There have been offers to help us out as well as questions about specifics of the company, in general, coming to us from the land o’ Facebook and our e-mail inbox. As we are in a fairly important phase of building the company right now, we still cannot give you the nitty gritty details of what the site will be like. What we can tell you is this: GbD is a for-profit company with a social conscience. We will have social networking aspects and there will be large amounts of content creation from both the users and GbD, encouraging measured growth and creativity.
Despite the fact that we can’t give you a whole lot of information, we CAN have you participate with us in fun projects! In fact, here is one project to start:
One of our greatest missions with our company is to demonstrate the varying experiences of teen girls throughout the globe. One way we’d like to do this is to capture responses to a specific set of questions asked to every teen who is interested in participating.
Welcome to the Official “Sexy 7” –AKA 7 questions to ask all (and by all we mean chiquitas). If you REALLY want to ask a chiquito, go ahead, but they probably won’t be included in any writing or video we create– no offense, boys.
We are going to create video materials that include your own answers! We massivly encourage girls between the ages of 13-19 to particpate. So in other words if you are 27, send us your responses but also ask a younger cousin to as well. PLEASE send your videos via http://www.yousendit.com using firstname.lastname@example.org as the delivery address. Yousendit will notify us once it’s uploaded to their servers. Please, please, please do not e-mail us the large video file(s) directly. We will explode. Writing? You can just e-mail.
Be sure to read our rules here… Yes, we do have a few:
Sexy 1: What do you think people perceive you as, and how different is it from how you perceive yourself?
Sexy 2: Which of your irrational fears seem to be the silliest?
Sexy 3: What is the most time-consuming activity you participate in?
Sexy 4: What is the greatest lesson you could learn (or have learned) from a child?
Sexy 5: If you could wave a magic wand and it would give you whatever you wanted right now, what would you ask for?
Sexy 6: What is the most beautiful moment you have ever experienced?
Sexy 7: What are you most grateful for?
So! Grab your camera or open your word processor or journal and tell us the answers to these questions! Send them to us and then get other ladies to join in!
