). If you're not able to make a donation at this time, please take a moment to learn more about what they do -- and, if you're inspired, please pass along this request. There is a specific time frame involved... so please help out however you can.
Thanks, and Dream On!
We are asking every Peace Day supporter to consider donating to the International Day of Peace Cause on Sunday, November 1 to support our efforts to be awarded Facebook Causes' daily $1000 prize, given to the organization who is supported by the most individual donors (minimum $10) in one day.
On November 1, join us in making a $10 donation to Pathways To Peace, through our Facebook Cause, so that we can continue to make the case to millions of people about the International Day of Peace. We've already received a dozen commitments to donate! This year, we received the support of more than 15,000 people on Facebook, while the Events calendar was filled with close to 700 events from people around the world.
Peace Day was marked on hundreds of millions of calendars worldwide by Pathways to Peace volunteer Melvin Weiner. Tens of thousands of people watched the 24 Hour Peace Day Global Telecast online, which we assisted with in partnership with the Unity Foundation. With your assistance we can continue maintaining and upgrading the International Day of Peace website. For 2010 we would like to make it multi-lingual and make it truly accesible to the global community! We would also like to expand our online media efforts to teach more people why Peace needs to be our priority, every day of the year!
November 1 is the longest day of the year because we turn the clocks back for daylight savings. How about people spending part of that time donating, or telling friends about us? Many Pathways To Peace volunteers spend their own money on expenses such as travel to the UN (or other events), printing needs, etc. We receive no government or UN funding and rely heavily on the contributions of donors like yourselves.
