Hi all, and thank you for your comments. I welcome any and all help. this evokation is going to require many great minds and hearts to succeed.

Hello Michele I see that you already have a sort of introduction in the first paragraph (the place) So why not jump out and place a proper pitch at the top?
Remember job-hunting rules: you normally have less than 20 secs to grab the attention -and empathy- of the reader.
I would write something like:
“This Evokation consists of a humanitarian project, focusing on philanthropic/work projects for disadvantaged and underserved populations primarily located in Muslim-majority communities.
During the Hajj, Muslims of all races, creeds and politics set aside cultural differences to participate in a pilgrimage of international tolerance and peace. In this spirit, and perhaps scheduled to coincide with the completion of the annual Hajj pilgrimage, the "Hajj for Humanity" program will seek to create neo-lateral (citizen-to-citizen) projects to communicate with community leaders and citizens.
Hajj for Humanity volunteers would then assemble, assist and enable sponsors, trainers and specialists from neighboring and near-by Muslim and non-Muslim communities to confer with local leaders, and work together to train participants to learn specific skills and establish holistic and sustainable solutions to prioritized challenges”
I would put everything in larger font, soecially the intro, and also highlight in bold the most important words or ideas.
I will keep my comment about the burka for myself ;-)

> About: “The Place” where Hajj for Humanity will operate is anywhere Bottom-of-the-Pyramid, or at-risk communities face challenges to what the U.N. called “universal” human rights----I would add: does the organization have headquaerters? Where? In US, is my guess.
> If you have something palpable already, it would be a good idea to tell, and if you have a group of volunteers or employees it would also be a good idea to say.
> My guess is that the WBI is eager to help projects which look like they only need the final push to launch.

@ ternura, thank you for your input. I will edit in as soon as return from school. @ Bongamusa, hi, great to see you!!! Please clarify "approach plan" -- do you mean initial country/community of activity? I have several in mind, but have found that forming the foundation necessary for Hajj for Humanity is such a large task (beyond the simple step of forming a 501C, housing at least the headquarters in the US, where I am), that I actually want to wait until I have a fully functional Board in place before choosing a site. Especially since most of Hajj for Humanity activities will involve at least 2 nations. I would appreciate any additional input; for example, if you have a key community in mind, i would be glad to include it in the planning doc**entation.
thank you all for your inputs. good evoking

@Michele: great news that you do not have a site yet. Please do not forget to add that for the initial stage you will not incurre in expenses for infraestructure!
Do you happen to have a site or some way to recruit Hajj Volunteers?
Well I leave you, it's tiem to bed for me. I will be around during the weekend. See you X, T
Comment by cameron michael keys on May 14, 2010 at 9:18pm
perhaps you can convince some mullas, muftis, or sheikhs to issue a fatwa calling for citizens to embark on a Hajj for Humanity. in these cultures such an endorsement would be a very big deal.
Comment by Michele Baron on May 15, 2010 at 4:37am
@ternura, yes, I will be around on weekend as possible to work on this and comment/assist with others' posts... @cameron, i appreciate your input. I do hope to receive support of this type, and am exploring options available in this direction... It could make a huge difference. thank you all very much for your replies.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
