The Sharing is ostensibly a Boy Scouts-type organization for all ages and genders, but is actually a place where Yeerks acquire hosts. It was created by Visser One in the body of Lore David Altman and was run by Chapman during the series. Using propaganda techniques, the organization creates an environment that encourages thinking selflessly in an attempt to nurture voluntary hosts. After observing the development of a human member, they allow them a chance to be a "full member" which promises a life-changing experience. They give the human a speech about giving up a part of yourself to help others, and then infest them hoping they will accept it.
