Hi Caroline,

GK was one of the organizations that we've discussed with a few months
ago via a subgroup called the Singles For Christ in a local community
here. However, discussions didn't prosper much because of the various
events that happened lately. If there's still some focus on their part
with this for next year, could be interesting to jump start
discussions again.
