We need one more brick!!

 Dear ROIers!

In a few days, we will be putting toghether 30 young jewish leaders in the first Connectors Gathering. 

Mixing hands-on work with theoretical and practical components such as project development, content, skills, training and networking, each attendee will also participate in a larger service project – the building of an entire home for an underprivileged family! 
We invite you to support our dream by donating a symbolic brick for the home that we will build together. The life of a family will be forever changed, and you will have their undying gratitude. Please consider contributing to our 
Indiegogo Campaign that will directly fund the construction of a lucky family’s new home! igg.me/p/190176

UPDATE - ROI will now match the raised funds at a ratio of $1:$1! Any dollar that is donated will be worth twice the original amount! Our campaign will close on Friday, October 19, so we are hard pressed to meet this deadline and double our charitable gift.

Look at the picture below, and just click there to donate!
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!igg.me/p/190176

Esther's Fall Schedule

Greetings, everyone...some of the 2011ers don't know me as well as the ROIers from previous years, but I wanted to reach out to all of you together, to share with you my fall travel schedule, and hoping that I'll be able to see as many of you as possible over the next few months.

I'm based in Los Angeles, so I hope many of you will consider visiting us here. The weather's lovely most of the time and there's lots to do. You may have even heard that there's an entire movie industry here! Well, I can't get you a walk-on role on any TV shows, but there's other stuff. So let me know when you're due here!

September 15-20 I'll be in San Francisco/Berkeley area, for Opening the Dor on Monday night September 19, where I'll be co-presenting with Sarah Lefton and perhaps seeing many of you Bay Area people. Check it out and RSVP here: https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=264581633554798   

October 12-16, will be in Fair Lawn, NJ for Sukkot with my family. If any of you needs a place for a Sukkot meal, feel free to speak up. I may try to get into NYC on Sunday before flying out at night, but am not sure yet.

November 4-8 brings me to Denver, CO for the Jewish Federations of North America General Assembly. If any of you are planning to be there, do let me know so I can make sure you know about some of the cool social and professional content that will be happening there.

And in December, I'm trying to go to London again - not sure for how long, but will at least be there the 13-18.

So that's it for right now, but hoping some of you will reach out to say hey and keep me updated on your exciting projects...

Love from Los Angeles,
Esther (esther@roicommunity.org)

The book came out from DC comics/Vertigo in November and it just sold out its first print run. The paperback will be available in August from Amazon and bookstores:


If you want to order a hardcover copy from me with a sketch inside, you can paypal me at sarahglidden@gmail.com and I'll send it to you. Its $25 but please add $10 for shipping if youre not in the US or Canada.
