among her many honors are a Latin Grammy Award nomination, several Parents’ Choice Gold and Silver Honor Awards, and the Carnegie Centennial Grant Award. In addition, Del Rey was selected as a delegate-performer at the United Nations Global Peace Initiative for Women Leaders in Geneva, Switzerland, representing the children of the Americas, and was recognized for her leadership and artistic contributions by being named a Top Role Model in the state of Pennsylvania by The Pennsylvania Commission for Women. Ms. Del Rey is also a widely recognized and sought-after speaker, having lectured around the country. Over the course of her career, she has sold more than 2 million units of family media in 6 different languages.

Ms. Del Rey’s inspiration for creating ChildGood Magazine (which after only five test issues is already Apple Newsstand’s leading parenting and family magazine) has been her own experience working with countless other “creative independents,” – successful artists, artisans, musicians, software developers, architects, filmmakers and others – raising families and committed to the same unique lifestyle.

“I was really surprised that there wasn’t any media speaking to or serving me and my contemporaries,” says Del Rey. “From that observation grew ChildGood Magazine – it really is a journal for successful, creative, professionally independent, families.”
