How Do I Get My Volunteers Involved in SL?

As a relative newbie in SL and NPC, I am still learning pretty much everything. I would love for my NP organization to have a presence in SL, however, I am relatively sure that I am the only member of my nonprofit that has an account. And while I am happy to do what I can to help out my org, I simply can’t be the only person supporting our presence. We are an all volunteer NP which adds to the challenge.

I would love to hear from more seasoned NPC members regarding how they were able to rally the troops and get them involved. My volunteers are just now getting Facebook profiles and blogging. And Twitter is light years away. How do you get your team over the initial shock or the virtual world and get them excited about helping? Have you recruited volunteers in-world? Please share your nuggets of wisdom.
