WSU Help the Homeless Care Packages

December 2016

Peace Journals officially sponsored our first organization with tangible items! Since this organization has started, one of our main goals was to donate time and tangible items rather than just money. Our peace team worked together to collect and donate 100 gloves for WSU Help the Homeless care packages. The packages have been put together and will be delivered on Friday. A special thanks to all who donated!

 Pay It Forward 2016

March 2016

P.E.A.C.E Journals, decided to start Spring off right with some positivity and smiles. We inserted inspirational messages into a glass bottle for the person to keep, but also gave them a rose to pass onto anyone they please. Whether that was a friend, loved one, or someone in need of some love.

SPREAD THE LOVE, SHARE THIS VIDEO.

100 Person P.E.A.C.E. March

Saturday, April 17th, 2010 

P.E.A.C.E. The Humanitarian Movement™ organized a symbolic march of love and compassion. The march was inspired by philanthropists such as Mohandas Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, and countless others.  The march had no other agenda other than to show love and compassion to those who are less fortunate than us regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, religion, creed, sexual orientation, disabilities, veteran statues, or gender.

 Alternative Spring Break

March 6th-13th, 2010

P.E.A.C.E. Members traveled to the Louisiana area that was affected by Hurricane Rita several years ago.  Members helped build homes, clear wreckage, and helped those still in suffering.  P.E.A.C.E. collaborated with the Toledo Campus Ministry and University YMCA.  Members gave up their college spring breaks and instead of going to a typical college destinations, these members illustrated love and compassion to those who are less fortunate.  The trip embodies the essence of what P.E.A.C.E. The Humanitarian Movement stands for.

P.E.A.C.E. for Children of Toledo

Saturday, December 5th, 2009                                                                  

P.E.A.C.E. took toys to less fortunate children of Toledo and spent time with them.  At the 11/30 we collected toys for the event on 12/05.We put a $10 limit per toy but you are allowed to buy as many toys as you like. You can also bring used toys or other materials that the children can use. Just make sure that they are in decent shape. If you have any questions please let Ahmad Awada know. If you are unable to afford to donate a toy or find a used one, this does not mean you are not allowed to come with us for the event on 12/05. We as the P.E.A.C.E. The Humanitarian Movement will never require anyone to pay any money whatsoever or require them to go buy materials. That is why we gave the option of used toys or used children material. We must and will stick to the value that we will not fundraise for money, advertise for money, or even accept money donations. This is why if you want to buy a toy you have to do it on your own because P.E.A.C.E. will not take money donations even if it we were to collect money to buy the toys at a later time. This is completely voluntary and like I stated above, you are more than welcomed to participate if you can not get a toy.

Kick HIV/AIDS Out of Africa

P.E.A.C.E. members helped collect soccer balls and equipment to send to sub-Saharan Africa; the balls were distributed to pastors from Kafakumba Training Center to be used as magnets to draw people to HIV/AIDS education seminars. Ahmad Awada, the co-founder, organized Greek-lettered students at the University of Toledo to help out the cause. This was before P.E.A.C.E. was founded but was very much inspired by the P.E.A.C.E. founder and his belief of Peace, Love, and Compassion! Many of the members were part of Greek Letter organizations and would become the first members of P.E.A.C.E. The Humanitarian Movement.
