Hi everyone ~
Most of you already know that I am in the process of forming a non-profit 501(c)3 organization to serve the amputee community, called Compatible Parts. (eventually it will be Compatible Parts, Inc).
So, my nephew Ted in Delaware (Wildwood flower
's son) is helping me build a web site. Actually, he is building it and I'm cheering him on!
So although it is in early phases of construction, I can tell you a bit about it.
Along the left hand side of the page are links. Some are internal links to take you to pages within the site, such as Daily Inspirations or my editorials. Some are external links to take you to helpful resources. In that short list of five external links, Bill said I could put a link to the Garden Helper because of our disability forum here. The other four external links are to the two prosthesis labs and the two main physical therapy facilities.
We will have a forum.
We will have a photo gallery of our members doing fun stuff together, and pictures of work being done in the labs and gyms.
We will have a table of events so members can check in about support groups, suppers, the dance classes, etc.
In my editorial pages there will also be pages for members to write opinions, like in a newspaper with "letters to the editor".
We also hope to inform about useful topics such as legislation, or which restaurants and churches and whatnot are truly accessible and which are harder to use, etc.
Our logos is in the shape of an oval. It is a lighthouse with the words "Together There Is Hope".
I'm going to get a PO Box in Portland if people want to write to me, and I've put a filter on my email so mail from the site goes directly to a separate folder.
So, that's my news. What do y'all think?
