Step 4: Donate Bones & Meet This ChallengeSubmit your handmade bones. Mail your contributions for placement at the National Mall in 2013. Students from outside North America have the option to submit photographs of their handmade bones, which will be digitally woven into the final installation and selectively incorporated into a book and short film about the project.
Do you live outside of the United States and want to participate? We know that shipping outside of the U.S. is expensive so you are welcome to send a digital photo of your handmade bone(s) to email@example.com. Be sure to let us know how many bones were made and where you live. Pair the photo and bone count with a personal story, a wish or other photographs of your bone making event. Follow these simple steps and your bones will also be counted and will generate funds for CARE!
Generate a donation. Your handmade bones will generate funding for CARE’s work to improve livelihoods and advance educational opportunities for young people in Somalia and the DRC. Read more about how the challenge works and where the funding will go here.
