Okay, we are really pushing the edges of the comfort zone here! Two concurrent events combined today for me, and I completed my ACT5 Objective while also answering a call for help from a local organization.
Mt. Diablo ASTD has registered with allthis
, a new system where people can auction goods and services on behalf of other groups. Nonprofits and other groups simply send out a request to their members and partners, and those people go in and set up an auction for something they can sell or do, and when the auction sells, the nonprofit gets the money.
I created an auction for a service I can provide -- visual facilitation
for a meeting in my local area -- and when the auction sells, I'll work with the winner to schedule and plan the meeting, I'll facilitate it, and I'll provide a post-meeting summary. Scary!
Allthis is just starting up, so the site is still in beta and you can't create auctions unless you're working with one of the nonprofits that are starting out with allthis, but the site should be live on April 29 -- and so will my auction!
