Our Second Thanksgiving

by etherapy

Alison (Unaspencer) wrote this last year. It is so beautiful, I want to share it again:

Two weeks old and it's our first Thanksgiving as a social networking community. As I write that and think about the nearly 2,300 users, over 90 groups and too much activity for me to follow, it's hard to believe we're only two weeks old. We are truly blessed.

Judy had the "just do it" fortitude to respond to a sentiment that trickled through diaries on the Daily Kos: "I wish we could...." And now we can. For this we are blessed.

CIGNA’s Edward Hanway spends his holidays in a $13 million beach house in New Jersey. Meanwhile, regular Americans are routinely denied coverage for the care they need when they need it most.

I posted this yesterday, but it was late. This site is really worth taking a look at.

What if, just think about it, what if we had hundreds of thousands of people marching here, in every community, wearing red armbands...read for emergency, marching for healthcare reform.

Totally Unbelievable!!!!

by etherapy

This isn't a diary...this will be very short! I know, I know....

But, I want to alert you all to this. I logged into my Wells Fargo business account this morning and found a $8.00 fee I had never seen before...not a huge amount of  money, but in these times I am watching every penny.

I created this site after reading a heartbreaking post on DailyKos. My idea is to create a gathering place to network with other Kossacks and progressives, share job opportunities, services, resources, find and give support. My hope is that we will build real community here. Here you can create a blog, add discussions, start a group, add pictures of your kids and pets, and make it your place.

Jobs, Community and Social Networking

by etherapy

More often than we can bear, we see diaries where Kossacks are suffering. When we see these, we tend to respond with a lot of wonderful community energy. And a desire to be able to do more as a community and not simply as a political actions group. But then the diary scrolls away, and we rarely get to follow up, or we miss it altogether.

We already have many great jobs posted. See the Opportunities Availablesection on the site.

Our two week anniversary as a jobs and social networking community!I think about the nearly 2,400 users, almost 100 interest groups ranging from "Frugal Kossacks" to "Brain Zaps,"165 forums and more activity than Grand Central Station, it's hard to believe we're only two weeks old. I am amazed.

And jobs! We have jobs posted there from other DKos members!

You’ve heard how this community came to be – my starting this site after experiencing complete frustration reading diaries on DKos about people losing their jobs, homes and living with the fear of being totally out of control of their future. I had to do something. ...so I created this website. And then I found Allison - or, we found each other, and a poet joined our midst. And Allison began doing the nuts and bolts administering of the site, and our vision was enlarged.

Thanks to a recent diary  I was inspired to start a networking site for Kossacks.

It is my hope that it will provide a place to gather, network and share resources in these tough times.
