We are fast approaching the date of our initial organizing workshop for the "Social Savvy Seniors Network. We have seven senior citizens scheduled to participate in the Social Savvy Seniors Network Workshop event beginning November 1, 2011. The objective of this workshop is to support our "Cause" of increasing grassroots "Civic Engagemen"t starting at the local level. Our primanry goal is to increase the pool of social capital, specifically targeting retired professionals These seven brave individuals are retired school teachers, financial advisors, ministers, and then me, (Lezah) (a jack of all trades and a master of none). I'm don't consider myself an expert, but I do have knowledge, faith, and passion for community. There is room for my facebook friends to get involved. Those of you who know how to set up a teleconference, groups, or pages using facebook could be a great asset to jumpstarting this project. I am invisioning this to be a regional or national group of civic organizers and volunteers. Some of you already have community projects with national objectives. The Social Savvy Seniors Network is your opportunity to expand your programs and get new supporters. There is no cost to join, but you must be connected by way of "friend or referral of Promise Seed CDC, Inc and Lezah Rous Edwards. Just send me an in box message stating the name of your referral and how you would like to participate. We are still encouraging you to financially support our "CAUSE" of Increasing Civic Engagement, by clicking the donation button at http://facebook.com/promiseseedmarketplace and making a tax deductible charitable contribution. We are anticipating expenses for equipment, training material, professional services, promotion and events. Thanks for any help you can give.
