Anyone want this page to start posting again?

I ask because this was something I started when I was working for them as their webmaster. I was already on Google+...so it felt natural to do it. That relationship has since ended (in a good way) as they have no need for me creating the HTML pages anymore since their redesign. Because it ended other things took higher priority in my life, so I stopped posting their news. I asked Jim if he wanted me to continue posting for him as a volunteer...but I never got a response out of him about that. So I took that as him not really being interested in continuing it. It never became part of the spotlight of their social media efforts like Twitter and Facebook did.

I still keep in contact with Jim, the president of the organization, and I still receive all their news...so I can start posting it again. I just want to know that people here are interested in me doing so. I will be doing it as a volunteer if I do. If you REALLY want to see this active again, get in contact with Jim and tell him you want their presence on here. I'm sure I'll hear something from him if people do that.

For the record my main account here on G+ is +Derek Thorson

And let me be clear. I was once paid to be their webmaster (a small flat fee per month). I don't need or want that to resume...if I do this it will be solely as an unpaid volunteer. I just don't want to resume it without knowing that people value my contribution here.

edit: Jim wasn't the only reason why I stopped. I haven't seen anything from people who have been following this page since I stopped. If something is not missed when it is gone...why should it continue?

Gave it a week...but since you were the only one to speak up at all Ivan...I won't be continuing, sorry. I'll leave this up as a page up for people who happen to find it so that they can get linked to the active social media pages they maintain.

Because Everyone Deserves a Golden-Age
Introduction
Though this once served as the page for The Hero Initiative, due to lack of interest, I have ceased updating this page. I simply have other things that have to get done. I was willing to continue posting, but there was very little interest in me doing so. I still fully support the Hero Initiative, and I hope you do to. You can find them active on both Facebook and Twitter.

The Hero Initiative creates a financial safety net for comic creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. Since inception, the Hero Initiative has been fortunate enough to benefit over 40 creators and their families with over $400,000 worth of much-needed aid, fueled by your contributions! It's a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment
