You know your handmade bones will help raise awareness about genocide and other mass atrocities through your participation in the Road to Washington bone installations on April 28 – and in the installation of one million bones on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. next year.
Did you also know that your handmade bones can generate $500,000 for CARE International to help rebuild lives in Somalia and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), two nations torn by violence and conflict?
Here’s How: In partnership with One Million Bones, Students Rebuild is challenging students worldwide to make bones, as a symbol of solidarity with victims and survivors of ongoing conflict in places like the DRC and Somalia. When you register your student team with Students Rebuild, every bone you make generates a $1 donation from the Bezos Family Foundation. Every penny goes to CARE to support relief and rebuilding programs that directly benefit young people.
Learn More & Connect. With our partners at the Global Nomads Group, Students Rebuild offers students an opportunity to connect directly to young people and relief workers in the DR Congo through webcasts, interactive video conferences and field blogs.
Rebuild, Together. By joining forces with CARE, we can equip young leaders and their families with the resources they need to peacefully rebuild their communities. Make a bone for peace. Make a bone for hope and healing. Make a bone to show our connectedness. Be sure to make your bones count: Register here.
What is Students Rebuild? Students Rebuild is a collaborative initiative of the Bezos Family Foundation that inspires young people to connect, learn and take action on critical global issues. Since its genesis in January, 2010, Students Rebuild has mobilized thousands of young people in 38+ countries and all 50 U.S. states, and raised more than $1 million in matching funds for rebuilding schools in Haiti and youth facilities in Japan. This current challenge is a collaboration between One Million Bones, the Bezos Family Foundation, CARE and Global Nomads Group.
