Caroline J had suggested this to me this morning, and it was something I had thought about a while back also, but never really knew how to implement. Now I have an idea of what I need to do. I guess it could be something like a mini-craigslist, but definitely more targeted towards our own Fijian community. I might try something over the weekend, and hope to do a trial run next week. What do you think?
wow....THANKS! This could be a great solution for those commuting from Sac to the Bay for work, Aunties needing a ride from job to church, activities or home on the weekend, folks needing a ride out of town. Could be a great service for those in our community who are non-drivers, long distance commuters, and spur of the moment adventurers looking for a one way ticket out of town :)
Vinaka Rupeni. I was also thinking about those Fijian families who move to the US, and would like all the help that they can get (esp. with FREE stuff). Most of us have a lot of stuff we do not need anymore, and these can easily be passed on to fellow Fijians who might need them. Thanks for the vote of support.......I'll continue working on that (now that the "privacy" feature is fixed).
Thanks for this absolutely good idea. Another suggetion is that this is done too for visitors going to NZ or Australia. Not only visitors, but for students who are coming through for courses for a number of years. I think the need will be great, and Fijian peope residing in these countries do not really mind helping out.
Instead of using hotels or squashing in with relatives abroad, why not have have house exchanges and advertise here. Say for instance a family wants to holiday in Australia for a couple of weeks, they advertise here that they would like to exchange homes with a family abroad who wish to holiday in their home. The two families can exchange homes for free or charge each other a nominal fee for coverage of utility and maintenance bills.They may even give each other use of their vehicles for a nominal sum!
