Mattie’s Peace Tree & Poetry

-

-

Winter Outreach Activity

=============

-

Peace is for all people.

And, peace is possible —

if individually and collectively,

we choose to make peace something

that matters for ourselves

and for our world.

– 

Each year, Mattie’s Foundation
plans a winter outreach activity.

-

Our goal is to encourage global neighbors
– around the block
  and around the world –
 to talk about peace,
and to participate in
an international activity from
wherever they are in the world.
-

For our Peace Tree & Poetry activity,

participants create global peace ornaments

and global peace tree displays.

We gather your photos of all those materials together,

and create one combined display that

celebrates global peace.

-
The outreach activities we plan are
always based on our theme for the year.
-

And, the activities are free,

they are fun, and

they are for people of

all ages and religions and nationalities.

Participating in our annual “Mattie’s Peace Tree & Poetry”
activity is simple –people around the world just
DECORATE, DISPLAY, and SHARE (Peace Tree)
and/or
RECORD, TRANSLATE (optional), and SHARE (Peace Poetry).

That’s it!

-
We post this creativity
– all the ornaments, and the poetry videos and translations –
on our website, in a global celebration of peace!
