Easter of Peace
EVENT DATE: Apr 24, 2011
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Apr 21, 2011
The recent pacifications of various Rio de Janeiro favelas (slums) made international headlines last November. An area that suffered extreme violence and devastation was Complexo do Alemão in the north of Rio de Janeiro. The community is slowly starting to rebuild itself, and many residence are hoping that things will be better now! Since Easter is a celebration of rebirth and new beginnings, we feel it would be appropriate to create an event that symbolizes this dawn of a new day! We are going to create the first Easter of Peace celebration for the children of Complexo do Alemão!
