BENEFITING: The World Peace Prayer Society, Inc.
WHAT I NEED: automated cookie dough rolling machine, used, 25 - 30K.
WHY COOKIES4PEACE: I visited the World Peace Sanctuary, Wassaic, NY, 1999. I would never be the same! Volunteers maintain a Path for Peace lined with 7' Peace Poles inscribed with the world peace message; May Peace Prevail On Earth, on all four sides of the post and in the language of that soverign nation. The path leads to a wooded valley where festivals are held each year www.worldpeace.org .
After 9/11 I decided to "plant" at least one new Peace Pole on a school campus each year - for the rest of my life! I'm on track :o)
Although I remain full-time in the Army National Guard as a Resilience, Risk Reduction, Suicide Prevention Program Coordinator, I have kept this pasion and promise. I was thrilled to be able to dedicate a Peace Pole to the Marefat school, Kabul, Afghanistan, while on deployment in 2010.
Please consider helping me to realize a dream of every school having a Peace Pole Garden - a place dedicated to character education and cultivating a national identity as peace builders. You can read about my vision for raising funds for Peace Poles 4 Public Schools here: www.nibble-yer-scribble.com. Although that project is on hold, if anyone wants to breathe life back into it, I am open to all serious ventures.
