Many of you may have already heard about this event.... We have been trying to get the word around for a while now, and you may have seen some of our stuff. But if you have not heard about it here is the deal:
...and before you say everyday should be Peace Day we hope you read the event description
Peace Day 8-14-11
If you live on planet Earth and you believe in the power of Peace, you should join this event. There are two very simple parts to the day: Service and Celebration.
Part I: We encourage all participants to commit various acts of charity in the days leading up to, and including 8-14. These acts of charity may take any form you wish. It could be as simple as a donation to a charitable cause. Or you could volunteer with a local charity closer to home. The possibilites for service are endless. By committing these acts we will Serve Peace.
Part II: The second part of the day is Celebration. This should speak for itself. If there is one thing humans do well, its party The celebrations that take place on 8-14 may also be as large, or as small as you wish. You could have a small party with friends and family at home, or you could take initiative to organize a larger event in your area.
Chances are there is a public space near you where such a gathering may be created. Ideally it is our hope that individuals will take it upon themselves to organize and coordinate these larger scale gatherings in their area. We urge you to be creative, and most importantly....have fun!
Why cant Everyday be Peaceday?
In an ideal World every day would indeed be Peace Day. However, the point of this day is to harness the tremendous positive power that is created when individuals decide to come together. (Think about the collective energy that is created at a show....we want to expand that circle of energy around the World. We want this to be big. The bigger this gets the more positive the results will be. It is a day for us to demonstrate our global Unity. We can form a massive display of kindness that will by its sheer size overwhelm even the most critical skeptics. By doing this we might shine light into some of the darkest corners of the world. We may warm some of the coldest hearts.

Peace Day 8-14-11
So thats the deal. If you are on FB we hope you visit the link and click, "Attending" and pass it on. If you are not on FB stay tuned...we hope to have a website up in about a week. I will post that link when its up. If anyone has any comments, questions or concerns...please feel free to post them here...or msg me on FB from the event page. We have the ability to really get a good thing going here....technology permits us to communicate, coordinate, and synchronize our efforts all over the world with relative ease. We figured its time to take advantage of those connections.
WE ARE EVERYWHERE.... So lets make something happen. Get the word around to people. Spread the word if you are on tour. Start thinking about charity events you can put together. If you play in a band... get a gig together and do a food drive. The sky is the limit. We are a pretty resourceful group on the whole, and all of us have talents, connections, ideas etc. that can bring something unique to this event....if everyone just put a little bit into this, it could really turn into something special.
Every time that Wheel turns round...bound to cover just a little more ground
