Year-Round Activities (Free & Fun)

Posted on: September 22nd, 2014 by jeni No Comments

Peace Campaigns, Peace Projects,
Peace Poetry, Peace Messages,
Peace Links, & Peace Certificates…

Activities and endeavors (many are free!)
filled with inspiration and information
for people of all ages, faith, and nationalities. 


Throughout each year, Mattie’s Foundation invites global citizens to participate in inspirational and informational activities and campaigns. Many of these endeavors grow from our annual and seasonal outreach activities. Participation is always free (though donations are always encouraged). 


Our goal in maintaining these year-round activities is to encourage global neighbors — around the block and around the world – to move from attitude to action with their peace choices, so that peace moves from being a possibility to becoming a reality.
