Darfur – as fragile as paper dolls.

29 Oct

Mrs Levy’s Social Studies Class.

Students at Elm Place School are engaged in a project to bring about change in the Darfur region of Sudan. We are hoping to cut out 400,000 decorated paper dolls. If you would like to make a small donation, we’d appreciate that also. These dolls represent the 400,000+ lives lost due to the genocide taking place in Sudan. The dolls and money will be sent to Senator Barack Obama in hopes of demonstrating to him our belief that something needs to be done to stop this atrocity. Oftentimes when we hear about such horrors in the world, we do not know what to do. Here is your chance to make a real difference. Please join us in helping by:

It won’t change the world but it will help to bring more and more publicity to the fact of what is happening there. Until recently many in this country just didn’t know, just as many in this country know nothing of what goes on outside their own back yard.

So go ahead – make a paper doll and send it in.

Or you can just sit around and try to squeeze a laugh out of Darfur like they did in a post called Breaking News: World Unites to Save Darfur Huffinton Post Blog.

Some things are just beyond disgusting.

    I’ll make a paper doll coop, as a matter of fact I used to be good at designing with duct tape, I’m pretty talented in that way.

    The reason I don’t read pundit blogs be because most of the time they are as disgusting as the other side of their fence.
