I would like to try to participate in this, or at least to try to see if we can get something going for Youth Voice Initiative to start being able to do things. But, I cannot do this by myself, and always need people to attend regularly and often. So, if we participate for another organization or for our own on a separate day, Sheri, do you think you would be able to take your group to help pass out the flyers? That would be great. Tricia, Heidi, Courtney, David, Rayshugga Kimato, Shawn, Mike, and David, do you think you could get people to donate, whether it’s $1.00 for the whole thing, or say, $0.50/K? Then post it around social media so we can get as many people to come into this as possible? Hoping to see you all at the next meeting, just to plan something. It’s not easy to get anything done, granted, and I also know people are busy. But, the bigger group we can get to meet 1x/mo, the more we can get done in a shorter amount of time. These efforts for protecting children is a group effort. If there is a different day/time that is better than the 3rd Saturday @ 3pm, maybe we can do that? Also, we could plan to do some sort of potluck so we can eat a meal while discussing things? Just suggestions on what could help us come together as a group better. What can I do to make that possible? I am open to suggestions, to get us launched for tomorrow’s generation and beyond.
