SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Eyes Of Main Street™: A social enterprise in North Minneapolis is taking a grass roots approach to rebuilding America one job, one home, one community at a time. Social enterprise embodies the spirit of non-profits, civic-minded individuals, corporate social responsibilities and for-profit businesses that can yield both social and financial returns. Creating economic opportunities—jobs that provide livable wages and benefits—requires both commitment and action from leaders of small businesses who understand the needs of ordinary people, job creation, and timely economic development in the community. Eyes Of Main Street™ will assist job creation projects, small businesses, startups and manufacturing companies willing to invest in North Minneapolis from net proceeds (50 percent) of the books: Age Discrimination: An Epidemic in America Affecting People of All Ages © and An American Tragedy “The Great Recession”: Poetic Times From Wall Street to Main Street ©.

Risks and challenges

Funding delays can pose both risks and challenges in meeting project goals, scheduling book orders and shipping on time. However, a majority of the creative work such as writing, graphic design, and marketing strategy is complete. Once publisher receives payment of processing fees book orders will ship to company warehouse within 10 business days or sooner. After book inventory is received by author,Thank You cards, signed books and bookmarks will be shipped to backers immediately. Expected delivery of merchandise within the U.S. is 3-5 business days.
