Volunteers Wanted for Half the Sky Movement: The Game

Use your skills for social good! Volunteer for a few hours each week with Half the Sky Movement: The Game, a Facebook adventure that highlights how women around the world are creating opportunities for themselves and others. The game is based on The New York Times Bestseller, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide.

Here's my line… 😉

Okay for real though: i saw the interview of the authors on George Strombolopolous and WHAT A POWER-COUPLE those two are!!! So naturally I followed them to their works, website and linkedin, and couldn't wait for something like this. The best part: I have the skills.

If I do get to chose some of the potential assignments, I'll go with:

1. The pictograms for facebook (I'm an artist: blog and artwork can be viewed at http://www.goldenratiopaint.wordpress.com, and more artwork of mine at the FaceBook Group "Pandora'Z PaintBox"). And I'm good with technology 🙂

2. Writing blog posts for the Half the Sky Movement: The Game blog – I love to write and readers love my work. See blog above. If you can use my kind of writing style, let me know!

3. Composing engaging tweets each week (at least 30 tweets) – I love writing and being concise. I'll have fun with this one.

4. I love coming up with new solutions and new projects and carrying them through. I'll innovate for you once I get to know my new team mates and environment better.

My number will be emailed to you privately. Feel free to contact me anyhow.
