Wonderful things are happening!
The new Community Magic web site is up and running. You’re looking at it now!!!
The web site has a listing of Workshops on using Freecycle.org and Craigslist.org
See the Free Trainings tab on the Community Magic web site. Our thanks to Philadelphia Fight for hosting the current set of workshops for October, November and December. We’re seeking additional sites around the City. Please let me know if you can recommend a computer lab for this purpose.
Here is a rundown of recent activities:
- I had a chance to be interviewed at the Macro Mingle Party http://macropub.com/ held at PhillyCAM.
- I was invited to speak briefly at a meeting of a network of “Meals and More” providers hosted by Tracey Williams of the Mayor’s Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity. http://sharedprosperityphila.org/hunger-and-food-access/
- I was invited to speak at a meeting of the Northwest EPIC community organization by Juanita Dennard, the group’s Coordinator. http://dhs.phila.gov/intranet/scintrahome_pub.nsf/Content/Prevention+-+Truancy+Prevention+-+Stakeholders
- Ran a table at the Philadelphia Home Grown Music Festival http://philadelphiahomegrownmusicfestival.com/
I’ve been rewarded with enthusiastic responses from the people I’ve met at these appearances. The ideas behind Community Magic are universally applauded.
The best news is that Community Magic is being adopted by a wonderful local charitable partner. Watch for the official announcement coming soon.
