Thanks!

Thanks for joining this Blog! We are all Jos and YOU can do something substantial for this fund-raising effort. You can do this for everyone in Nigeria, for the people who lost their lives in Jos, for the ones who survived, including yourself because no one knows tomorrow.

1. Spread the news and let those around you know what is happening. Post links to this blog on facebook and twitter using the links provided. Discuss it with your friends, parents, people in authority. Remember that if we keep quiet today, it will keep happening.

2. More than talking, give. Contribute money or kind to the relief agencies, feed a survivor, take in a refugee, march for the future of Nigeria...give of your time, effort and wealth...What would you do?

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.
2cute4u.

  3. sorry dear..imagine these people sending ur mail to spam.. i just decide to check in spam and there it was.
    i think you are doing an amazing thing and will lend my support..we are already doing something similar in my church but really, it cannot be too much..infact, there isnt enough attention even paid to this.
    i think you should get a button that we can all display on our blogs to support and make this more in-ur- face..
    i'l be part of the solution as much as is possible
