Thank you

Hello world pulse. I want to thank you all for what I have experienced here so far. It has been more than welcoming, it has been truly loving and inspiring, to say the least. I have connected with the training course and have already contacted someone who I will profile for my first assignment. I have shown this site to a couple of people already and they love it and have said that they believe this place was meant for me. I think so too. I use wifi outside of my home so it is difficult at times to stay in regular contact and learn how to use this site to its full potential but I look forward to working the training course and getting to know the people here. Already, the people I've connected with here have moved me tremendously and the potential for change this site offers has opened up new contacts in my personal life. Thank you so much for that. It means hope and possibility for me.

Women Weave the Web Campaign

Olive9,

I'm excited to read that you've joined us, especially since access is an issue for you! I look forward to reading the profile you're preparing too. I wonder if you would be willing to compose a piece about digital issues for our Women Weave the Web Campaign? I'd love to hear your thoughts about how technology affects your life and the lives of women around you. And your experience accessing the internet outside of your home might be a perfect subject! You can find out more information about the campaign here, http://worldpulse.com/about/blog/announcing-the-digital-literacy-phase-o.... It would be fabulous to have your voice join others as we think through issues around digital literacy in all its complexity.

By participating, you will be joining a global community of women speaking out on the importance of digital inclusion and empowerment for women. Your voice will be delivered to powerful decision makers such as government officials, leaders in the technology industry, and policy makers at international organizations. In addition to influencing global agendas, your submission to the campaign will open the door to incredible opportunities such as:

· Being selected to represent World Pulse at influential international forums. This is your chance to meet key players and make your voice count!

· Connecting and building relationships with grassroots women leaders around the world. Be part of a community of thousands of women speaking out on this issue!

· Exploring and sharing resources for your work on our Campaign Resources page. Find support for your initiatives from funding to volunteers and supporters!

· Getting your voice heard on a global scale! World Pulse will analyze and collate your stories to deliver recommendations to influencers and decision makers on a global scale.

· Getting visibility and support for your work. Your story could be featured on our site, included in an e-magazine, or even published by well-known media outlets!

And the 2014 Lynn Syms Prize will be awarded to an outstanding grassroots woman and visionary voice using digital tools to effect change and advance her community work. The prize will include a $20,000 monetary prize to be paid out over two years to support her community based work, a feature profile on WorldPulse.com, and an all-expense paid trip to speak her message in New York City. You can find more on the website, http://worldpulse.com/campaigns/www/www-women-weave-the-web-campaign-prizes

I hope you'll participate!

Wishing you peace,
Kelly
