Upload your own article! Bulletin, bye for now..

Friends,

as you can read from the results of the board meeting concerning Loesje International's web presence, we have decided to share news and updates in a form different from the Bulletin. One reason is to make the web site more interactive. We also believe it is better to focus on each article like this, rather than focus on one entity, which was the Bulletin. As the texts will be shared on Facebook too, they will reach a bigger crowd. Read more here: http://www.loesje.org/news/4238
