This Month at OB Peacebuilding – Oct. 2013

cth2Raise Your Hand Campaign

Raise Your Hand for Outward Bound Peacebuilding is our annual end of the year friend and fundraising campaign that celebrates OB Peacebuilding’s work with small groups of people that come together to build momentum for big change.

Your donations of $20, $50, and $100 will support Outward Bound Peacebuilding’s work with local leaders who are best positioned to solve the conflicts in their communities. What you donate will be matched up to $20K by four amazing challenge match sponsors.

A small contribution from you today can mean $40K for OB Peacebuilding next year!

We also ask people to e-mail 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.
