The #PeaceDayProject2016 …


Helloooo, and welcome back! The 2016 Peace Day festivities are underway, and we hope that you enjoying this project as much as we enjoyed creating it.

This project is about making a little change in the world and asking you all reading this to make a little change, as well. Peace is all about individual action so take some time and think about what your contribution can be. And, yes we have ideas for you in each post leading up to Peace Day.

2014 showed some impressive statistics with the Peace One Day Report which recorded over 1 billion people exposed to Peace Day messages and 10 million people behaving more peacefully on the day as a result of the movement.

Our throwback collage from 2014 was about how peace comes in all languages. It is with sincere appreciation to all the villagers that took the time to help us with expressing peace in their native tongue.

Now onto the questions …

Who will you make peace with?

What will you do for peace on Peace Day?

Here’s an idea for you!!! One Day One Goal uses the power of sport in observation of Peace Day, 21st September. Organize a soccer match or even a tournament dedicated to peace.

Not a soccer player??? Pick whatever sport you like.

Not the sporty type???

It’s okay, we have more ideas coming your way.,

Peace out, ya’ll!

HAPPY PEACE DAY TO ALL!!!

Thank you to all the lovely children and rescue pups that participated in our #PeaceDayProject2015.  There is nothing better than experiencing the pure essence of kids and canines!

Pictured just like a clock, check out ….. Kayla at 12 o’clock, Titiana at 3 o’clock, Isabelle at 6 o’clock and Elise at 9 o’clock, holding Cody. It’s “time” for everyone to celebrate Peace ….. just for one day. Who knows where we can go from there??? Thank you Dr. Mariana Delgado for allowing your daughter, Elise and her friends to participate in the #PeaceDayProject2015.

Now, the quote we use every year to end our project … May peace be with you always and in all ways …

If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.
~Lao Tzu

Who will YOu make peace with on 21st September?????????

The #PeaceDayProject2015 … Sunday …

wpid-picsart_1442712797532.jpg
It’s almost … Peace Day 2015!

Now ……
let’s fast forward to 2050. What do you think Peace Day will be like??? We’re not sure, but if we keep working for peace on all levels, we may be able to reach the largest ever recorded cessation of hostilities both domestically and internationally. It’s all about individual action and getting children involved.

With that said, we would like to share with you a non-profit organization that focuses on getting the “littles” involved in Peace Day. They were inspired by Peace One Day and their campaign to raise awareness on the 21st September. They are a non-profit enterprise, and all money raised will go directly back into the company. It’s about children and education ….. it’s about peace, and moving it forward into the future.

We refer to them as our friends in peace, but you’ll find them on Google, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as … Postcards For Peace. They are all about getting young people involved in the peace process by raising awareness for peace and hosting events like a design competition and the postcard exchange network. All the info will be on the web address listed below, as well as, an introductory video of what Postcards For Peace is all about. Please watch and be inspired!

It’s time for another pic in our kids and canines week. Here is the lovely angel, Zoey and her rescue, Gracie. Thank you to Safety Harbor residents, Gloria and Kevin Francis for letting them participate in our peace party.

Today, instead of a question, we would like to give you a thought that was given to us by our friends in peace ….. I BELIEVE I CAN CHANGE MY WORLD!!!!

The #PeaceDayProject2015 … Saturday …

wpid-picsart_1442449634594.jpg
Nothing cryptic here 🙂 ….. just kids and canines celebrating peace working up to International Peace Day, the 21st September.

Peace One Day has many goals … ceasefire, non-violence, peace within our homes, schools and communities. They also measure the amount of people coming together in the name of peace. This day is far from symbolism … that’s why measurement of peace on all levels is so important.

Now, it is time to promote peace together by individual action!!!

It’s called the “Thunderclap” and it’s an easy way for individuals to promote Peace One Day. It’s just a little click of a button and Thunderclap does the rest. It amplifies the message of peace and spreads it on social media via Twitter, Facebook or Tumbler. By registering on Thunderclap, you are allowing them to share a message on your behalf in support of Peace One Day. It’s just ONE message … ONE time only, which will be on Peace Day.

WHAT SAY YOU???

Why not put your individuality to work. Speak out for peace within homes, schools and communities. Speak out against child abuse ….. speak out against animal cruelty ….. let your voice be counted!!!

Our pic of the day is from Ed’s Fine Wines in the village. His name is Brunello, and he is promoting a peaceful and cruelty-free society. Thank you to Brunello’s dad, Ed Giancola for letting Brunello be part of our #PeaceDayProject2015.

Always ……… the question is ……… Who will YOu make peace with???

Well, the weekend is upon us. We hope that you are thinking and acting more peacefully as we shift from work mode to weekend mode. For the sake of any newbies to the #PeaceDayProject2015, our theme this week is kids and canines!

This week-long project is about getting involved. What can you do to raise awareness for peace in the home? What can you do to stop animal cruelty? What can you do to support Peace One Day???

We have an idea!!!!!!!!

You can shop for peace!!!

It’s the weekend ….. it’s time for kicking back and doing a little retail therapy, don’t ya think??? The Peace One Day website will be listed below, so take a look and start hitting that “add to cart” icon. Fashion Designers Marc Jacobs, Dave Little, Stella McCartney and Toby Mott are all contributors with some really unique t-shirt designs that support the campaign.

And if you live around the village, please visits the businesses that agreed to be a part of our #PeaceDayProject2015. They didn’t do it for the advertising ….. they did it because they believe in this movement.

Pictured: Our crew of the day!!! Left to right we have Drew, Jake holding Hershey with Chloe keeping the family corralled together. Thank you Andy and Cammie Zodrow for allowing your family to participate in the #PeaceDayProject2015.

So, remember to love your littles ….. treat all animals with kindness ….. shop for peace ….. support your local businesses, because they want peace.

AND … the question of the day ….
Who will YOu make peace with on 21st September????

The #PeaceDayProject2015 … Thursday …

wpid-dsc_1321.jpeg

Happy Thursday to all. We’re here all week building peace one day at a time.

As you can see, the #PeaceDayProject2015 is all about kids and canines, but we would like to let you know of something Peace One Day is trying to create … AND … how you can help!!!

Peace One Day actually measures the amount of peaceful activities on the 21st September on all levels. We feel that everyone has a responsibility to institutionalizing this day, and no effort is too small. That’s why we have registered this project for the last 4 years.

Now, onto what you can do!!!

Let’s make millions more aware of Peace Day by contacting the world’s most powerful search engine and asking for their support in this cause.

YEP …. that would be Google …. and, YES …. we’re talking Google Doodle!!!

Email Google and ask them to dedicate their doodle on 21st September to peace.

Are you creative???

You can suggest your own Google Doodle!!! The address will be listed below.

Pictured: What a trio!!! Left to right we have Jaxson, Hope and Nikki, and oh…what fun it was to meet these jewels from the village. Thank you to their parents, Steve and Kelli Chickos, owners of The Dog House of Safety Harbor for letting them participate in our project.

We end with this question…..

Who will YOu make peace with on 21st September???

Our theme this year is …. kids and canines!!! Peace Day is not only about ceasefire between nations; it’s about peace on all levels. It’s about stopping the violence, torture, neglect and abandonment of our most beautiful treasures.

Pictured here, we have one of our little villagers, Ben with his bodyguard, Duke … our treasures!!! Thank you to their parents, Angel and Nate Johnson for your help in promoting the #PeaceDayProject2015!

Please join the movement of Peace One Day and help to create the largest recorded cessation of hostilities both domestically and internationally.

Woohoo!!! The #PeaceDayProject2015 is underway!!!

We’re here all week celebrating peace at every level.

Peace in the heart…
Peace in the home..
Peace between neighbors…
Peace in the cities…
Peace in the nations…
Peace in the world…

This year we have chosen children and rescue animals as our theme. Both have pure essences and a unique quality that most of us forgot along the years ….. unconditional love. So why is there so much abuse of these innocent souls??? A question for you to ponder as this week plays out.

It’s the age of innocence … in dog years!!! Because, that’s how we roll!!!

We hope you enjoy seeing some of our little villagers, as well as, some of our canine villagers promoting peace!

Pictured: Marissa holding the peace poster we made 4 years ago. Thank you to her parents, owners of Sabai Asian Bistro in the village for letting her participate in our celebration.

The #PeaceDayProject2014…

POD...Sept 22 Karen
It’s that time again.

Third times a charm … so we hear.

21st September is International Peace Day and it is devoted to, not only, ceasefire between countries, but peace at every level.

Peace in the heart…
Peace in the home…
Peace  between neighbors…
Peace in the cities…
Peace in the nations…
Peace in the World…

It started with one man and one crazy idea. Founder and Filmmaker, Jeremy Gilley, started a journey 15 years ago to establish a day of ceasefire and non-violence on a fixed calendar day. It was unanimously adopted by the United Nations in 2001, and with the help of Ambassador for Peace One Day, Jude Law, it has grown into a day far from symbolism.

This day is not just to create awareness–of which it does with magnitude. This day calculates and measures the amount of ceasefire, non-violence, and people acting more peacefully on 21st September.

The goal: 3 billion people aware of Peace Day and acting more peacefully by 2016.

Okay. Here is where we tell you what we’re doing to celebrate this most important cause. Each day of the week, leading up to Peace Day, a different villager will be pictured with their words of peace, in their native language. Also, we will be sharing with you some of the events that Peace One Day is conducting to spread the word. We have also registered this project–for the third year–with the organization to assist in the measurement for peaceful activities across the globe.

We think everyone has a role to play, so here we are — Terrie and Karen — holding our peace poster. We created this poster 3 years to commemorate this special day, and we’ve been toting it around ever since in promotion of peace and rasing awareness within our community.

And, so it begins.

Who will YOU make peace with???

I realize peace one day is about peace and recognizing the cultural differences around the entire world……however
this project, for me, is about embracing the cultural diversity WITHIN one community, living together in peace. I may not be able to read these signs written in a different languages but I know love feels the same for each of us. AND (Love has no political boundaries.)

The #PeaceDayProject…September 21, 2013

POD, Sept 21,2013
It’s International Peace Day. OH! HAPPY DAY!!!

Our #PeaceDayProject today goes to…

The villagers…the citizens…the peeps…the lovely souls of Safety Harbor, Florida, pictured here with City Commissioners, Nina Bandoni and Nancy Besore.

You all deserve a round of applause.

It is with gratitude this is written. Gratitude for this beautiful group of villagers that took time out of their day–a really inconvenient time of day–to put their PRESENCE to work in the name of peace. You all are the best…THANK YOU!!!!

We would like to ask anyone reading this to please google http://www.peaceoneday.org and check out this website. It’s truly inspiring. Today, Peace One Day is streaming live for 24 hours with festivities and a concert from The Peace Palace in the Netherlands. YOu can celebrate Peace Day with the world, so if you have time, please check it out…OR…just make the time because it is soooo worth it.

AND…now the quote…

If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.

POD-2013-Day 7

21st September…It’s all about peace…
Peace in the heart…
Peace in the home…
Peace between neighbors…
Peace in the cities…
Peace in the nations…
Peace in the World…

Who will YOu make peace with on 21st September???

It all started with one individual and an idea. Jeremy Gilley started a journey in 1999 to create a day of global unity…intercultural cooperation…Peace Day. It was unanimously adopted in 2001 by the United Nations, and has steadily grown to about 280 million peeps aware of Peace Day. With the help of Jude Law, Ambassador for Peace One Day, and individuals coming together for peace, the goal of three billion peeps aware of Peace Day and acting more peacefully by 2016 is definitely attainable.

Last year, we registered an online event with the Peace One Day Organization. We had a simply marvelous time toting our peace poster around the village and getting our fellow villagers in on the action.

Well, it’s that time again, and this year’s campaign is targeting…families, friends and communities. It’s not just about reduction of violence between countries. It’s about reduction of violence in the home…the schools…the communities.

Domestic violence, bullying, hate crimes and community cohesion are some of the themes this year, so we decided to take our #PeaceDayProject to our city government and get them involved. Different departments within our village, promoting peace (with our cool peace poster) will be showcased everyday for the rest of the week.

Starting off the #PeaceDayProject is binvested (Kawen and Tewwie) asking you to be a part of the largest gathering of individuals standing together in the name of peace. AND…asking you the question…Who will you make peace with?????????

Please check out http://www.PeaceOneDay.org and join the movement!!!
