Welcome to Douglas's site. This is where we can stay in touch with Douglas and how he's doing and help organize our efforts to support him. This page will serve as your home base for rallying the troops, receiving updates, etc. Here's the plan:
Your First Step: Please take 30 seconds to click on the "Follow" button on the top right of this page. This will allow you to receive updates and read journal entries and help with week-to-week needs if you're local. Though not mandatory to follow Douglas, to be able to post photos, leave comments and sign up as a helping hand on the Calendar page you will need to create an account. Feel free to upload a photo of yourself to your profile so we can get to know and recognize each other. After clicking “Follow” above, read on to learn more about what you can do to help.
Journal: This tab is where you can read the latest entries posted from Douglas and his support team. Using the Journal will help alleviate pressure for him to respond to individual inquiries and offers and expedite information sharing. Each post is followed by the name of the author of the entry. You can reply to any journal entry, or click on the name of its author to send a private message.
Posts: This is where you can leave messages for Douglas.
Calendar: This will be an especially helpful section for locals. It is an up-to-date calendar that will list immediate needs such as rides, meals, etc. If you see a need posted and can fill it, please sign up through the calendar page directly (i.e. not through private communication) to let us and others know that you've committed to that need. Please check back often to help out with the most recently posted needs.
Notifications: After clicking “Follow” above, you’ll then see a tab to manage “Notifications”. If you feel you’re receiving too many or too few email notifications, please check this section to tailor notifications to your areas of interest, for example, if you want to receive journal updates but not new calendar posts.
Don’t Forget! If you haven’t done so already, please click “Follow” on the top right.
