Our every waking hour and every spare dime we can scrape together are given to the effort to bring the simple act of looking to the world. Please join us with whatever you can afford, no matter how little.
When you realize the profound effect this simple act of looking at yourself is having in your own life, it is natural to want to share it with people everywhere.
There is one really useful and important way for you to help make this happen. Join our growing team of talented and motivated volunteers.
Being a part of a team, sharing experiences, working together with people who live all over the world to develop the ways and means to bring sanity to the rest of humanity also provides deep support and encouragement.
Why volunteer? A report from a volunteer.
We are seeking volunteers in many areas to help us bring the act of looking at yourself to the world. There are many different ways to support this work. We can really use your help.
All work is done remotely, via the Internet. Our communications will be mostly by email, chat or video conference.
You can help us no matter where you live, if:
You are a certified accountant with experience in nonprofit accounting in the United States and and willing to donate a few hours a month to:
1. Review our books;
2. Help us prepare annual reports to the IRS and the State of California.
You are an experienced video director/editor and willing to donate a few hours of work to help us finalize a 4-minute video that we have been working on, with the goal of presenting our work to a wider audience.
You are a professional publicist willing to donate a few hours every month to help us promote our work and work on getting some TV and radio interviews for John.

You are an experienced non-profit fundraiser willing to work with us to find the best organizations and foundations from which to seek grants, and work with us on writing and submitting grant proposals.
You are an experienced English translator willing to translate some of our texts into your native language. Excellent writing skills in your native language and advanced proficiency in American English are a must.
You are an experienced subtitler who can work online. You'll use the tools available at the free website Amara.org to produce subtitles that will be uploaded for review by us before they are posted online:
1. You will transcribe audio from video files in English and create subtitle files;
2. You will create subtitle files from foreign language translations of audio from video files in English.
All this work is currently done by John and Carla. Having qualified and dedicated volunteer help in these areas would free up a substantial amount of our time, allowing us to focus more on other aspects of our operation, such as writing and speaking with people.
