Will you give today to help ensure our Group continues to develop and flourish throughout 2021?

Since Arik set up our Group on 21 March 2020, its popularity has grown rapidly and we currently have a fantastic Community of more than 600K Members who take us on journeys to their corners of the world. We are very proud of how far the Group has come and we are so happy that more and more people can be part of our Community and benefit from the beauty, comfort, and happiness that the Group adds to our lives!

A news article broadcast on US Television interviewing Arik, our Community’s Creator, Project Manager & Moderator, shortly after our beautiful Group was created in March 2020.

Arik’s interview on the “Fore Yore Lore” Podcast, The interview includes many interesting stories about our Community, its birth, benefits, values, vision and strategy, as well as the tremendous Admin effort and work that has been required behind-the-scenes. It also discusses some of Arik’s interesting personal life stories.

“This site has been both an inspiration and a respite… It has been uplifting to see the words of love and friendship, of sympathy and encouragement, of faith and hope, shared with those we know only through this medium. It restores a faith in goodness, a hope for unity, and an aspiration toward peace. Thank you… all.”

Update: Our Crowdfunding efforts for 1 January – 30 June, 2021, were successful and we were able to meet our goal! Thanks to you all, together, we kept the window open! To help us keep momentum, we have relaunched the Campaign, focusing now on the second half of the year.

Why do we fundraise?

The Group requires a vast amount of work and time spent behind the scenes.

If we want our Group to keep loyal to its loving nature and quality standards, an essential need of our activity is to always have a Moderator on-shift. This is vital to running our Group with success.

Without dedicated Admin work, we would find that spam, violence, negativity, controversy and disturbing photos would dominate our feed. As such, our goal is to have sufficient manpower and budget for Content Moderation. In addition, since its creation, our Admin work has required the services of a Project Manager, Virtual Assistant, Website Developer, Graphic Designer, Translator and Fundraising Leader.

Our Admin Team works hard to ensure content posted to the Group upholds the values of love, peace and togetherness that our Community holds dear. We provide the services which enable the Project to run.

Our Community is ever-growing. New Members are joining daily. We are in great need of ongoing support to ensure the successful continuation of this Group throughout 2021.

“Wow! … I had no idea how much goes into this group. Your work is appreciated. Thank you… ”

Janet, USA

“… Arik, what you have done here is an incredible thing – uniting people across the world and creating the facility to see the incredible, dramatic, beautiful and calming views that people have from their homes. This page is addictive in the best possible way and is doing so much to promote togetherness and restfulness…”

Admin Team’s Tasks and Responsibilities

You’ve been asking what the Admin Team of our Group does on a daily basis, and also what tasks and responsibilities are involved in running a Project of this size.

It is the continuous day-and-night effort of our Team, together with your great participation, that maintains our Group’s loving nature and makes it such an amazing achievement. To keep this Project alive requires hard work of Moderation, Management and Development. But hey, what do we actually do?

We have prepared a series of articles which addresses the daily tasks and responsibilities of our Group’s Admin Team. In these posts we will provide you with an overview of the different aspects and elements of our Team’s daily duties:

Donations are accepted with lots of love and are vital to keep the Project alive. To those who don’t want to donate, or are unable to, it is fine. We love you too! Nobody should feel obliged and everyone is welcome here. However, without the funds necessary to sustain the work of our dedicated Admin Team, the Project will unfortunately be unable to continue. Every penny helps and is accepted with many thanks.

As always, Friends, we are doing our very best here to make it happen, for the highest good of all concerned, with what we can, while we can, until we can know better. We know that you too, are doing the same.

Would you like to keep the window open?

Heartfelt thanks to those of you who have already given!

We are doing our very best to keep the Group alive and the window open. With your support, we can do it! We like to stay positive and optimistic. However, if we’re not able to reach the Fundraiser’s goal, our Admin Team will evaluate the situation and make a decision about the future of the Group. Without the funds necessary to sustain the work of our dedicated Admin Team, the Project will unfortunately be unable to continue. At that point, Admin may have to decide whether to run the Group only through a part of 2021 (during a period that corresponds to the ratio between the amount raised and the Fundraiser’s goal), or to bring commercial ads into the Group, or make changes with relation to Admin’s tasks and functionalities, or any other sustainable solution, in order to keep the situation viable. We really want our Project to continue being the success that it has been, and for this we need your help! As always, Friends, we are doing our very best here to make it happen, for the highest good of all concerned. Thank you for being part of our Community’s journey.

With love, keep it kind, and stay safe.
