12/04/2008: "What Would You Give Up To Save A Life?"

What would you give up to save a life?

With just $3, Orcas Island High School students can allow a woman in Darfur to safely collect firewood for a week. With just $5, Orcas Island High School students can enable urgent warnings of an attack to reach villages in Eastern Burma.

On December 3rd, Participate in STAND Fast by pledging to give up one luxury item and donating the money you would’ve spent on that item to the Genocide Intervention Network’s groundbreaking civilian protection program. Just think about it. By skipping a latte for the day, you’ll be working with students all over the globe to save lives in Darfur and Burma.

Never again was the promise that the United States government made after the genocide in Rwanda fourteen years ago, yet here we are AGAIN six years into a horrific war that the United State Congress has named “Genocide”. We, at Orcas Island High School, are making a public STAND against genocide in building a movement to end it.

December 3rd many of us will be fasting, collecting money, and writing letters to make our voices heard for the people in Darfur. There will be a donation box in the public high school office, please help us break the silence by educating yourself on genocide.

Thank you,

Maddy Smith,
class of 2009
