Just wondering......
So I was Just wondering what you are doing and where whatever you are doing is taking place. You seem really well organized, and I am just a really concerned kid who wants to help. Thanks!

Hearts and Hands International blogathon for kids!


I know this isn’t the normal conversation but I thought this was something really cool and should tell you guys!

Spread the word… Hearts and Hands International, a non-profit charity, is having a Blog-athon. Today only – until 9pm (MT).

Please help out by visiting www.heartsandhandsinternational.org/blogathon.html

 You don’t need to donate, they’re just looking for traffic.

If you can…. Hearts and Heads would really appreciate it if you could post a short blog with a link back so we can help spread the word.  That would really help make this spread like “wild fire”!!  I hope you guys will blog about it too! let me know if you do that'd be cool!!

Hearts and Hands helps out at-risk children around the world… it never hurts to raise awareness.

Someone besides me posted for once! Awesome. Alright. Now the rest of you need to start.  Just introduce yourself!

We also have a logo but it isn't finished yet.


mostly because I can't color stuff to save my life.

If anyone wants to go ahead and colour that for me, great. That would be amazing.

I have a couple places in mind around my area for where this could be done, but I need suggestions. If you don't live around where I do and you want to hold another branch, start looking for places that you could pull this off.

I made an itemized list of things that we would need, and how we can acquire them.


        - Cardboard
               - Ask for donations for food suppliers and others. They might be able to give you old boxes.
               - Home Depot/Lowe's/etc
         - Paints
               - Ask for donations from art stores
               - Ask for donations from Home Depot/Lowe's/etc.
Merchandise (t-shirts, hats, hoodies, etc.)
               - Cafepress
               - Donated from someplace? Discounted?
               - Donated w/ advertising (i.e. a company gets the items made but puts their name on it)
Food/Refreshments (make sure vegan options are available)
               - Donated/brought by event leaders?
               - Ask people if they'd like to come and sell, with a booth
         - Raffle/Chinese Auction
               - Prizes donated/bought
         - Games/Contests (make sure they can be for all ages, little kids might be there too)
               - Hula-hoop contest
               - Water relay race
               - Jumprope contest
               - Jellybean guessing, or something?
         - Music
               - Ask local bands

Of course there's more, that's just what I've thought of at the moment.

Guys, come on!
You guys need to all start posting! I hate being the only one to post in this comm. Also, you NEED to tell more people about this. Seriously. We only have like 7 or 8 members. Spread the word. I'm not even kidding. I don't care how you do it, just TELL people!

Hey, guys. Update!
Hey guys. Today I realized, with Ruli's help, that this shouldn't be just a national thing. Why not make it global?

And hell, why are we focusing on just Darfur? Uganda is in crisis too.

So then I got to thinking about what we were going to do. How do we make this work? How do we get people to band together, worldwide?

I took some ideas from Relay for Life, some ideas from the Displace Me project, and my own ideas and I put them together.

How do we piece together lives crushed by genocide?

What I figured we could do was find a massive piece of land-- a highschool football field, even. People can come and to join the event, you donate food, money, water, or simple medical supplies; bandages, etc. Then, I've designed a couple t-shirts that you can buy to donate more money-- maybe we could also get bracelets or hats.

So what would we be doing, there? Well, upon joining the event everyone gets a piece of cardboard. Two feet by two feet, that's it. I'm going to see if we can get cardboard and paints donated. Each person is going to paint something that relates to the crisis on their piece of cardboard. Anything, as long as it relates.

You'll have all night-- I stole this bit from the Relay for Life, but it's going to run probably from like 7 pm to 7 am.

When you finish your piece, you can start putting them together-- to create a huge picture, a collage, to represent rebuilding lives. They'll be put together by sunrise.

So, lem'me know what you guys think. Also, spread the word of this. Tell people you know and other people with LJs.

Hey, guys. Seth here. I'm the main mod of this comm. and the kid who started it. Yeah, I'm a kid.

This is dedicated to easing the crisis in Darfur, which is in Africa. Sudan, specifically.

The conflict started in, believe it or not, 1983. May 16. To think this has been going on this long is a scary thing. It became an actual war in 2003 and is still going on to this day.

Sudan is now divided into two main factions-- the Janjaweed militia are attacking Darfur. Children as young as five years old are captured-- boys turned into footsoldiers, little girls into sex slaves. People are tortured and killed regularly.

The death count is nearly 400,000. There are 250,000 refugees.

How many more are we going to let die?

We're here not to stop the crisis but to ease the lives of the people. Organized events, t-shirt and bracelet sales, donated food. Everything goes to these people.
