It has now been slightly more than one week since the official launch of our new website and there has been lots of interest, feedback and questions since then. In this blog we will clarify a few things and also provide some updates on changes/additions to the site in recent days.
Blogs Sign up
The blogs “subscribe” option is at the bottom left corner of our Main page and most other pages. When you subscribe to the blogs by providing your email address, you will be notified each time we publish a new blog. In fact, if you have already subscribed you should have been notified about this post.
You will not receive emails every time someone posts a comment on one of the blogs. We expect to publish a new blog every 5 – 8 days so email volume will not be significant. However, if the volume becomes too much for you, you can always unsubscribe later. If you have not signed up for our blogs, we encourage you to do so since this will be the best way to keep up with our growing community and stay connected. If you have already signed up, please encourage a friend to subscribe and join the adventure.
Confidentiality of your email
When you provide us your email address, we will not use it for any other purpose than contacting you about B2E Group. It will not be shared with anyone.
Site changes and additions
Murumba “Eaglesnest” Water Project: New addition describing our recently completed water project in the village of Murumba in Kenya. Click the link to go directly there or find it in the Nations section.
Donations: Located on the Main and Nations pages left sidebar, this feature allows you to donate to B2E Group Nations projects via PayPal. You can donate directly from your PayPal account or with any major credit card. We are in the process of researching new detail on our future projects and will update our Nations page when we do. When you click the “Donate” button, you will be taken directly to the PayPal site where you can select the amount of your donation and also indicate which project you want to direct your funds to.
Finally, we’d like to use this blog and the notification you get as a test of the overall process. Please check out some of the new changes and comment either on this blog or other places on the site. Remember this site is intended to be a worldwide community of two-way interaction. It is not intended to be a one-way broadcast of our thoughts and ideas. It is our hope that this site will push past the shortcomings of Facebook and develop into a vibrant online community that eventually will meet using other technologies such as Google Hangouts and Skype Group Chat. We have been connecting with people in a similar way in the past few years and have found it to be a lifeline for those of us who have stepped beyond the institutional church and are looking for an active place of belonging, interaction and real human connection. We believe we are in the early phases of a true reformation of the concept of community.
Your interaction at this point in the process is critical for us to test the functionality of the site and to kickstart our electronic community. Join in and help make the experience better for everyone.
