I was going to add this under call to arms but decided to start a new thread.
Fred and Ken have laid the facts out pretty clearly I think. And the nuts and bolts of it is that MaleSurivor needs proper funding. We just cannot do it ourselves.
Personally I think that charities have their hands full but I am not adverse to going to Corporate Morth America and to Foundations. I mean lets get the fundraising committee to really go at this. Lets divide North American and the UK into sectors and go after the funding. Lets invite them to our site. Lets let them hear from our board of directors who pay their own way to board meetings.
I hate to say this but there has to be a business side of MaleSurvivor. With the proper funding we can do so much more. More scholarships, more sweayt equity members, more retreats both in Morth American and the UK for our brothers across the pond ( big pond actually)
Now I want to let all you guys in on a somenthing that I have found out. Big secret I bet. The more you help others and the site the more you benefit from it. Hey I am slow so it took a while to sink in.
Anyway I would really like to have us all volunteer for something no matter how small it is. I also know that there are some of us who cannot because of circustance and where they are in their healing. Well my brothers who can I think that that fact alone should spur us on.
Since coming here 13 months ago I have travelled father in my healing than the past 6 years of therapy.
I personally want to thank those who have worked their buns off to make us feel safe and I mean all of you and you know who your are.
I want The Board to give us specifics of where they need help and I dont want this put off. The time for action is now.
It is payback time so that MaleSurvivor can truly be a place of refuge and healing and safety and be an advocate for the one in six of the male population who suffer.
Sorry to be so verbose but I am passionate about this.
