My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Peace X Peace, Washington, DC, USA
Women of the world are passionately concerned about peace in our world but often feel there is nothing we can do and nowhere we can go.
It was in this mood that I sought out an organisation that would fulfill my ideas of peace and a place for women to take part in peacemaking at a grassroots level that would have impact on our communities and world.
Having spent many years working from the belief that peace begins with each one of us, I was delighted to come across Peace x Peace. Even if you did not know the organisation - the way peace is achieved is such a feminine way of doing things. It begins with collaboration, communication and deep respect of each other. These qualities appeal to women (and enlightened men) who wish to make a difference and they appealed to me. There are many ways you can be involved in Peace x Peace and there is one for you.
When I was creating the SMILEY CARDS in 2010 - a smile for peace (more details here www.melodyrgreen.com) I immediately thought of Peace X Peace. This year I am running a SMILE FOR PEACE campaign with the SMILEY CARDS - all proceeds from sales of the SMILEY CARDS will go to Peace x Peace. This is my way of creating a difference and letting people know about Peace x Peace. For me Peace x Peace is about inspiration - it is about inspiring me to take action and make a difference any way I can - this is mine.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Peace X Peace has enabled me to get clear about my contribution to peace and how I want to do this. Without the support of being able to read about the successes and make contact with the organisation I doubt I would have made the commitment necessary. Guiding lights are very important as we step into a brave new world. Thank you Peace x Peace for being one of these.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
ask all governments and world leaders be educated in the new way of creating peace and use these methods to focus on world peace and a sustainable eaarth.
