WHO IS DOING THE ATTRACTING?
We all are!!!
We generate electricity for the light as we interact with one another.
In order to run smoothly, our lighthouse needs some structure.
Volunteer Coordinators for common areas, to post in our Closed Group messages relevant to their particular area and to email members when appropriate. Some areas are serviced by individuals, eg some of us have shops on our websites so no need for an overall shop co-ordinator, although I think a Shops page on our website, listing all the shops, would be a good idea. And the cafe can be 'bring and share' food for one another. We have an online gallery on the website, so that's taken care of. Keeping open-house and inviting guests is something we can all do.
The areas where I think we need co-ordinators are:
CHILL-OUT ROOM (Fb Closed Group) – volunteer co-ordinator needed, please
We can all share inspirational stories and uplifting and inspiring tidbits, but it'd be good to have someone to keep an eye on things and to post something if nothing's been shared for a week or so.

Over to you, my friends …
What do you think of this 'vision' of IDEA as a lighthouse and how it might translate to an online environment? What would you like to add?
Would you be able to give, say, 5 minutes a day or every other day to initiate a post in our closed group/ comment on a post and/or welcome a new member both in our closed group and on our public Fb page?
I invite you to share your thoughts and ideas in our closed Facebook group where this article is also featured.
With love and thanks for your unique contribution,
Lindsay Treen Hollom
Founder of IDEA
