    Congratulations Jim,
    May I suggest TripIt for those wanting to follow you and others in your organization around the world with your great cause.

    Thanks, Shelley! (tripit.com) I have heard of this site, but checked it out at CrunchBase to be sure: “TripIt is an intelligent travel organizer that helps do-it-yourself travelers manage their travel plans so that their trips go more smoothly. Travelers simply forward their purchase confirmation emails to TripIt and TripIt automatically creates master itineraries with travel plans and other critical information. With TripIt, it’s easy for travelers to print or access their trip plans from anywhere–and to share itineraries and travel calendars with friends in their TripIt network.” (http://www.crunchbase.com/company/tripit). – Jim
