What About Peace? Banner
Dear Supporter,

For six years, What About Peace? has attracted youth ages 14-20 years old to creatively answer the question: ‘What About Peace?‘. It has collected submissions from all over the United States and a few from the rest of the world. 

As the artwork collected over the years we thought it could do more for peace out in the world than stacked in the office.

This October, a Global Exchange Reality Tour was heading to Haiti and graciously agreed to bring five of our favorite What About Peace? paintings to a school in Haiti.

The Reality Tour was welcomed by Rea Dol, the Director and Co-Founder of SOPUDEP, the Society of Providence United for the Economic Development of Petionville, which runs education projects in the outskirts of Port-au-Prince. The schools are still recovering after the January 12, 2010 earthquake that destroyed Port-au-Prince and killed more than 300,000 people.

Reality Tour participant, Andrea Broad reported back from the visit:

“The kids really marveled at the whole concept and responded to the paintings, sketches and photos. I read them each of the artists’ names and where they were from. They asked several questions, but were otherwise shy about saying much…Two days later we went back to the SOPUDEP School, and one young man already had completed an entry.”

Help us send more messages of peace to schools around the world by making a donation to the program. For $10 we’ll send you beautiful blank note cards. Take a look and order a set for yourself and your friends.
