Thank you to Zoom.us for the wonderful post. Besides the quality of the Zoom.us video conferencing platform, it's the people that work at Zoom that makes you want to partner with them and use the product.
From the CEO on down they always respond, and are happy to explain new features. CEO Eric Yaun despite being so busy gives of his time to be a VPW Board Member. 
Virtual Photo Walks is all about people giving the gift of time to others by doing a Virtual Photo Walks for the people living with disability or illness.
So if you say your to busy you might hear me mutter "get over yourself" the audio in zoom is excellent. Give a little bit of time to someone you will feel better for it.You can volunteer, or if living with disability sign up at www.virtualphotowalks.org to be invited.

Virtual Photo Walks at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Virtual Photo Walks was on the big screen at Shriners Hospital Honolulu with Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Rangers Dean Gallagher, Jessica Ferracane, and Stephen Geiger at  https://youtu.be/13t0F7hwoZg https://www.nps.gov/havo/planyourvisit/craterrimtour_kilaueaovrlk.htm. We walked into the Kīlauea caldera wish is spectacular. The caldera (a very large crater formed by collapse) is about 2 miles wide and more than 3 miles long. 
Stay tuned for more exciting Virtual Photo Walks from Hawaii.
We walked this walk thanks to Verizon and the 4G LTE Jetpack Mobile Hotspot.

Hello, my name is Thomas, I am 19 years old, and I have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Unfortunately, my disability has rendered it impossible for me to play video games until now. You see, I found a video game controller that I can use with my mouth, which is unfortunately the only way I can do anything. It would mean the world to me if I was able to get the funds to pay for it. I will be so grateful to anybody who donates and helps me realize my dream of getting back into gaming.
