Help The Democratic Republic of Congo and Somalia’s Children
CARES work around the world assisting survivors of disaster and war is life saving. CARE has joined Students Rebuild and the One Million Bones Project. The goal of this project is to cover the National Mall in Washington, D.C., with 1 million handmade bones – a visual petition against violence and conflict around the world.
In CARE’s Action Alert issued today, Students Rebuild is challenging young people worldwide to make bones in honor of lives lost and in solidarity with survivors of ongoing conflicts in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Somalia. Each bone – made from materials including clay, newspaper or cardboard – will result in a $1 donation, up to $500,000, to CARE in support of their work in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Somalia both which have a long history of turmoil and conflict.
You can help improve the quality of life worldwide. According to CARE’s Action Alert, on April 28, 2012, simultaneous bone-laying demonstrations will take place in state capitals across the country. You can demonstrate your support of CARE’s work in war torn countries by taking part in an event in your state, hosting your own event, or sharing this call to action. Toward that goal, please visit Students Rebuild now to access all of the tools and resources you need to take part on April 28 and beyond. Your participation will truly make a difference.
With an equal amount of conscience mind, heart, and collective action, we can improve the human condition.
