Right now, we’re calling on students to take a stand against ongoing humanitarian crises like drought, famine, and conflict. Did you know that drought in Somalia has left over 13 million people without a regular supply of food? That over 5 million have been lost to recent conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo, with countless left homeless and without a livelihood? We're calling on you to demand an end to these preventable atrocities by raising critical awareness and the funds we need to help your peers in Somalia and the D.R. Congo to rebuild their lives.
The Creative Call to Action:
Make a bone. We've partnered with the One Bones Project to over National Mall in Washington, D.C. with one million handmade bones as a visual protest to ongoing conflict. Every bone = $1 for CARE, a relief organization. Every bone you send to us triggers a $1 donation to support their efforts in Somalia and the D.R. Congo. You’ll be helping programs like the ETN school in Goma, the D.R. Congo, which provides vocational training to teens - including many former child combatants. Click here to find out how to make a bone!
A Chance to Connect & Share Your Voice:
Dive deeper. This isn’t just a fundraiser or an arts project. It’s a chance to meet other changemakers like yourself - including the Congolese students at ETN school! Share your story: Whether you join us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or for one of our interactive webcasts, we want to hear why ending humanitarian crises matters to you. Find out how you can join the conversation here.
