BENEFITING: Planting Peace
Our neighbors at the Westboro Baptist Church have announced their intention to protest the funeral of David Bowie. They have also tweeted horrible, hurtful messages to his wife Iman in her time of grief, condemning him to hell and telling her she needs to "repent". In keeping with our philosophy of addressing acts of hate and intolerance with compassion and love, we are inviting the public to show their respect and support of a man who was not only a brilliant, transcendent artist and entertainer, but a man who lived his life as a role model for individual expression and authenticity. He let the world know that being different is not only ok, it can be beautiful. Like many others, David was taken from us way too soon due to cancer. To honor David, please join Planting Peace in counteracting the WBC's message of hate through a fundraising event to benefit children living with cancer. Through this fundraiser, Planting Peace will make a donation to St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Mr. Bowie's memory.
