Social Business Enterprises

Have you ever thought about starting your own business? What about a business that addresses global social issues that are happening right now in the world?

Here's something to think about:

I cannot emphasize enough how little people think about opportunities outside of their own comfort zone. Everyone, including myself, is guilty of pursuing the "American dream" but we do not realize that there are children who are continuously under the threat of terrorism today. The shock is immense and perhaps very easy for us, in the comfort of our own homes and offices to simply forget and move on with our daily lives.

But what if we moved beyond this comfort level and push ourselves just a little bit to think of solutions? Of course we have our own problems with American soldiers in Iraq, civil problems, national problems and so forth. But if you were to go look on this website, you might find something that will motivate you to act just as much as I was to write this posting.

In my own childhood, I, like any other child, had the right to curiosity, play and innocence. Truly, I would not want other children to be denied the same right.
