265 Candles Lit for Peace - 35 More Needed For $500 Challenge

Kari and Dan Rominski pledge to contribute an additional $500 if we raise an additional 50 gifts over the original challenge of $2,500 for 250 donations

So far 265 donations have been made each representing someone’s desire for more peaceful schools communities and world.  Each gift is like a candle burning in defiance to the darkness of hatred, bullying and violence.   

Please contribute $10 or more here to join the people below in showing your support for helping kids learn to be peacemakers.  Let your commitment be counted and your light be seen to inspire others

With your help we will show that there is broad community support for helping schools to stop bullying and to teach youth positive relational skills like empathy, respect for others and how to resolve conflicts peacefully. 

With increased support we will be able to serve more schools and help more kids learn to be peacemakers.

Please ask your friends and family members to join in this effort.
