Action Plan: Late August, Early September: Slightly Different
At this point I am starting to “forward” reflect, anticipating how I will feel, trying to override how I currently feel. The level of response is not what I had hoped for, and I am beginning to wonder if that is truly a reflection on me. I mean, I’m not sure I would follow me anywhere if I wasn’t the team leader. I feel that we need at least one more male on the first week, and 3 more team members on the second week. It’s just something I see in our team’s future. Of course, I’m not about to turn down any woman’s help, I just feel GOD has another man out there for us somewhere on the fringe who just needs a little convincing: someone not too sure of their own value and worth. I’m a little put out that I feel that strongly about it. I know that GOD’s positioned me by the elbow, pointing toward that conclusion. I haven’t shared that with my other team leaders yet, because I haven’t found a plausible way to present it. I just keep sending out notices, wording them a little different, asking for a slightly different outcome, a slightly different emotional investment.

Hi, K. Hope all is well.
I sent this notice out to all I know via email this morning. I thought maybe by making it more personal and asking people to pass it on, we might see more response action. Feel free to copy and paste and use your name to forward to your email list. :-)
“Hello! I'll not only be returning to New Orleans again this fall, but will be co-leading the first of two consecutive, light-construction teams!
I'd would love it if you could join me. But, if you can't, I'd like to ask you for your help in spreading the word about Get In The Car's New Orleans rebuilding efforts scheduled for this coming October. We are still accepting team member applications, so please pass this information onto anyone and everyone possible - family, friends, coworkers - all are welcome. Detailed flyer attached. Thanks so much."

I'm headed back to New Orleans in October - this time with two consecutive light construction rebuilding teams. We'd like a few more volunteers to round out each team.
I do realize that times are hard for everyone right now, but someone may be looking for an opportunity just like this one... so, would you please consider helping by simply posting this information on your office door, on an overhead bin, on your desk - anywhere anyone might see it? I'd really appreciate it. Thanks."
