The .ORG Community - A Unifying Force
I recently read an article that was published in Time Magazine, titled, “The Candidates Stump for National Service.” The article illustrated how the U.S. public interest in service has grown dramatically over the past 5 years and how both Presidential Candidates are demonstrating that National Service will be a priority in both candidates’ administrations.
What caught my eye and got me thinking was the following statement, “that each man (presidential candidate) has asserted that national service not only can solve the country’s problems but also can and should be a unifying force for America in the 21st Century.” The words, “solve problems” and “unifying force” really jumped out at me because these are words that I think define what .ORG’s are all about. As a unified proactive community, impassioned to promote and achieve the greater good, .ORG’s around the world, both large and small, work as a unified force in order to better the world presently and for the future. Building a safe and resourceful community is at the forefront of our mission. .ORG’s who influence our world every day, effecting positive change on our planet are highlighted on the website as “Extraordinary .ORG’s”, demonstrating the creative ways these extraordinary organizations advance their mission. Part of .ORG’s mission to create a resourceful online community is available through our comprehensive library of information, online tools and resources to help fellow .ORG’s effectively build their .ORG online presence. We have also created the .ORG Ambassadors series, which gives a chance for people to share their voices and opinions as an Ambassador and share their voice with the community through our “World Voices” campaign or through a guest blog spot right here on The .ORG Blog. Over the next few weeks I will be highlighting how .ORG’s are making a difference and attaining the goal of creating a community that fosters the ideals of achieving the greater good. Look for later posts to come as part of the series over the next few weeks. In the meantime, I welcome you to share your thoughts and your story of how your .ORG is making a difference.
