This is a story of 4 people: Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody
There was an important job to be done.
Everybody was asked to do it.
Anybody could have done it
but Nobody did it.
Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybodyâs job
Everybody thought Anybody could do it
But Nobody realized that Everybody wouldnât do it.
It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when actually Nobody asked Anybody
Leaves fall without noise, and then enrich the soil.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I’m just a facilitator, a catalyst of good vibes! When this catalyst met another good vibes, explosions, creativity, great moments, true connections are guaranteed! That’s why I encourage non-common initiatives and meaningful gathering in CS!
Trying to involve new members and less active members by welcoming people in CS website, in some gatherings, by hosting or surfing with them
This one is a dream: there are 11 members in Madagascar, 30 malagasy speaking people in couchsurfing. Try to raise these figures and may ... be translating CS in Malagasy?
Let growing up by itself after volunteering there for 9m (46 members on my arrival july 07).
Continuing to strengthen Couchsurfing community in Switzerland and let the entire world know the efficiency of true team-working there.
I hope The Couchsurfing Organization can help me enhancing this efficiency!
