We're searching for volunteers. Volunteering has been shown to improve not only your health but also your hope.
An Active Member is one who has subscribed or who volunteers to post. An Inactive Member is one who has not subscribed or posted in the last thirty days and is therefore restricted to guest privleges of access to the site until such time as the member becomes active again and posts. Any SUBSCRIBED member is not restricted to post within thirty days. Volunteer Active Members may waive the subscription fee if they post at least once a month. If you want to have your membership as a volunteer active member and have the subscription fee waived use the fill out this form. If you are an inactive member mention when filling out the form to volunteer that you are already registered with the RRDi but have become inactive so we can activate your membership to post.
Some rosaceans tend to center themselves on their own skin issues resulting in a spiral into reciprocal deep depression with a tendency to isolate themselves. Volunteering breaks this cycle. It forces a rosacean into seeing that there are others out there with even more severe cases of rosacea than what they are experiencing. Helping a fellow rosacea suffer is worth every effort you can muster. The satisfaction of volunteering as a rosacean for other rosaceans is only experienced if you take the step to offer yourself willingly as a RRDi volunteer rosacean.
Could you seriously consider volunteering for the RRDi? We are appealing to millennials to think about helping others with rosacea through our non profit organization so we can keep this web site on the internet with its wealth of information on rosacea. If some don't step up to the plate and volunteer the RRDi may eventually close up shop. Seriously, do you want to see this organization cease? The statistics globally show that volunteering is dropping (read this post). Then read below why you are needed.
An Active Member is one who has posted within the last thirty days and has full access to the RRDi website. An Inactive Member is one who has not posted in the last thirty days and is therefore restricted to guest privlieges of access to the site until such time as the member becomes active again and full access to the site is restored. Any SUBSCRIBED member is not restricted to post within thirty days. Volunteer Active Members may waive the subscription fee.
If you would like to volunteer by simply joining our cause adding you name to our list and do nothing more that is the easiest way to volunteer. At the very least join the RRDi to increase our membership and if that is all you can do we understand and appreciate whatever you can do. Your email address is all we require to join. Our goal is to reach 10,000 members. And we are a grassroots, non profit organization.
If all you can do to volunteer is post on our website, that is probably the best thing you can do. Just post and show you care about other rosacea sufferers. Your experience with rosacea may inspire others to join our cause. Two Steps to Volunteer.
Where have all the rosaceans gone? Social media. So, if you prefer Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Reddit or any other social media rosacea PRIVATE group, why not join the RRDi and be a moderator for the RRDi Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Reddit groups? That way you can still be in your favorite platform and be a volunteer for the RRDi. We need moderators for our RRDi social media rosacea groups as volunteers.
