Eden Gives Back Club Meeting - Monday, March 7th @ 7pm

Jul!a Jul!a
Hey there everybody! So a while back, you probably saw this thread here, where we started discussing ideas about what we could do to give back to our communities. We want you, that's right, you to help us bring this to life.

We'll meet once a month to discuss different things we can work towards each month, and the best way to donate money to help fund a cause. So please join us right here on this thread on Monday, March 7th at 7 pm eastern, and bring all your great ideas with you!

I have an obligation on Monday nights. Grrr...

Okay, here are some of my ideas for this. Let me know what you think:

I would LOVE to see the kind of outpouring that we saw over the holidays that go either to:

Battered women shelters

OR

LGBTQ Youth Programs that help LGBTQ kids deal with bullying, keep them off streets, support for family. (There is usually a youth program for LGBTQ kids in most metros either through the local LGBTQ community or through the local Unitarian Church)

I'm going to be living for six months in a small village in Mexico and am hoping I can do some fundraising for a group there, En Via (link) which is a non-profit microfinancing organization. I would love to try and figure out how to incorporate that into an Eden Gives Back event.... but will be doing it on my own anyway regardless.

I think that's a great idea! I'm really sorry for the slow response back to you about that, we're still trying to figure out the best way to get the ball rolling over here.

Ok, I'd like to welcome everybody (officially) to the first Eden Gives Back meeting!

Tonight I'd like to bring up:
- Ideas anybody may have for ways we can give back
- Who would be willing to run this? We were thinking a committee of a few people who can coordinate and work to make things happen

Oh no problem! I've had so much work on my plate these past few weeks that I've barely had time to start on my write up for the Eden Spirit club, and I won't be in Mexico for another month or so anyway...

I can't commit to heading the club, for obvious reasons, but I'm willing to contribute in other ways.

As for ideas, I like the cervical/prostate cancer idea that we came up with a few weeks ago.

A few things to add here...

Ideas for organizations and charities should be our second focus. There are no shortages of worthy causes.

First - who want to join in, help, and participate?

BBW's and BexvanKoot's deals sound good, anything along those lines sounds good to me. I would like to help out some animal shelters as well.

I would love to help out, but I will be starting a new job so I do not know how it will affect my days. I am always happy to provide feed back though.

Second - It would great if we could organize this group in such a way to work on a number of projects, with a number of people, in an ongoing capacity.
