Dear Drupalists I need your help
Those who know me will be well aware that I am both a passionate cyclist. Last June I wrote a blog about cycling. It told the dreadfully sad tale of a cyclist who died close to my home following a road traffic incident. In just 24 hours the post had over 10,000 reads. Learning that 3,239 cyclists were killed or seriously injured (KSI) in 2015 UK alone triggered me to take positive action, the result is my campaign "BeyondACyclist" which now has backing and support from CyclingUK.
A totally volunteer effort (entirely inspired by my work with Drupal) BeyondACyclist has a groundswell of support and active participation from the likes of Three Degrees West film company, Cheshire Fire Service, Cheshire East Council, West Midlands Police, Christie Hospital, composer Brian Lane, script writer Craig Roderick (Southpaw Agency) and Phil Jones MBE Managing Director - Brother UK to name but a few. Plans are in advanced stages to produce an ambitious cinema quality short film, supporting studio portraits and action photography, social media campaign and distribution across a variety of mediums.
Why I am reaching out to you the Drupal community
Within the next few months we will have the film completed. But there is a final missing link. I need a website designed, built and themed to drive traffic towards. A site to serve as central focal point for all campaign activity. The place where all traffic will arrive be that from TV news, print media, social or offline. I cannot do all of this alone. I already have a lot on my plate!
I'm hoping someone in the Drupal community will be reading right now and feel this is a cause they would like to get involved with. Obviously Drupal 8, it will be high traffic as I have built excellent relations with media outlets including TV, print and social. And this is a global issue. In Ireland, across USA, Australia there are currently hot news stories about cycle safety and sadly more deaths. So don't think being outside the UK is a blocker, no.
I anticipate needing 2-3 individuals to complete the task - Designer, Site builder or Site builder and Themer (as separate roles). If you would like to discuss the idea further or are just plain interested in getting involved please use my contact form to reach me. And thank you in advance. Paul.
