ADBP – A not-for-profit publisher on a mission to entertain people, and to uplift those struggling with poverty and famine.
All Day Breakfast Productions is committed to producing affordable and nature-friendly Entertainment that brings joy to the lives of people from all walks of life. We aspire to make the world a better place to live, and we do so by donating our profits from the business to organizations that work day and night to alleviate poverty.
We also strive to bring excitement for our fans and supporters as well as support independent booksellers and hobby shop retailers by offering fun, "print-only" content, such as our Read and Colour series of graphic novels.
Though we create fun in the lives of people, we do take this honor seriously and strive to ensure that the material we produce isn't just fun, but timely. Often this means shining a spotlight on art and artists from the past, whose work has gone underappreciated or forgotten, while still being culturally-relevant today.
We take pride in the quality of our creations, delivering entertainment to readers from all walks of life. We strive to foster a connection to art and reading that can lift a person's spirits and provide a temporary escape, no matter what challenges they face in their daily lives.

Details on the Board:
As a board member for a not-for-profit, members volunteer their time and skills to direct our publishing operations and donations. Our shareholders are the public, and our profits are public good instead of dollars. Each board member is elected in by the existing board. Members agree to serve a term of one-year and may voice interest in being re-elected to their position by the board if desired when the board is preparing for the annual vote. Board of directors’ vote is held annually in February.

What can we say about Rohit? Boy, can this guy write. Rohit originally joined the team as a data and research assistant, but it was soon clear that this guy was hiding some big talent.
We're looking for good people to set up regional offices, affiliated but managed independently, by people who live in the communities being served. If you and your friends are the kind of good minded citizens who'd like to use comic books to feed and shelter people in your community, and are willing to learn new things and work as a team, this may be for you. If you're willing to assemble your own board, programs and publishing schedules, as well as legally register as a nonprofit in your area, this may be for you. If you are okay with the fact that board members are not paid for their positions, and our reward is public good and not financial profit, this might be for you. If you want to use a great cause to showcase the art, language and culture of your region to the world, this might be for you.
More details about setting up regional chapters of All Day Breakfast Productions - A Not-for-Profit Publisher coming Sept. 2021.
