Marilyn commented on Compassion Education Corps

Brioné, I like the idea of incorporating residents in addition to our local partners. In fact, the recruitment of getting volunteers might be directed by our partners. I used Jordan as an example to make this proposal real, but my hope would be through the possibility of being able to use the train-the-trainer method, we might be able to have several different teams to respond to emergency and on-going needs. The important thing is to have teams who can deliver training in different languages. Our Mexico Compassionate initiative is very interested in this concept and I'm hoping with compassionate partners in Jordan and perhaps in Dubai and other Arab speaking countries we can pull together our Arab speaking group. Also, because of the outreach capacity of Compassionate Indonesia we can be training a Bhasa Indonesian team. Are you interested? Can you get students at your university interested?

Brenda. First, thank you for your very generous words. Second, you should be careful for what you offer. If we are lucky enough to make it through the review process to the comment process, we would like to get a few volunteers to help us grid out the comments in categories, collect names of potential informants and organizations, and then to help with an analysis of the comments. This would have to be a quick process because we would then need to begin reviewing, revising our proposal. Are you games?

Thanks Ken, if we manage to get this funding we are excited to have you as one of our media gurus and the entire Xocial.com team. Thanks for everything you've done for us in creating our own Xocial.com platform, and now Carta de Compassion (in Spanish).
