You're Invited to a Webinar

I'm sure most of us are very familiar with Wikipedia by now.  But Webopedia??  

There is such a site, and I came across it while looking for the definition of a Webinar.  Why was I looking for the definition, you ask?  

That's because our regional field organizer Robin Stephenson is hosting one of these events (to provide background about of 2010 Offering of Letters), and she would like to invite you to attend.  All you need is a telephone and a computer. 

Before I pass on the invitation, let me pass on the definition of "Webinar" from "Webopedia."

Short for Web-based seminar, a presentation
, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the Web.
A key feature of a Webinar is its interactive elements -- the ability to give, receive and discuss information. Contrast with Webcast, in which the data transmission is one way and does not allow interaction between the presenter and the audience.
Now to the details of  Robin's Webinar.

I especially participate in the webinar if you can't come to the Albuquerque Offering of Letters workshop on March 13. (And even if you're going to the workshop, you're welcome to join in on the webinar) 

New Mexico Webinar: 
Advocating Loaves and Fishes: Helping Families Make Ends Meet
Where: Your Phone and Computer
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM  
(Mountain Time)
Bridging the gap between low wages and life’s basic necessities like food, medicine, and housing is a struggle for hard working parents now more than ever. 

Bread for the World's 2010 Offering of Letters Campaign will focus on the erosion of income by supporting tax credits that help millions of American workers support themselves and their families.

At Bread for the World, our job is to make sure you have the tools to be effective anti-hunger advocates. This webinar is part of our effort to make Bread's resources more accessible to everyone. 

What is a webinar? Think of it as a conference call, but in addition to being on the phone, you'll be able to see the presentation we'll be doing on your computer at your home or office. Join us for this webinar and learn ways you and your friends, church and campus colleagues, and others can help reduce poverty and hunger.

Registration is free, and after you register, we'll send you simple instructions on how to participate using our toll-free conference call number and how to login online.

If you'd like to attend this event you can RSVP online
