With this issue of e-Volunteerism we start our second year of publication. It was our intent - from the beginning - to publish something of value to colleagues anywhere in the world. We wanted to engage contributors and readers from as many countries as possible, representing a wide array of settings. Volume I did indeed offer the thoughts of volunteerism leaders in over twenty different countries (and all continents). Perhaps the most exciting capability of the Internet is simultaneous access to materials (allowing for some difference in server updating). No matter where you live on this planet, when e-Volunteerism goes online, you can read it at the same moment as everyone else.

With these successes have also come challenges, many of which we didn't anticipate, some of which illustrate the difficulties of being truly international.
