What CAN YOU do?

United States President John Fitzgerald Kennedy said, half a century ago: “And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.”

Waska.org members like the word “DO”. Concrete, constructive actions can be very motivating once you’ve had a taste of it. Also, feeling useful and needed builds your dignity.

Yes, dignity is something you build. You can also restore it, strengthen it, promote it. It is also possible to see your dignity corrode, fade or collapse when you enter a lifestyle where you end up feeling useless and incapable.

Members ask: “What can I do to contribute to Waska.org?” They want to be part of the action, the party. They want to proudly show they can make a difference. They want to see their input to society’s dynamic growth be taken seriously and seen as important by their peers in the community. That wish is shared by benevolent Humans.

Waska.org answers to the many Tweets and emails. Here’s a preview while I’m preparing an “official” page.


“Doing” is what Waska.org does best. Doing is also the members’ motivation to join the team. The expression “what can you do?” has a whole new meaning in our workshops. I can do what I learn as I’m learning it.

Neat, huh?
