RE: [GetVolunteering] Welcome!

Hi Trish,

Actually - that isn't the plan.  There are other groups that specialize
in organizing volunteer events during weeknights and weekends, for
example:
http://www.onebri...­
http://www.hoba.o...­

This meetup was formed because it is hard to find a group to volunteer
with during regular business hours - even though there are many more
people who could be volunteering due to the recession.  And there
are so many non-profits providing vital services that need help, that
are faced with a combination of reduced funding (grants, individual
donations, etc.) and sharp increases in demand for their services.

In part, I hope this group can become a bridge between the non-profits
who need help during business hours and the people who have time to
assist them.  I believe we can make such a big difference.

I'm sorry you aren't able to join us - but that might be a good thing!
However, if you know people who can, it would be wonderful if you could
let them know about what we are doing.  More people who join mean more
meetups we can run and more help we can provide.

A broader question to the group: are the description and about pages ok?
I don't want to be confusing, but at the same time I don't want to dwell
on the recession.  This is about what we can do.

Regards,
Daniel.

Hi All,

Just a quick welcome note.

Firstly, thanks for signing up to Get Volunteering.  I'm delighted by
the response - almost 100 signups in around 5 days.

As I've said in the description, I want this to be an active group that
holds at least one volunteering meetup during business hours per week.
I think there's room to hold many more events per week.

But for the moment, we still have 11 spots left for Glide on Wednesday.
If you can make it, please RSVP.  And if you know other people who might
be able to come along, please let them know.

More to come.  I look forward to meeting you soon!

Thanks and regards,
Daniel.
