"You have to get a cherry pie from Traverse City. Holy buckets!" -Actor, Judy Greer
Become an Ambassador for Michigan


Michigan is a state full of stunning beauty, enormous creativity, and generous people. Social media makes it possible for those of us who know and love this state to share our story ourselves instead of always relying upon the images traditional media outlets tend to portray.

That is the heart of the Michigan Positivity Project, and we want you to take part. Share what you love about Detroit, Grand Rapids, Traverse City, Marquette, Lansing, Flint, Saginaw, Port Huron, and the many hamlets in between. Use and follow the hashtag #MIpositivity to become an active member of this movement to reshape perceptions of the Great Lakes State.

We invite you to take to social media and share images of local products you can't imagine life without, details about vacations in either peninsula that made your soul soar, and especially the everyday occurences that make Michigan such a lovely place to work, play, and call home.

Stories are best told by those who have lived them.
