About

Are you…..
-Tired of waking up to your daily news forecast of Highs in Foreclosures, Lows in employment, and a 100% chance of auto restructuring?
-Sick of those hiding behind soft lenses and good lighting casting a dark shadow over Detroit, one clever sound byte after another?
-Disgusted with the nightly news for raking in the millions while headlining every program with another problem their “live on the scene, action investigative reporting team” found in your City?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, not to fear, Positive Cities is here!
About Positive Cities:
Positive Cities is the website expansion of the Positive Detroit Blog, integrating social media to encourage reader interaction.
Positive Cities will be created to substantially increase exposure of valuable local news and expand upbeat media coverage about local communities; offering a user-friendly based environment for residents to interact, engage, and rediscover the love and pride within your own backyard, while driving passion within the marketplace.
Direct Benefit To You:
Positive Cities is determined to change the landscape of news. Our goal is to give a voice back you, the people, by creating a two sided conversation, and changing the perception of how your area is represented on a local, national and global scale.
Our Immediate Goal:
Positive Cities is a non-profit and on Kickstarter to raise monies to fund our mission. The immediate goal is to pay for the build out of the Positive Cities website. Due to the interactive nature, many custom features have to be designed, created, and programmed. This is a very extensive site and there is nothing out there like it. We will begin with the +Detroit portion and other cities in Michigan. Our goal is much larger, to create a section on the site for every viable city in the US. We will be keeping close attention on where the pledge dollars are coming from when determining which cities will be completed after the initial stages are launched.
So, are you excited to be part of a ground breaking, positive community website? Well than shimmy on over and make your pledge, receive a great prize, and become part of the task force that takes your positive message viral and changes the world’s perception your city.
