BENEFITING: META PEACE TEAM
EVENT DATE: May 27, 2011
Kim and Amy have been together so long (19 years!), we think you should celebrate it. In fact, we encourage you to donate as a way to further the good work we like to do and support in the world. If you want to be supercute, you could give in increments of $19, $38, $190. Either way, everyone will feel loved and supported. Thanks!
Michigan Peace Team is the organization we have stayed with the longest. That, or they keep following us. One way or the other, we’ve done some great stuff together over the years. While Kim and Amy play more of a consulting role at the moment, MPT continues to do fantastic work against huge odds. Nonviolence trainings for anybody and everybody, domestic Peace Teams in North America, exploratory human rights missions along the US-Mexican border and an inspiring commitment to a long term presence in the West Bank (Palestinian-Israeli conflict) are just some of the ways they stay busy. They are also very generous with materials and support for others wanting to follow their example.
So they look all huge and impressive but really it’s still pretty shoe-string and duct tape behind the scenes. They stretch donations to a ridiculous degree. We happen to know it can get pretty stressful and these people don’t need more stress. They volunteer to get yelled at as it is.
