Purpose: To help make the world a better place for all life on board.
How: By making small changes to systems or processes that are bothering us.
Why: We all seem to have something that frustrates us, that if only a small change
were made, things would be a lot better. That's what this site is about. People will list
what is frustrating them and the members will decide if they want to work on fixing that
frustration. Click on 'The Challenges' tab on the left side of this page to see what is
The Inspiration: "While in the midst of an around-the-world trip in 1991, I ended up
in the small town of Buena Vista, Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico was an unplanned stop
and Buena Vista was a place I was not supposed to be. In fact when Puerto Ricans
outside of Buena Vista looked in my travel notebook and electronic organizer and
saw all of the people who had signed their names and written some words with the
name of their town 'Buena Vista' beside them, they didn't believe I had actually been
to Buena Vista - because if I had I would surely have been dead right now.
Truth is though, I had been to Buena Vista and it was in Buena Vista that I was
'struck' by an epiphany. Everyone in Buena Vista treated me kindly and everyone
was excited to meet me - which was the total opposite of where I had been previously
- the resort of Palmes del Mar. The epiphany had to do with keys. Lots of them.
And this organization is one of the 'keys' of my epiphany that will lead us to a better
world. My only regret is that it has taken 15 years to get things started."
Issues: The intention of this organization is to address issues that bother the
majority of us as decided by the voting members. We will attempt to do so without
crossing into religious or political issue. The appropriateness of 'challenges' will also
be determined by the voting members. If we find that there are many political issues
to address then that will become the start of a new 'key' and a new and separate
