Dear Rick,I'm delighted to announce that the new OneLeap site – recently mentioned in the Independent, StartupTV and chosen for the prestigious Unreasonable Institute – is now live and already creating fantastic connections, each also helping a great charity.
OneLeap enables anyone who signs up to get through to any professional contact, and get a guaranteed reply. OneLeap is also a filter for busy people, like you, ensuring you only hear from the best. And it does all this while raising money for your favourite charity.
Unlike social networks, OneLeap doesn’t play games with you, or ask you to tell the world where and how you spent your last 30 seconds. It’s not another daily duty. When you need to, it's a tool that enables you to make direct contact, on good terms, with hard-to-reach people. And if you receive OneLeap messages, you’ll get good messages, on your terms.
I'm asking for a simple favour. As a platform that connects all sorts of people, we've got to get in front of as many people as possible, as quickly as possible! So I'm asking the people who I most respect, who others respect, to help spread the word.
You can help OneLeap become the standard by which high-end, responsible business communication happens.
And you can help in as small or large a way as possible – be it a quick tweet or Facebook post or an email to your colleagues/friends/network.
I can't thank you enough for anything you can do to help.
Best wishes and enjoy using OneLeap!

3. Send a charming email to a few friends
A big ask, but don't knock me for trying. Why not email your friends/network telling them about us?
Or, for the really particular, set an automatic email response to improve your inbox
Here’s one our members are using
I’m now using OneLeap to help me prioritise messages from people I haven’t met. Please send me a message at http://oneleap.to/yourname
To send me a OneLeap message, you have to put down a small fee. This helps me sort serious people from the hundreds of time-wasters in my inbox. When I reply, the money goes Arms Around the Child, the fantastic charity I support – never to me. If I don't reply in 10 days, you'll get a 100% refund.
Why I use OneLeap
I don't have time to properly consider all the messages I receive each day from new people. Even if you're someone I really should be paying attention to, the chances are your email (one in a big pile) won't get the attention it deserves. I want to be open to new people, with great ideas and proposals. OneLeap lets me do this effectively – and give better responses to you – if you're serious.
