Mattie’s Champions 2012

Posted on: January 5th, 2013 by jeni No Comments


In 2012, the Foundation Board launched Mattie’s Peace Club – a membership program with levels for children, teens, adults, VIPs, and Messengers (sponsors). A special component was added as a free option for the Peace Club Teens, to support young people in moving from “attitude to action.” The Pathways to Peace Program was expanded to include a Peace Certification component for individuals, families, schools, businesses, communities, leaders — anyone who wants to “reflect, respond, and reach out” with peace. New posters and inspiration cards were also added to the Pathways to Peace materials in our Peace Shop. In addition, a free international 2012 Peace Tree activity was offered, resulting in more than a thousand peace ornaments being contributed by people of diverse ages, faiths, and abilities who live on SIX continents! These are just a few highlights of the programs and activities Mattie’s Foundation was able to offer in 2012 because of our Champions. Thank you to all of our Champions who support the Foundation, and the mission to spread Mattie’s message of hope and peace for our world.
