LOOKING FOR EVENT VOLUNTEERS -
Musicians of All Ages -
We are inviting children and adults (and families and groups) to "share their talents" (like Mattie shared poetry) and Heartsongs by adding some music to the event! If you or your child/family would like to share a song (or two or three - voice and/or instrument) - please let us know. We will be creating an event line-up once we have all of our "musicians of all ages" organized. Each musician will receive a peace poster and Peace Activity Certificate from Mattie's Foundation.
Peace Guides (ages 12 and up) -
Mattie's Foundation will need a few "Peace Guide" volunteers for the event. These are folks who will help us with either a simple activity, or with engaging others in "peace conversation." We will offer you "talking points" from Mattie's peace message - you just need to help keep conversations going. Each Peace Guide will receive a peace poster and Peace Activity Certificate from Mattie's Foundation.
Peace Volunteers -
Mattie's Foundation will need a few folks to help with set-up and clean-up. Great chance for a family to work together for peace! Set-up will be 4:15-5 pm. Clean up will take place 6:45-7:30 pm. Each Peace Guide will receive a peace poster and Peace Activity Certificate from Mattie's Foundation.
PLEASE NOTE -
While we welcome all help on the day of the event,
you must send an e-mail and be a registered volunteer to receive a peace poster.
