attend meetings. By October of next year we will have 100 members. Community involvement and outreach: By the first of the new year we will have enough members to go out and lend a real helping hand within the community. We will decide as a group on a minimum of 3 charities to contribute to, and we will donate our time accordingly. We will not proselytize to people at these events anymore than to explain who we’re with and what we’re about when asked. We will win hearts and minds in this fashion, as actions always speak louder than words. By March of 2011 we will find partner organizations who have goals in common with us. The idea is to set up shop with them and coordinate with their volunteer efforts and to then, by October of 2011, have co-sponsored activities within these groups. There will be a minimum of 3 partner organizations with no maximum cap. For the first 3 we will endeavor to make sure that each of them focus on different areas of the community (i.e., one organization could focus on the environment, one could focus on animal treatment, and one could focus on people). After the minimum 3, we can double on causes. We will also be counted amongst the chapters who show a viewing of Peter Joseph’s latest Zeitgeist Film upon its release in early January, 2011. Fundraising and other Monetary Interests In the above mentioned partnerships we will hope to do a fundraising event where we give something back. This could be that for however x amount of dollars given we plant x amount of trees, or spay/nuder x amount of dogs/cats, etc. On top of this by October of 2011 I want to have a live music event that people come to wherein they pay a door fee and a portion of the proceeds go to a benefit of some kind, a portion goes towards paying for the event, and a portion goes to our chapter of this movement so we can plan more ambitious events in 2012. I have already begun undertaking this project. We will also be obtaining non-profit status so that we can legally fundraise. I would like to have this done by the date we show the Zeitgeist Film in January so that we can collect currency for use on other projects. This is Peter Joseph’s idea.
