“Peace is possible…
it begins with a choice,
and grows through changes within,
and for our world.”

— Mattie J.T. Stepanek

-

Mattie’s Foundation is inviting
global neighbors of all ages
to make peace their choice –
and to commit to some
“Change4Peace.”

-

Did you know that it only takes about 21 days
to create or change a habit?
-

For our Summer 2016 “Make Peace the News”
outreach activity, we are inviting and encouraging
people of all ages and in all global spaces to
commit to and celebrate a #Change4Peace

Perhaps you will consider a change in some attitude or habit.
-
Perhaps you will choose to get to know your neighbors
around the block and around the world.
-
Perhaps you will challenge yourself to reach out
and support a person or community in need,
or get involved with supporting an organization
 that tends to basic needs, or hope, or peace.

-

It’s free.
It’s simple.
– – It’s Three Choices to a #Change4Peace

  1. Reflect & create
     –
    what #Change4Peace would you like, for you?

  2. Respond & commit
    commit to that #Change4Peace
    and move from attitude to action this summer.

  3. Reach out & celebrate
    with your #Change4Peace, for others & for our world!-

-

Peace is possible… choose peace!

-#Change4Peace.

-
Share your choice and change with us,
and we will post your Peace Message here
to celebrate your commitment and Change4Peace,
and so that it can inspire others.

-

We welcome written messages, photos, art, video…
any creative expression of your #Change4Peace

#Change4Peace - I am choosing peace in your honor. I will change my perspective to include those that I may not agree with. I will do something everyday that brings me peace and encourage others do the same. I am grateful for your legacy, and happy birthday.
Melissa Comeau (California, USA)

My peace choice is to love the people I do not understand. I may not agree with their choices, but I can always treat them with love and respect. #Change4Peace.

Dear Mattie — You did not just change my life with your message of peace, but you continue to influence my daily actions.  I have come to know you as a brother that I never met… I never knew what peace really meant beyond the perceptions of peace I got from the media and my community… my biggest takeaway (from your message is) that peace begins with me as an individual. Mattie, words are not enough to translate the respect and gratitude that I have for you.  I will promote your message in my deeds and my organization here in South Africa. Best regards,
  Takunda Ushe (South Africa)

I am full of peace. Now, how to spread it… I do pray for others to have peace within, as this is the greatest gift to me. My #Change4Peace: I will smile and make eye contact. Happy BD Mattie Stepanek – I know you’re around here somewhere :)  <3 <3 <3

My #Change4Peace is to be more optimistic – for myself and also around others.
Happy Birthday, Mattie!
