What Is the Difference Between the Our Trust and Endorsements Pages?


The Endorsements page is what is also sometimes called a testimonial page. The expectation of this page is for people or organizations to endorse The Transition in the following ways:

  • Share how they feel personally about The Transition.
  • Share how The Transition has personally impacted their life.
  • Explain why they recommend other people should get involved with The Transition.

The Trust page is an actual pledge The Transition Team is making to all of our supporters and Contributors and by adding your "virtual signature" you are acknowledging what we are pledging to you and in a sense holding us accountable to this pledge by also agreeing to the beneficiaries statement as we consider YOU and others like you a beneficiary of our work. See below the statement quoted from that page:

"Beneficiaries: I hereby agree to the following statement:

I will participate in the positive, inclusive decision making structure of The Transition and abide by the decisions made in my Contributorship to The Transition. I bring my integrity and commitment to the ideals of trust, respect, self-empowerment, cooperation, equal access to power, and non-violence. I am committed to the vision of diverse membership of The Transition and the site is considered a “Safe Zone".   I hereby agree to  treat everyone equal of value with differing gifts and Contribute for the good of all. I will attempt to minimize barriers to Contributors of any groups wishing to participate."
