Mattie’s Peace Trees

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

An Annual Fall/Winter
Outreach Activity

Expressing peace – Mattie’s vision, your choice.


We share “Mattie’s peace vision” theme for the year. Participants are invited to express their vision of that peace theme in some way – artwork, photo expressions (of ornaments, people, places, artwork, and more). We provide simple step-by-step instructions for the activity. Then, we post all the submissions we receive — from individuals,  families, schools, and communities —  on our website. We gather all of your creative expressions together, and create one combined peace tree display that celebrates global peace. 


Annual activity posted on website the month of March.
Submissions received from
April 1 through April 30
(National Poetry Month)
will be eligible for prized, and
included on the global peace tree
will will be posted during May.-
Each display featured prominently
throughout the year it is created,
then it is moved to our
Year-round Outreach or Archived Activities” pages.

Thank you for your patience.
The 2015 & 2016 Peace Tree activity were “on hold” as
Mattie’s mom dealt with cancer treatments and complications.
This free global activity will resume during 2017, 
in its NEW TIMEFRAME — National Poetry Month (April).
