WORLD CEASEFIRE VIGIL

CEASEFIRE
World Ceasefire Vigil
Originally uploaded by carf.

During the last week I’m sure there are many visitors to the Flickr photostreams who have noticed all the small black ribbons that Flickrites are now using as their buddy icons. Those icons represent more than just another Flickr identity, they represent a strong desire for world peace and a stop to the recent war breakout, by the many who have chosen to wear them for this peace action, an important action against yet another war to destroy thousands of innocent citizens, their families, their homes and their countries.

This is why over 4000 Flickrites decided to unite their actions this last week in a group called MUNDO UNO

…and the group is constantly growing as one of the fastest and most
meaningful on Flickr.

* MUNDO UNO means ONE WORLD.
* MUNDO UNO is a call for peace.
* MUNDO UNO is a virtual protest against the madness of the war.
* MUNDO UNO is a way to say: stop the killing of civilians in both sides.

Shall we be ONE, one world, one face, one people to change this?


I hope and believe so and that is why I am asking you, my Flickr friends and contacts and anyone else visiting this Blog, to be part of this important action for World Peace.

Please join us today and take part in the group's CEASEFIRE action in
support of Amnesty International's WORLD CEASEFIRE VIGIL.
More information about this can be found in the group's discussion
threads.

I thank you and I'm sure our group members thank you.
MUNDO UNO

Olá,

gostaria de entrar em contato sobre um projeto de documentário a ser feito aqui no brasil sobre crianças de rua e crianças que vivem em favelas.
Não consigo encontrar o endereço de e-mail de vocês para enviar as propostas e objetivos deste documentário.
conhecendo o trabalho da carf, acho que seria de extrema valia registrá-lo neste documentário.
por favor, entrem em contato assim que possível.
grata

Dear Luciana,
CARF has the Norwegian equivalent of a 501c3 status in Norway as the Foundation's base is there and also where we receive all contributions to our programmes for children at risk in Brazil.

I can send you details for transfering any funds you can manage from abroad to my Foundation if you send your e-mail address to: donations@carfweb.net

I do not have much money but I do have time. How can somebody volunteer with your organization?
I am at a point in my life where I want to do something worthwhile with my life. I am tired of just working to earn money. I sincerely want to make a diference in somebodys life. I have thought about doing what you did Gregory in selling everything and moving to a place and helping those who really need it. I am serious about this but not sure where to start. I have been to Brazil many times and love the work you are doing. I have many skills to offer to enrich peoples lives.

How does one do this?

You can email me at

thank you
