On September 29, Seeds, Parents, Counselors, and friends will walk from City Hall across the Brooklyn Bridge to raise awareness and support for Seeds of Peace.
Seeds of Peace needs your help to spread the word and raise awareness for its vital mission – to empower leaders of the next generation with the skills necessary to advance peace!
TO REGISTER YOURSELF AS A WALKER: Click the gray button FUNDRAISE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN to set up a walker page.
Then share your story – why you support Seeds of Peace – on your personal fundraising page. Invite your friends to join you in supporting the organization.
If everyone meets the minimum fundraising goal of $50 for their walk for peace, Seeds of Peace will collect enough funds to send another young leader to Camp.
Walkers will meet at 1 p.m. outside of City Hall (at the intersection of Park Row and Centre Street) and begin to walk the bridge at 2. We will gather for a picnic in Brooklyn Bridge Park on the Harbor View Lawn after the walk.
About Seeds of Peace:
In the face of some of the world’s most intractable conflicts, Seeds of Peace gives rise to new generations of leaders uniquely inspired and equipped to build lasting peace.
Treaties are negotiated by governments; peace is made by people. Since 1993, Seeds of Peace has set the standard in international peace-building by providing exceptional young people and educators from regions of conflict with an otherwise impossible opportunity to meet their historic enemies face-to-face at our International Camp in Maine.
We build on their extraordinary and critical relationships and understanding through year-round local programs that focus on the core leadership capacities needed to advance peace. There are now over 5,000 Seeds and Educators from 27 countries who prove that solutions exist, peace is possible, and there is reason to have hope for a better future.
