We are excited to engage with our rapidly growing Grid Creator Community!

..several months ago..

When we started out, the idea of Public grids was mainly to give our users a way to experience the power of the Grid.

Our community then, just a handful of people, spent several hours / weeks creating Grids on topics we thought would be interesting.
We picked a set of varied topics like Movies, Restaurants, Menus and more.

It was not long before we realized that Public Grids and could impact many more people, and in significant ways.

This soon became a concrete belief as we saw people from the community step forward to help our mission by Creating Public Grids, and led to term “Grid Creators

Grid Creators, work voluntarily with one specific aim, that the Public Grid they create will truly help Save a Life and Make Life Simple for people trying to Save Lives.

Grid Creators need to be recognized for the Great Work! they do for Public Good.

What better way to do that, than to Honor their effort with a token of appreciation.
