Dear colleagues -
Thomas and Eva said:
There sure was one irresistible offer made for the 2008 WOSonOS! In fact the
people who joined for the circle to work on the decisions on future
WOSonOS's almost made the decision before the offer was made. But after some
persuasion they agreed on experiencing the "fantastic" show from the
marvelous production manager (living a bit closer to Hollywood) Lisa Heft.
For all those who want to host future WOSonOS's we heard a rumor that there
is a video produced called "How to present an irresistible WOSonOS-offer"
Some of you were there in Halifax 2005 when I invited WOSonOS to San
Francisco. There is a lovely community of OS practitioners and a great
network of diverse facilitators ready to welcome you here. Some of you were
in Moscow in 2006 when the delightful Wendy Farmer O'Neil invited the world
again, on my behalf (as I was unable to attend the WOSonOS last year). This
year, I asked the Most Amazing Thomas Herrmann and the Incredibly Fabulous
Eva P Svensson to invite again, on my behalf, as I was unable to join you
fabulous folks in Kiev.
For my invitation this year, I decided to design something totally
interactive which would also show the warmth, energy and depth of my
invitation, and Thomas and Eva did a marvelous job.
I look forward to seeing the video ! perhaps if someone can send me a copy
or a link, we can show that video as the opening of WOSonOS 2008.
Thank you Thomas and Eva for representing me and the local community of
practitioners to invite and welcome you all to WOSonOS 2008 in San
Francisco, California, USA!
The stand in-Access Queen Eva P made great work, of course together with the
generous participants - 105 dollars and 45 EUROS were raised for the fund
which helps people access these marvelous events.
Dear Eva - thank you for holding space for the Global Village Marketplace
and the Silent Auction this year in Kiev. And my warm thanks to all of you
in Kiev who contributed to the Access Queen Fund. Access Queen is a little
project I coordinate which raises resources (a little bit of money and a lot
of other shared resources like home stays, people buying two registrations
to give away one to an 'Asker', ride shares and more) to help people with
lower financial abilities get to the annual WOSonOS. So each year we
generate awareness and resources (thanks to those of you who contributed
funding and other resources this year and good work, Kiev team!!), each
WOSonOS there is a Global Village Marketplace and Silent Auction in whatever
form that may take, and each year, proceeds from the Auction and Marketplace
go towards the next year's WOSonOS Access Queen Fund. Often the WOSonOS
hosts also donate to the fund after they cover their expenses for the event.
In this way, we help each other as we share our resources. Feel free to
contact me directly if you would like to contribute anything to the fund (if
for example you sell some of your poetry, or have a jumble sale in your
front garden, or sell lemonade on the sidewalk and contribute the funds to
the AQ fund...). And as part of next year's registration, we will offer you
opportunities to help others come to the WOSonOS.
Thank you all for your generosity, and your playfulness, and congratulations
on a marvelous WOSonOS 2007!
Lisa (also known as Access Queen)
