Thanks, apologies, news, etc..

It is a very exciting time for us here at Ridealist, it has been a wonderful start to the New Year.

Not least is the sudden surge in the number of followers we have received on Twitter, and the multiple re-tweets of our messages.

We'd like to thank you all for your support, and even if we haven't acknowledged each one personally, your "follow" and every "re-tweet" means a lot to us. Thank you.

We've also received many emails etc asking how we can help. As we mentioned in our previous post, we've responded to everyone, and are working through each request, but we really depend on your input too. So do please stay in touch, nudge us if you feel the need! We won't be offended!

This weekend we'll begin working on two promotional video's for Ridealist - as they say, the plumber's tap always drips, and we thought it was about time we did a video for ourselves.
Hopefully, they will give you another insight into our services and what we can do to help your grassroots nonprofit or community based group.

The idea isn't to promote Ridealist, per se, but rather illustrate the kind of short video we can make for you with limited resources and time.

In other news!

Shirley and I were delighted to receive a phone call a couple of days ago from an organisation that is mustard keen to host our Hands of Africa Children's Art Exhibition. This is a very significant and important breakthrough in the project. We'll be having a meeting next Wednesday to iron out the details, so please keep your fingers crossed and pray for us to!

On Thursday we're heading over to Harmony House to discuss producing a series of short videos dealing with the heartbreaking issue of domestic violence against women and children.

Each video, perhaps 2 to 3 minutes long, will deal with one specific individual, their story, how they sought help, and how they emerged strong and confident in themselves and their future.

And on Friday, we're off to City Hall to scout out the venue for the next Peace International Foundation (Hong Kong) concert. We'll be assisting another volunteer media crew in filming the concert at the end of the month.

We did the last one (here) single handed, but for this one it is time to bring in the music video experts, and we are just "stoked" at the opportunity to assist - and what a learning experience!

As always, the primary ethos of Ridealist is: If you can afford to pay, we are not the crew you need. So yes, as usual, all of the above is pro-bono. And the feeling is just great.

Chris & Shirley
