OWW Email Newsletter September 2016
So, One World Week is just 6 weeks away.
Still time to plan your event around the 2016 theme
"INCLUDING YOU - Acting Together for One World in Peace".
Already got it sorted? Send us the details here.
However big (a fayre?) or small (a school assembly?), it is good to be part of the combined effort of local activities all over the country. It also helps us to build an accurate picture of all the small “doves” creating a larger movement for peace and justice (as on our image).
Still need more ideas?
Or you can just do your own thing, as a regular meeting of your local group.
Or you might try and contact a local refugee organisation (lots have come into being in the last few months) to see if you can link up with them in some way.
No event will be too small or insignificant. And if it happens later than the official dates of 23 – 30 October, that will be OK as well! We still want to "include you"!
New downloadable resources are still in the process of being added to the website, including:
Do keep going back to the website to see what resources have been added or updated and which events have been posted. Enlist others to send in their email addresses as well, to be added to our database of on-line supporters.
Social Media: "Like" our Facebook page to keep in touch more frequently and use it to share information and stories more widely.
Contact us: We have limited capacity, all working as volunteers, but do email us on email@example.com if you have any questions or suggestions and we will do our best to answer.
Help us: If you would like to help us as an on-line volunteer from your own home, or as a Trustee, please get in touch so we can explore together how you might be able to join our team.
New Website: We are currently working hard preparing our new revamped website, with volunteer Charlotte valiantly cataloguing all our resources, so you will be able to find them easily in future on the new site just by typing in a couple of key words. To keep life simple, this will be launched after OWW is under way. Look out for announcements on the existing website and on our Facebook page.
Finally, don’t forget the vital pleas (“vital” because, in order to keep OWW operating, we need evidence to convince potential funders that events really are happening all over the country!):
We look forward to hearing how you have interpreted “Including You” relevant to your own community, sharing stories in solidarity with the vulnerable world-wide.
From the OWW team:
Alison, Aneta, Charlotte, Ingrid, Jonaid, Roger, Sarah, Sue,
and all at Webber Design helping us build our new, exciting website.
