Here we are interested in knowing why you want to help, what you would like to do, how you plan to do it: contacts you have, possible venues, estimated amount of people etc. So, this is a space for you to also add or tell us about different ideas you have to stay engaged with the organization regardless the possibility of organizing PIPO, for example linking your organization with ours, helping us in a specific area of your expertise, organizing periodic online meditation sessions, etc.
