New website on travel/culture needs your input

From the smart Asian American female I've been posting from. She has an announcement for the list. Feel free to write her if you have any questions or input.

Subject: (NAME), would love to get your help

Dear __:

My name is Karen Song and I recently graduated from Stanford (Human Biology '06!). Since college, I have traveled to several countries, launched two documentaries, and met a number of people with a wide range of unique and insightful perspectives that enriched my experiences. Inspired by what others have to share, I want to create a meeting place where people can come together to reflect on what's happening in our world.

I am launching a website to connect socially conscious people. This is a place where people can blog about issues that are most important to them, such as breaking news, commentaries on their social environments, cultural trends, travels - basically anything that makes them tick. This is also a place where people can come to better understand the nature of foreign countries, share videos, music, and photos, raise awareness about social causes, and simply converse.

I am writing to you specifically to ask if you could contribute your perspectives on countries of your interest. Knowing that you DO X,Y, Z, I feel that the meeting place would love to hear from you. Please feel free to email me a brief reflective writing piece on your time in COUNTRY X, or any relevant photos, multimedia items. You can check out the website at for a few ideas of what I'd like to have you be a part of.

"Globesarefun" is built to promote journalistic integrity, transnational communication, cross-cultural awareness and tolerance by giving people of the world an outlet to share their views and be heard. Again, it would be great to have you be a part of this. I look forward to seeing your input soon. Please feel free to call or email if you have any questions or comments.
