Raise Your Hand Campaign!

During OB Peacebuilding programs, we count on others in the group to give us a hand – we start each morning with a morning circle holding hands to feel the strength of the group as we begin another day. We help each other up steep slopes, across streams and gullies, and we hold each others ropes for rock climbing. The Raise Your Hand campaign celebrates OB Peacebuilding’s work with small groups of people that work together to build momentum for big change.

We ask people to send us a picture of themselves, or post it on the FB page, with their hand raised to show that they support the work of OB Peacebuilding.

 Please visit our Facebook page if you would like to post your photo and message on our Wall or e-mail kristine[at]outwardboundpeace.org with your photo.

  As a former intern and co-founder of OBCP’s Junior Board, I am passionate about the human element that OBCP’s programming brings to conflict resolution.  Ana Patel and Nettie Pardue have been an inspiration to work with and I look forward to what 2013 has to bring!

Michal is not on FB, but asked us to post this picture demonstrating her support as an alum of the 1st Practicum for Experiential Peacebuilding program in June 2012.
Thank you for your donation, Michal!
While recent photos are still to come, I figured that it’s only fitting that we recycle the Outward Bound Centre for Peacebuilding spirit from that surreal expedition earlier this year in that Costa Rican Rainforest.. See us girls have long been supporting OB’s courageous peacebuilding endeavours- we’ve now just ‘put our money where our mouth is’! Hopefully such cherished memories inspire the rest of the crew and many others to get behind this challenge. Lots of love and well wishes from across the Pacific xo

The experience was a defining moment in my life… It went beyond reconnecting with nature, myself, and my fellow Outward Bounders… It reconnected me with my empathy and my resolve to work for change.

I support the OBCP mission and I believe in it because I believe in people, relationships and friendships. Even if we are different, when we stop being who we think we are, we find ourselves and we connect with others!

This raised hand of support comes to you from Colombian rainforests – a place where the FARC once hid out this past decade. So it’s no secret I support OBCP and everything they are doing to bring together opposing groups and end conflict. Thanks for all of your hard work, OBCP!

I raise my hand to signify my belief in the power of Outward Bound to open our eyes to the strength, goodness, and compassion that lies inside of us. I am honored to play a role in sharing the power of Outward Bound with leaders who will determine what course we will take in the years to come, especially in communities where the challenges are complex and multi-layered.-Luke O’Neill
