Where Peace Lives, the innovative, New Jersey-based organization (founded by graduates of the Landmark Forum) that uses media based projects to foster peace in young people and adults in schools and organizations throughout the world, held a fundraiser on September 20 that used a novel concept: Pampering for Peace.
The fundraiser or this peace group, held at the United Methodist Church in Red Bank, was also a wellness fair: massage therapy, reflexology, reiki, raw foods and a variety of wellness vendors were all available to the hundreds of visitors, who also bought over a thousand raffle tickets towards 20 valuable gift baskets, which included various heath and wellness items, gift certificates, concert tickets, books, DVDs, etc.
The response was extremely positive, with many visitors asking for the date of the next event. Where Peace Lives founders and directors Jeff Clapp, Donna Clapp and Jeff Rudy have decided to make the fundraiser an annual event.
All funds from the event went to Where Peace Lives programs in the U.S. and abroad. To find out more about Where Peace Lives and its groundbreaking programs, read a previous Landmark Education News story about the organization (and a follow up), or visit the Where Peace Lives website.
