The internet is a game changer….
The people who would organise for war use it to promote their deadly agenda. We at Peace In Our Name are helping to turn the Internet to the advantage of those like us who would advocate peace.
By offering a few small and medium sized charities the opportunity to appear on a website that attracts the very people who sponsor their causes and donate to the people they represent is only a small service we can do for humanity. The people caught in the conflict torn countries and the advocates for peace as a whole are breaking the silence of suffering using social media and the network of determined and vocal humanitarians willing to share the stories and the experiences of those who most need a voice. This vital positive message for peace cannot be underestimated.
We offer articles, quotagraphics, beautiful and contempory world music, poetry and art to draw attention to the growing problems faced by people in the war torn world, as creative and expressive humanitarians share their talents with us for charity and for Peace.
We are dedicated to promoting selected charities including their mission statements and any messages they would like to share with their sponsors or donors, adding a button linking directly to their sites or to their crowd funding pages.
Raising awareness of the desperate situation in the middle east is paramount, raising awareness of the millions of people who are displaced, hurt, lost and in need of a voice is our mission and we will work hand in hand with the charities who offer help, love, and physical support to those most in need on the ground, anywhere in the world that those who are suffering may be given the love and support every human being deserves. We believe like Martin Luther King “Those who love peace must learn to organize as effectively as those who love war.”
Contribute Music for Peace
We’re currently looking for talented musicians, singers and songwriters who are happy to contribute their work towards a new peace music project. It has a working title of ‘Peace In Our Name’.
We are also currently researching both small and large charities in the Middle East who are doing great work to help support the victims, particularly child victims, of war - whether it is to provide food and shelter, education, or other desperately needed support.
In the new pro-peace music project we are aiming to create a great music album that people can listen to again and again that happens to raise funds for charity, rather than a ‘charity album’ per se, therefore we welcome great songs that have an overall positive message, regardless of the topic.
The album will raise money for selected charities supporting peace in the Middle East by allowing people to donate directly to them via our website. Our vision is that after visitors donate any amount to their preferred charity they will then be forwarded to a page where they can download the Peace In Our Name album.
This way people will be able to donate the amount of their choosing and all profits from downloads on www.peaceinourname.com will go directly to the charity of each individual’s choice. We will also sell the album via iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby and other popular music stores and all profits from these sales will also go to charity. All time spent creating music, singing and developing this site is voluntary, to maximise the amount that will be given to a charity.
All music contributions will be licensed on a non-exclusive basis and you will retain full copyright on your work, therefore you will be free to use it as you wish outside of Peace In Our Name.
You will gain the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to get your message out there, raise awareness of issues in the Middle East, help raise funds for the victims of war and ultimately give peace a chance.
You will also have our heartfelt gratitude and a dedicated Artist’s page on this website.
Not In Our Name CD
In January 2016 Not In Our Name CD gently morphed into Peace In Our Name after a unanimous vote, with a decision to focus more on a pro-peace message, rather than an anti-war message.
