Line 1: Line 1:
 +====== We can almost guarantee that you will not become a millionaire!! ======
  
 +
 +But since there is a possibility for things to turn out better than we expect, we have decided not to promise anything.
 +
 +All good things have to start somewhere, and we dare say that this venture could very well be what you have been looking for all that time?
 +
 +Why don't you study what we have to say, and then get back to us when you're done!
 +
 +The Global Ability Initiative is a venture dedicated to the development of gratis, open source software for the disabled, the sick and the needy - We aim to provide completely free assistive software to a wide variety of people, suffering for example from Aphasia, MS, ALS, Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities as well as pushing initiatives in the field of ECG monitoring.
 +
 +However software development doesn't happen by it self and we are short on time, (we perform our work on a spare time basis, and with families to care for, time is not too kind on any of us), thus we are looking for an opportunity to enable developers to switch away from normal jobs, into a position within The Global Ability Initiative so that they can work full time providing Aphasia, MS, ALS, sufferers etc. with software that can improve their life quality without robbing them blind.
 +
 +How we expect this to be done ? Well along several avenues, first patronages.
 +
 +We figure there is a growing trend among companies a will to show social responsibility, we can offer them a chance to become patrons of a project with the potential to help millions of people world wide.
 +
 +Becoming a patron should be possible for everyone, from small shops to global corporations, we have several options for them to choose from from.
 +
 +There is a 500 EUR patronage with local boasting rights to full global patronages. We would certainly also accept smaller patronages, those would be listed as friends of The Global Ability Initiative on the homepage.
 +
 +We have statements from medical doctors and others that encourage that our project is supported.
 +
 +You could if you have an interest act as an “advertisement/patronage broker”, you could do this as a commission paid officer, or you could do this as a volunteer foregoing pay.
 +
 +You could also help us build a sales organization in the Netherlands capable of raising funds for the project on an annual basis.
 +
 +If the above doesn't sound interesting there are a number of other volunteer positions we need filled either by you or persons you might know, we need a studio engineer/studio technician to handle recording for us.
 +
 +We need male and female voice artist willing to give the disabled a voice with the help of aforementioned studio volunteer.
 +
 +We need people to join our awarness campaign.
 +
 +We need people who can act as press liason and build good ties with the media.
 +
 +We need people willing to “go to the doctor” present what we are doing, get their support, either financially or as endorsers of the project, we can always use additional programming personnel and we are interested in people capable of producing photographs and/or video to promote the cause. So as you see there are a wide variety of opportunities here.
 +
 +If you go to our webpage PLEASE NOTICE that the site is undergoing an overhaul, within a week I should be ready with a wiki based site that will make collaboration on several levels much easier.
 +
 +I am expecting to migrate the project to the new site within the coming week, this might cause some access problems until all the DNS servers have registered the migration properly (for the non techies: DNS servers are like traffic control cops, or helpful personnel giving direction to people on the Internet so that they can find homepages).
 +
 +If you think any of the above opportunities sound interesting please get in touch with us ASAP.
 +
 +I have to ask that you paste the following into the subject line to defeat the SPAM filter and send the mail to webmaster@globability.org
 +
 +The subject needs to be = Aut. Code:1vddddf04tvFO?body=Do not edit the subject! %0A
 +
 +Looking forward to your swift reply.
 +
 +Kind regards
 +
 +Einar Petersen, Project Manager - The Global Ability Initiative.
