Our group is participating in a number of events throughout the year to both raise funds for Free the Children and the projects they are organizing, and to help those in our own community who are in need through food bank drives and working with agencies such as WIN house to improve the lives of those who need our support.

Sometimes the quietest actions create the loudest response. In 1930, Gandhi led a peaceful 240-mile, 24-day trek through India in protest of British taxes, signaling the beginning of the end of British colonial rule. In 1969, John Lennon and Yoko Ono staged two "bed-ins" inside Amsterdam and Montreal hotel rooms to promote world peace, capturing the attention of media around the world.

 

The Vow of Silence campaign is meant to do just the same—attract as much attention as possible to raise awareness and create real social change. Each year, youth around the world pledge to stay silent for 24 hours to support children who are silenced by the denial of their basic rights.

 

Participants can collect donations for each hour, minute or second they stay silent, or for the day as a whole. Silence can mean no speaking, or it can mean no communicating at all: no e-mailing, no social networking, no instant messaging, no note-writing. You can join the movement by taking the Vow this year on November 20 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Alternatively, you can choose another date that suits you better. However you choose to take the Vow, you stand up for the voiceless.
