Raise Your Hand

About the Campaign

During Outward Bound Peacebuilding programs, we count on others in the group to give us a hand. We connect – We collaborate – We celebrate hand in hand.

Our annual Raise Your Hand campaign is about the power of individuals and small groups of people are willing to stand up for and work for peace.

On September 21st – the UN decreed International Day of Peace – we will span the globe with Raise Your Hand photos and come together as a global community of supporters.

As the sun travels west, over 24 hours, the Raise Your Hand campaign will grow throughout the day.

Be part of an international moment. Help us challenge, inspire, teach and train local leaders who are working toward nonviolent change and peace.


The Multiplier Effect:

This year, a group of “multipliers” have pledged to make their contribution equal to a multiple of the total number of gifts and pledges!

Every photo is a pledge. Every pledge is a gift. Every gift, of every size, matters.

More people participating means more dollars raised in support of emerging leaders from communities around the world. They are agents of change and actors for peace. They inspire all of us.


On September 21st, you can:

– Follow our progress on our Facebook page

– Share your Raise Your Hand photos with your friends and family using #Raiseyourhand4peace

– Make your gift or pledge
