Coconut Creatives founders Sarah and Chris Cook are delighted to announce Peace One Day as the company’s official non-profit organisation that they wish to support.
Peace One Day is headed by Jeremy Gilley who has worked tirelessly for the last 10 years to establish 21 September as a day of global peace. Sarah and Chris met Jeremy recently at a Peace One Day fund raising event in London.
With support from famous names like Angelina Jolie, The Dalai Lama, Jude Law and Annie Lennox, Peace One Day has managed to raise much awareness. Jeremy has campaigned around the world to boost recognition and increase momentum of this official day of ceasefire and non-violence agreed by the United Nations.
“We cannot think of a better cause than to support a day of peace,” says Sarah Cook. “Wherever you live, everyone deserves peace, especially the children in war zones and those that have lived a lifetime of violence in fearful situations. If we can help to spread the awareness of 21 September, Peace Day, we help to save lives.”
“If we are to move from a culture of war to a culture of peace then we will have to unite around the most fundamental issue that humanity faces – the protection of each other and our environment,” says Jeremy Gilley, Founder of Peace One Day.
“21 September, Peace Day, is the starting point and I am delighted to have the support and commitment of Coconut Creatives in helping us raise awareness. Our call to action is ‘What will you do to make peace on 21 September?”
Please make your commitment at wwww.peaceoneday.org and mark 21 September on your calendar to include yourself in this global day of peace.
