My name is Jennie Keeran and my husband's name is Daniel. Seven years ago we started an organization called homelesspartners.com. We are now trying to use this as a template to create a peace project.
We are looking for partners who will help us: 1. Interview Palestinians and Israelis who have been impacted by war. 2. Put those interviews on a website, translated into at least 3 languages -- Arabic, Hebrew, English, maybe more languages. 3. Send out press releases so the global press will drive traffic to the website, 4. Arrange for organizations to receive and distribute the responses and gifts from those those who read the stories and respond with words of caring and small gifts.
We are in Rome, Italy right now pitchung this project to as many people as we can find---especially parts of the Catholic church. If you have any suggestions about how to use existing groups please contact me at jenniek(at)uniserve.com.
