Last call for new administrator

Repost:

I am the administrator of this community, but am moving on to other things and would like to transfer the administration to someone else. If you'd like to become the new administrator, please send me a message to let me know - (dawni@livejournal.com).

If no one is interested in being the new administrator I'll go ahead and delete the community.

Great charity idea

Every year at about this time, a bunch of our friends get together to have a picnic in a public park and collect for the Oxfam Unwrapped campaign. Every year, the picnic gets bigger.

This is a simple way of spreading the word about a great campaign, one which can divert some of the vast amounts of money spent on luxuries in the Developed World which could instead be used to secure necessities in the Developing World.

In the northern hemisphere, a potluck dinner inside would probably be wiser than a picnic in a park, but the principle could otherwise be the same.

Pay It Forward!

We have an awesome new project in the Community Service Department, reminiscent of "Pay It Forward," that tracks random acts of kindness as they spread across the country. You get a card, you go to the blogspot, you comment on your card number along with the city/state in which it was passed.

Move the World Blogspot.

I am handing out cards like nobody's business but so far I am the only person (I think) to comment on our blog! If you would like a card (or two, or three, or six), please comment here OR email me (fyrefly_@hotmail.com, put "MOVE THE WORLD" in the subject line) with the following information:

-your name and mailing address
-how many cards you want(no more than six)

I will pay for stamps and mailing.

It would be a random act of kindness in its own right to help us get off the ground, and I for one would really appreciate it!

Hey there,

This might come across as random but does anybody know the name of that website where people leave parcels and stuff in random hidden places and then post the location of it online for people to find? I've been trying to remember that site all day and it's just not coming to mind.

Kiva

Kiva is an organization that makes small loans to struggling entrepreneurs in the third world.

Not Negative News is a brand new website that is looking for new members, commenters, and submissions. We need all the help we can get.

We're hoping to change the world and people's days through sharing positive news- would you like to help us? We made the site after deciding that the media has far too much of a negative slant on the news. It rarely reports good things happening, and turns neutral things negative in an attempt to catch your eye. All it does is stress people and upset them. The world is not as bad as that.

If you've read a positive news story, to do with any topic, you can submit it. You can also positively review products, movies, books, hotels, websites, whatever you enjoyed. You can submit your appropriate press releases. You can be cheered up and find out some good things going on around the world.

I hope to see you there!

A Website

I can't tell you all the details right now, but a friend and I are releasing a new website in a few weeks time- one that will be uplifting to people. We're looking for intellectual people to help us get it started. Soon it'll be up and hosted, but we'll need some initial members to help create some content. Would anyone like to volunteer?
