Thank You Volunteers

Where We Need Help

There are lots of places we need help (like everywhere!) But there are certain things we really need help on! Some of the specific things are:

We need someone to mail out the initial form we send out (volunteer interests form) to all volunteers when they sign up as a volunteer. I’ll furnish the envelopes, paper and stamps. We’re trying to find someone that can make this form and put it on our website so that it can be filled out online but in the meantime we have to mail them out! It’s not real time consuming but it is important to mail them out right after the volunteer signs up and I am definitely failing to do that, so if someone could help with that, it would be great ( in fact if we had someone from every country that would save us on postage!)

Some volunteers to help make up (design) some flyers to try and find more volunteers, we could insert them into the books, pin them up, hand them out or anyway we can think of…..Please share any ideas you have!

We need some volunteers to be in charge of some of our programs; Global solar program, Global wind program, Inform the children plus many other programs, would not take all that much time but would be a commitment, could change or stop easily, I would help you until you were comfortable with it, if interested, just send me an email with good time to call and we could talk about it……….

We could definitely use people to start Local Meetings, they’re easy and fun and I would definitely help you! We pay the costs and great way to spread our message. Another thing we could do is to team you up with someone else in your city to work together to start a meeting or anything else………………

We really could use some help with the web site or any of the technical stuff……….pleeeeeeeaaaaaasssse lol

Organizers, we always need organizers to help find more volunteers………In fact if we could all try to find a couple two or three friends or relatives or anyone, even better, Start your own 3x3 personal network to see how large you could grow it ( see the full story in this weeks newsletter 3X3 Personal Networks!)

We could use help producing this newsletter or our monthly newsletter (writing, pictures, design, and layout. You could help me and then each week or month does more if you would like.

Two new Campaigns we need help with are; Action Alerts Campaign & a Petition Signing Campaigns. Anyone that’s interested in helping with these two campaigns, please write or call!

Anyone that has experience building a “Wiki” we need your help, just let us know!

We still need help giving the Books away, we’re getting closer to our 100,000 books given away goal but we still have a ways to go, so please help us out if you can and a big thank you to all those that ordered books. When you receive the books will you please contact me so I can keep the records updated? I’ve been giving them to small stores and usually I can leave 30 to 50 at each store so that makes it easy, but I think we should design and put the flyers in the books that say we’re looking for volunteers, I think that would really help us grow faster!!!

Well, I’m going to stop now, I’ll put more up next week. Remember to share your ideas and suggestions

Don’t forget to try our chatroom, it’s mainly only for our volunteers, so see if you can reach one of our volunteers on the other side of the world. You can go to our chatroom page (Right under our volunteer link or you can connect virtually from any of our website pages or from our blog and maybe from our newsletters, I’m going to see if I can do that! So anyway, chat away and I think that’s all I better say.

Our volunteers have been coming up with some great ideas for new program and campaigns however because we are growing so fast I don’t have enough time to help develop these new programs and/or campaigns so what I would like to do is set up a committee to help do the necessary work. A committee will consist of six volunteers from anywhere, more if needed. Once a program is brought to fruition the members of that committee can choose to continue working with that program – campaign or they may want to join another committee that’s in the process of being formed or do something completely different. If you’re the type of person that enjoys building something from the start, I think this kind of volunteer work would be very rewarding and of course time, commitments and all of that is the same as all of our work, it’s up to you but you would be working with a small group. Anyone interested in being on a committee please send me an email stating so, you’ll be put on a list and be informed of new committees forming and you could join that one or wait for a committee that’s more inline with your particular interests. So if this sounds interesting to you, please send me an email to

These are only some of the current opportunities we have. If you have a particular skill or interest or idea please write us or call us to discuss it. . (360) 270-7996 Thank You
