This is the most crucial position and the one we need the most volunteers for, across the country. This involves you collecting the money we send you to go purchase food/supplies, giving out food, delivering supplies, working The961 tents at the location (when made available), etc.
You will be the main point of contact between The961 Foundation and the businesses, NGOs, and the general community.
Tasks for business liaisons will include any of the following: getting monetary donations for the foundation, negotiating better prices for things we will buy (water, juice, snacks, food, etc), requesting donations of things we can use and/or give out (water, snacks, etc). All to ensure we can maximize our funds.
Looking for volunteer writers to help us expand our coverage of the revolution. As well as anyone able to cover the Live News blog with minute by minute updates (which roads are blocked, which got cleared, etc.)
Volunteers with a great tech background able to help us come up with solutions and set up our tech needs, like the 24/7 live streams of the protest locations, or the wifi stations at the protest locations, etc.
Documenting the revolution is crucial. Photographers and videographers able to bring the message, stories, and images of the revolution from the streets to the internet are always needed.
#6 Social Media
Take part in bringing the revolution alive through social media – where it all began.
Live outside Lebanon but still want to support? You can help in many ways! The961 Foundation needs people around the world, particularly in cities with strong Lebanese communities. Among those could be organizing fundraising events to raise funds to support the foundation’s mission.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
