Inspired to help create a Livable

Message from Rick Ulfik, Executive Director of We, The World
$1 million isn't much of a budget for an average company or even a moderate-sized
non-profit org. But used wisely it could make it possible for the world's
leading international movements and millions of individuals and smaller groups
to work together on specific issues. These coordinated coalitions could
generate mainstream political will and create the major cultural shift needed
for lasting change and a Livable Future.
We, The World has many of the Strategic
Alliances needed and has already begun international organizing with
programs like 11 Days of Global
Unity. which had over 700 associated events in September 2006. It
has taken us many years to get to this point. Now YOU can help accelerate
the process at this critical point in our collective history!
With your financial support
and forwarding this email to the "right" people, here's what $1 million
could accomplish within 2 years:
Vision For Change
Imagine 1000's of organizations and businesses
that work for peace and sustainability establishing such collaborative working
relationships and being so well linked around the world that a success in
one region is soon modeled in dozens of others!
Imagine those organizations participating
in multi-country events that take place several times a year, with substantial
mainstream and independent media coverage, in which visionaries, activists,
artists, celebrities, diplomats, socially responsible business leaders, forward
thinking government officials, and the general public come together to celebrate,
share information and take action regarding issues that affect the whole
Now imagine after each event thousands of
new people get involved, and, with expanding media coverage, soon millions
swell the ranks (and the bank accounts!) of non-profit peace and environmental
organizations and sustainable businesses worldwide - transforming society
and themselves, consciously and collectively using their buying power, their
voting power and their people power to move us visibly toward a world
that works for all!
There's only one catch. This can only happen if YOU get involved!
"Those who love peace must learn to organize as effectively
as those who love war."
Many thanks to all who responded to our New Year's message Do You Want
A Livable Future? It's up to YOU this New Year! Your contributions are
helping us implement our planned programs
this year. But to realistically address the urgent global crisis we face,
we need to go much further, faster!

YOU Give For a Livable Future?
Scientists around the world have concluded that unless extraordinary measures
are taken now, Global Climate Change
and the Mass
Extinction of Species (at least 10 per day) will become irreversible
with devastating consequences even in the wealthiest countries. But escalating
militarism and violence are draining massive amounts of funds, resources and
the human spirit needed to address these and the other crises that affect
everyone on the planet.
And even if somehow the huge obstacles disappear to allow the Kyoto Accord,
the U.N. Millennium Development Goals, the Clinton Global Initiative and
other major efforts to accomplish their objectives, the underlying reasons
for this rush towards global collapse will still be there.
Beyond emergency measures to avert the Climate, Extinction and other urgent
crises, what's needed is a major cultural shift, especially in the
wealthiest countries. We, The World has begun this strategy with an incredible
and ever-expanding global Strategic
Alliances to create the needed tipping point of support
for humanity taking a new direction - away from what Advisory Board member
Riane Eisler calls Dominator Culture (and it's impending collapse)
and toward Partnership Culture.
Will you help us raise $1 million dollars for a Livable Future???
