100,000 for Peace

 
Since this is supposed to be the season of peace and goodwill, I want to pass this along: http://www.ucc.org/100Kforpeace/ This is an effort underway by the UCC to raise $100,000 for much-needed food, water, health care and education for war-affected Iraqi families displaced in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan. In conjunction with this, the UCC has a drive to lift 100,000 prayers of support for military personnel serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere this Christmas. Finally, they are attempting to spearhead 100,000 in-district visits, letters and calls to the local offices of our Senators and Representatives. Find out more about the effort at: http://www.ucc.org/100Kforpeace/ In conjunction with this, I have a couple of new holiday songs posted on My Space - "Peace on Earth" and "P-E-A-C-E" (a children's song). http://www.myspace.com/anthonyneff Check them out. If you want a CD with these songs on them, send me an email. All I ask is that you participate in the 100,000 for Peace effort in some part. If you do, let me know, and I'll arrange to get you a CD.
