Have you ever wondered what it would be like to advocate for your cause, favorite charity, church or group?? I have. There is this need in me to give back to this great country, community that has given so much to me and my family. This great country provided an opportunity to finish higher education, grow up safe, finish higher education, get married, have a family and make sure that all of them are just as lucky as I am.
So, I’m working on finding out what I want to support in the community. I have been working on two websites that mirror my interests so far: Go-Boomers and Best Future Lawyers. Both are up and running and offering free information on their respective fields. My idea is to focus on the Boomer generation, people who are about to retire and need help in getting the right information to make things easier as they retire and do what they want to do with the rest of their lives.
The website is a portal for information; the brick and mortar should be a non-profit that provides training and support to make older people self-sufficient in this new world of the internet and global technology at your fingertips. My idea is to provide classes, training, resources and encouragement to older people who don’t know technology and how to use the web. I think there’s a sweet spot for providing that kind of training with support from other foundations who are supporting this same vision.
The need is there as we have about 76 million boomers retiring in the next 6 years and not all of them are computer or internet savvy. That is where we come in, we can train them to use computers, the internet to get the information they need, stay in touch, take web classes, learn new skills and stay connected. We can start small and grow it as the resources allow. We would need a skeleton staff but we help help in getting the right people, the right resources to make sure this project not only gets launched but stays active for a long time to come.
I can’t save the whole world but I can save my little corner of the world. I want to focus on my age group.
What is your cause??
