Searching for World Pulse Ambassadors

Greetings!

On April 27th in Portland, Oregon, World Pulse will be hosting the first in a series of intimate salons and events across the nation that will culminate in large 2011 Global Connection events. More than events, these powerful "experiences" will connect local and global networks of women worldwide. We are proud to kick off in Portland, the city that gave birth to World Pulse. At the event, we will give thanks to our incredible founding community of supporters and celebrate the rising global leadership of women across the city.

We are also aiming to activate our founding community of Portland supporters on PulseWire. Introducing them to a member of our community (that's you!) will be vital in making this happen. If you are interested in acting as an Ambassador for World Pulse and the PulseWire community, please answer the following questions and post them in your journal:

1) What does World Pulse/ PulseWire mean to you?

2) What brought you to World Pulse? And what has been your experience on PulseWire?

Please limit your answers to 100 words or less per question. We will be printing your statements, along with your username, profile picture, and country flag, on a card to be handed out at the upcoming Portland event.

Use your personal PulseWire journal to write your answers to the above questions and use the tag PulseWire Testimonial to submit your story and represent our global community of grassroots women leaders.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

In solidarity and partnership,

Jade Frank

Ambassadors for WorldPulse

I'm looking forward to seeing you all again in person a week from Tuesday! I'm hoping to bring Katy Kokler who is the energy behind the Portland Fruit Tree Project, www.portlandfruit.org. Katy started this Portland non-profit to register and organize gleaning of people's existing fruit trees then give most of the high-quality, fresh food to neighborhood food banks. She is one of those strong, clear visioned young people who has made a big impact on her community. I'm trying to steer her toward WorldPulse as she is personally strong and her project is easily imitatable. This model brings so much to food security and redistrbuting what would just drop and rot if not for PFTP. Perhaps a nudge from someone like you would help?

What a great idea!

Tom,
We are all looking forward to meeting you in person at the event and are thrilled that you are bringing Katy along. We will all be wearing name tags so don't hesitate to introduce yourself and Katy to the World Pulse team. See you soon,
Janice

Kudo's to Katy for her inspiration and action in launching such a wonderful project. Partnering with WorldPulse can help get the word out to encourage folks in other communities to follow her lead.
