About a month and a half ago Shirley and I enjoyed a splendid afternoon chatting with our friends from BrandOutLoud.
Judith and Mark were taking a break in Hong Kong, and we managed to catch up and share some of our experiences and ambitions.
We came away from the afternoon re-energized and just bursting with ideas!
On the agenda is a reorganization of our website. We hope to make it simpler, easier to navigate, but somewhat more informative. We frequently get asked the same questions over and over again, a clear indication that we haven’t made that information available on our website.
The new Ridealist website should give you everything you need to know about how we operate, how we choose projects, and what we expect from the folks we work with.
In the meantime, if you have any suggestions on what you’d like to see on the Ridealist website, then shoot us an email and let us know!
Shirley has already begun working on a few designs, and they are pretty cool.
In the meantime, you can follow what we’re doing on our “official blog” at www.gelken.com
So when will this new website be available? Ah, now that’s an excellent question.
We are concurrently working on a number of projects and it would be fair to say we are having “time management issues” - that is, to0 much to do, too few hours in the day.
But we’re getting there.
Keep up to date with our blog, and follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter!

A challenging and ongoing project for RUFG in Uganda. Requests for help from Kenya, Cameroon, India, US, HK, and China.
And we're working on "re-inventing" our main webpage and business model to make it more sustainable for the long-term.
It's a lot ground to cover for two volunteers working in their spare time, wouldn't you agree?
2011 is rapidly developing into a year that WE need to ask for help.
Through our growing number of contacts, Ridealist is now uniquely positioned to make a significant and positive impact on the lives of countless deserving individuals and grassroots groups around the globe.
Give it a moments thought.
Our - admittedly rather primitive business model - is designed to help people reach their goals, reach their potential. And it has been working.
Imagine what we could achieve with the right help,
An investment in Ridealist is an investment that spreads, that expands, that is reusable, shared, and ultimately sustainable.
But we're not holding out the begging bowl here. It isn't just about money - not to say it isn't a vitally important component.
What we're asking is that you invest your intellect, your connections, your experience.
Share with us your knowledge,
Make Ridealist -- all it can be.
Not for us, not just for you, but for all the people we have the potential to touch.
