GENESIS


I’m writing this a motivated person, galvanized into action by the reactions of those around me.
I would be honest to say when this idea came into my mind I had no inkling as to how it will be accomplished; Suffice it to say I was full of strength and determination but no solid ideas..
All I did was send mails to those I felt would come to my rescue-Point me in the right direction, Ask for their Participation in this project.
                                                
                                               
Some replied immediately, others haven’t, at least not yet, but being as optimistic and hopeful as ever, I believe that they’d get to back to me.
I wrote a post on my blog titled SAVE OUR SOUL-BE COMPASSIONATE. And I want to thank everyone who contributed to that post by commenting, May you all always be strengthened.
I want to thank Suru and Leggy who went out of their way to send me a personalized mail. I’m most grateful.
I’d still get to Suru..
I have to thank Muyiwa (people in the limelight) for positively asking me questions that set my brain in motion and really made the concept more solid. He did do that and also promised to assist me in whatever way necessary.
I want to thank Sting (Nigerian Scorpio) for embracing my ideas and encouraging me so much I finally believed in what I had set out to do. She did make me believe and see that I could do it. To her, will I be eternally grateful.
I want to thank Suru for setting this whole plan in motion by creating this blog thereby actualizing this initiative. She named it and did it so effortlessly. Simply put, she simplified our job; she doesn’t kid-Suru, Always the Action chic! You rock!
Not everyday would you find such people willing to offer themselves to serve a purpose that they were not sure of its origin like Sting, Muyiwa and Suru..
I earnestly pray you all, Nigerian bloggers and other bloggers have the zeal to help and give; do so by making this project -WE ARE JOS a huge and mighty success.
I hope it’s not too much to ask you to sacrifice something little for someone in a very much disadvantaged position? Because that is the best we can do for them given the circumstance. Please, let us all do this. We would feel better when we do.
‘CAUSE NO MATTER HOW WE BLOG ABOUT NIGERIA AND HER PROBLEMS FROM NOW TO INFINITY, IT WON’T HELP. WE NEED ACTION-WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING IN OUR LITTLE WAY, FROM THE LITTLE WE HAVE IRRESPECTIVE OF THE LITTLE CORNERS OF THIS EARTH WHERE WE RESIDE.
                                                         

I would stop here and be back with a slight introduction of who 2cute4u really is so as to dispense of any doubts most of you must have about this project (I don’t blame you if you do).That way, you could check us all out if you so wish. Thank you so very much.

How This Started

It all started when I received this email:
I'm sorry to bug you but I have a concept which i would really explain
on my monday post titled ' SAVE OUR SOUL'.Most times I've often wondered why we Nigerians
complain and proffer no explanations or solutions to the problems that
herald us. In whatever small way I can, I try to solve a problem or
even make an effort.
What exactly is my point?
It was the effort of wyclef jean that made other stars come together
to give towards Haiti.. I noticed some Naija bloggers even gave
towards Haiti while at the same time decrying what happened in Jos,
VERBALLY while saying God should help Nigeria..
Please everyone should wake up for Nigeria.. Lets give towards those
who have lost everything in Jos.. It was really devastating. student,
working class,everyone, we can do something..We can enlist the
connections we have and also get across to Nigerian
actors,actresses,models,
musicians,I'm not saying they
shouldn't use their money as they please, but come on.. A little
thought for those ravaged with violence and bloodshed..
I'd be dedicating my post on today to this and subsequent issues.
If you agree with me, help me plan this thing anyway whatsoever
available..If they can't help them, Let us, that way, people would
help them and extend to Nigeria as a whole.
Share my views with others and do reply if you are with me...thank you.

Now tell me who can receive such a passionate email and just ignore it? So here we are now, creating this blog to help our fellow Nigerians in Jos. Please before you doubt us give us a chance. We already have some good ideas but we want even better ideas. If you want to join our WeAreJos committee and also be an admin in this blog then please let me know. The more the merrier!
