Global Campaign for Peace Education - monthly newsletter/digest
---

Dear subscriber,

Welcome to the December compendium of the Global Campaign for Peace Education news!

In the season of giving that is upon us, the Global Campaign for Peace Education is looking for members to give their time to support our important work. Specifically, we are looking for volunteers who can assist us in keeping up with the news and postings.  If you are somewhat tech savvy, familiar with WordPress, and are able to give an hour or two a week we would love your help.  Please reach out to us at [email protected]  

And once again, our gentle monthly plea: please help us "spread peace ed" by using the hashtags #SpreadPeaceEd and #PeaceEd, following us on social media, and by sharing and reposting news on your timeline and in your communities.  The Global Campaign is very active on Facebook and Twitter.  

In peace & solidarity,

Tony Jenkins
Coordinator, Global Campaign for Peace Education
