TheWhole9.com founded The Peace Project in July of 2010, and set out to prove that great change can happen very quickly.
On September 21st of 2011, World Peace Day, thousands of creatives from around the world joined hands with the people of Sierra Leone in what may be the most unique collaboration ever attempted.
On this day, 10,000 pairs of crutches were distributed across the country to amputees, war victims, polio survivors, and children -- some who have been crawling on the ground for ten years.
Our agenda for 2012 and beyond is even more ambitious, but first we must return to Sierra Leone in March, to implement the final phase of Operation Rise during which we aim to ensure that every person that needs a pair of crutches in Sierra Leone (no matter where) receives them.
Thank you for your support.
