I have found a solution which will make it easier for modelers to get help in their local area, and an easy method that allows providing and offering help to others in this hobby. The idea is quite simple and it uses an online map program that is available to everyone.

But the problem I find now is how to make sure volunteers and beginners know about it. Some suggested contacting the LHSs, but I'm not sure how I can do that.
Any ideas on how I can spread the word to reach as many newcomers as possible and to anyone looking to volunteer? I have thought about the forums, but there really is no one central place that everyone looks at.
