Community Wire Features
Friends of Community Wire Service
| The Friends of Community Wire refers to anyone who wants to help
Community Wire (CWIRE) to maintain and improve
its services to the community. It's an easy no-obligation way to say "Good
job!" and let us know that you appreciate what we're trying to do. Just
by using CWIRE, you are already helping! But you can also help in
many other ways in the next 2 minutes!
Here's how to Join the Friends
What You Can Do to Help CWIRE
But if you don't want to build webpages, you can still help out in a big way without much effort! You can help us by spreading goodwill!
Here's the strategy: Volunteers build free webpages for nonprofits. Nonprofits help to find more volunteers to develop and exploit these free webpages (by posting contact information, events, fundraisers, volunteer opportunities, newsletters, etc.).
The Friends of CWIRE play a critical role in the success of this community partnership by "talking-it-up" -- helping to publicize and promote CWIRE in the community.
How You Can Help to Publicize CWIRE
If you're comfortable with writing HTML code, you can easily paste a link to CWIRE into your website!
Students, interns, and volunteer instructors are needed! By taking advantage of the many free programs offered by CWIRE and our sponsor-partners, you can help yourself and/or your organization while at the same time helping other local schools, churches, and worthy causes.
How CWIRE Can Help
About Community Wire Service
Nonprofit charitable groups and volunteers pay nothing to post information on CWIRE. CWIRE is financially supported through the generosity of our sponsors and contributors and the many Friends of Community Wire. It only takes a handful of commercial sponsors to cover the overhead costs of providing these free services to the whole community. CWIRE currently has no paid staff, and no advertising budget. We plan to transfer our content to independently-operated "regional portal sites." These community-sites will subscribe to the "wire service" and publish our content, keeping CWIRE's overhead costs low.

CWIRE supports local charities by 1) helping them to create and promote
independent websites, 2) promoting their events, 3) syndicating their newsletters and
press releases, and 4) recruiting volunteers and donors in the nearby Los Angeles area.
Please support CWIRE by advertising with us (or supporting those who do), by referring
new merchants, by sending us information to post, and by telling others about CWIRE.
