Owership and Funding info

Trend NewsOwnership and Funding Policy (Positivity Minds) has been owned and operated by online publisher AnimeGrind Inc in Ottawa, Canada since February 2022. Previous to that, the site was owned by founder Kasna Chewe. AnimeGrind (a subsidiary of the salman) investment group) oversees operation of Trend Newsacross all platforms across on which the brand appears: Google, Facebook, YouTube, and a host of other social media and news platforms. That said, AnimeGrind Inc. does not influence or otherwise dictate the opinions of the editorial teams nor interfere with site objectives, voice, or topic selection.

Programatic advertising platforms fund the majority of website operations, editorial salaries, and content payouts; still, the Trend Newseditorial staff, writers, and content team operate independent of AnimeGrind Ad-Ops team. The two do not interact nor influence each other’s work. Representation of all viewpoints, perspectives, and writers of all backgrounds are strongly encouraged by the senior editors – ensuring that objectivity and accuracy of our content is never restricted by any one writer, editor, partner, or business devision.

Note: While we strive to provide readers with a great ad experience, advertisements may not necessarily reflect the views of Positivity Minds.


On rare occasions, partnerships, direct sales campaigns, and sponsorships are negotiated by our ads team or content teams. Sponsored articles are clearly identified with a disclosure statement identifying the post accordingly. Similarly, select articles also include affiliate links for which AnimeGrind receives a commission on purchased items. Articles that include affiliate links also contain a statement disclosing an affiliate partnership. You can see an example of our affiliate disclosure in-text HERE.

The Trend Newseditorial team leverages relationships with studios, networks, and other partners for the purpose of exclusive interviews, review product, and other opportunities that help us create informed and accurate content. We are not paid for this content. To ensure that access does not influence editorial objectivity, we abide by a thorough ethics policy that all writers, editors, and contributors must follow. Read our complete ethics policy for full details.
