Grassroots HealthCare: Our Best Ideas

Our Gems (on the tabs above) are the best of what we have done together as a group We recognize that Our Agreements, Our Ideas, Our Insights, Our Questions, and Our Issues are fundamentally important.

* They encapsulate much of the difference between where we started and where we are today.
* They represent our evolution as a workgroup capturing what we have accomplished and lighting the way toward what we have yet to do.
* They inform and inspire our creativity.
* They map the terrain we have covered together. Good when we get lost.
* They are our memory when we need to remember.
* They are our collective identity describing something of who we are as a group.

We collect "Our Gems" at our own discretion for the benefit of the group. We do this not only to record important information. Most of all, we do this because by choosing collaborative interaction we become the whole that is greater than the sum of our parts.

I think it would be cool to open the GRHC checking account with a donation check from someone. Who knows who it is yet, but I like the idea of someone handing you a check and saying please make this happen. On the other hand, if we have to cough it up ourselves, perhaps I can deal with that.
