Build Bridges of Peace - One Life at a Time



OUR MISSION:

To raise awareness for peace and love through music and the arts;

To help children whose lives have been affected by war and poverty;

To support other 501(C) 3 charities to help those whose lives have been affected by war or poverty.

Bridges of Peace is an inclusive organization that invites everyone to get involved with it's mission. Our mission is a simple one: to open hearts through a strong message of love. Our goal is to build Bridges of Peace between people through our charity projects and music events.

Through our charity project, "Help a Child through a Soldier Drive", we invite volunteers to sponsor drives by collecting items for children to be sent to our U.S. military in war torn countries who distribute them to the local children.

Through our Music events, "Bridges of Peace Jam", we feel The ?Power Of Music? is so great that it can move people to new ways of thinking. We wish to reach the souls of people through music. The artists are the ones to reach them and open their hearts; we are just the ones to put them all together for a unified purpose of love, peace and kind works of charity.

Bridges of Peace is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Public Charity Organization.

Working to Build Bridges of Peace between all people - One Life at a Time








Vision

To promote an understated way of being. To conform to love not a volatile compromise.

We wish to propagate the idea to put love at the forefront of every issue. When a person is confronted with hard times and abuse, one must learn to connect to the love within to change the state of things.

Peace can be achieved only when we as human beings understand that all the world's inhabitants have a special and unique place in the scheme of life.

We wish to spread this knowledge that life is so important. All of our family is important. Every color, sex and ethnicity is to be honored for we are one family together experiencing Life.

Violence is not the answer to end conflict. Whether it be in the home or abroad in war. We wish to teach and foster this idea to everyone we can. We hope to bring about a change in the hearts of many who claim to seek a just solution with the use of force as a solution.

Life is dear and without Love, it is meaningless.

We pray that through our work we can reach the heart of those who did not know peace existed. We pray that the artists through their love can touch the souls of those who need it most.

Make Peace through Love, the Rain to the Drought.
