Help The Extraordinaries *write* the Echoing Green application!

As many of you may know, The Extraordinaries is a 2009 Echoing Green Semifinalist. We painstakingly pieced together our initial application, agonizing over every word to fit it into a 1200 character limit.

Echoing Green liked what we had to say in the first round!

So, as we move onto phase two, we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us. We need your help, and we’re starting with an experiment…

This project, after all, is not about Ben or myself. This is about you. Our whole project – our dream – is to make it easier for YOU to volunteer. Make it easier for YOU to get involved, and with the aggregate total of all our energy, to make this world a little brighter. So, we need your help.

An Echoing Green fellowship would mean seed funding and support for The Extraordinaries over the next two years. But it’s not just the funding – it’s legal advice, tax advice, and the support of an entire network of entrepreneurs. It’s a HUGE boost to our cause, and more importantly, a big step towards making it easier for YOU to volunteer. Again, this is not about Ben or myself, it's about you.

So, over the next two weeks, I’ll be posting chunks of draft text onto our blog – pieces of our application that need your input! The more great minds we have working on this application, the better it will be!
