START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
START A PETITION

After long and careful consideration, I have come to the decision that it is time for Wolf Singer to move on.

There are many who will be happy at this news, I know, and that's okay. For those who may not be happy about this, however, you're more than welcome to visit my journal; you can even subscribe to it, if you'd like. You'll receive an email notification every time I post (which I do almost every day).

With regard to the Care2 Emergency Services group, please know that it will continue to operate as it has been from the start, including financially. I will be discussing the matter with the hosts so contributions can continue to be made and applied to members in true financial need.  This is a very important group with a very important purpose, and as soon as proper arrangements can be made, the existing funds will be transferred to a new PayPal account (to be set up by whichever host takes over ownership of the group).

In the three years I've been a member of this site, I have watched many changes take place - some good, some not so good.  Thanks to everyone I've met and interacted with here, I've been able to grow as a human being, and I've learned a lot about human nature and about how to live.  I'm grateful for all of my experiences here - both positive and negative; without them, I wouldn't have learned the life lessons I needed to learn.

Until everything is taken care of, my profile page will remain visible. Once everything is done, however, I will be deleting my profile. So, if at some point you should find "Anonymous" beside my posts in groups where that option is not enabled, you'll know I've left.

I wish everyone happiness and wellness.  It's been a real learning experience here on Care2, and I've appreciated being here. Take care, and thanks for taking the time to read this.

The Care2 PetitionSite and the Care2 News Network are powerful tools for change.  A visit to Care2 Frogloop (all links open new windows) proved this:


Blogger Uses Petition Site to Create Better Transportation for NY

Post authored by Ethan Oringel of Green Brooklyn 

When I started Green Brooklyn in December 2006, I knew that I wouldn't be doing much promotion for the site, never mind advertising, and that I wouldn't even really have enough time to create content and links as much as I would like. I was busy starting my green communications consulting company...

Recently, one Green Brooklyn cause has made some waves... Heather McCown of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn kicked off the idea of restoring ferry service from Brooklyn to Manhattan... (more here)



If you ever wonder whether or not one person can make a difference, hopefully, the above article will help ease your mind.

We have powerful tools for change at our disposal here on Care2 Connect, thanks to the hard work of the Support and engineering teams, so if one person can make the kind of changes written about above, so can we.

Have a great day and a great week, everyone.
