Share Your Voice Online: Adopt a Site
The More Good Foundation has just offered a new way to help members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints share their voice online and have a positive impact on the content that honest seekers find when they google information about Mormons.
The foundation is offering you the chance to "adopt" one of their existing Web sites in an area that you might have an interest. For example, if you have a great interest in single adult life, Mormon youth activities, German food, the Frankfurt Germany mission, the arts, or student life, the More Good Foundation is willing to create a Web site around those themes and let you manage it to share your thoughts, photos, videos, and posts about that topic.
The fact that you are a Mormon doing this means that people who visit the site will automatically learn more about who we are as a people, our diversity, and our varied interests. This can often lead to further interest in our faith and serves in a significant, yet simple way to dispel misperceptions that are otherwise prevalent on the Internet and in the media about us. You can share your interests online and be an influence for good.
If you decide to adopt a site, the foundation will design and host the site and then train you how to upload content, photos, videos, and posts. It can be an individual or group project. All you need to know is how to type and have an interest in a particular topic that you would like to share online as a Mormon in a positive, non-preachy way.
If you are interested, please contact Karen at the More Good Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
