#takethevow #iamsilent

Dear World!

Just letting you know I am doing a vow of silence tomorrow to raise awareness for all of the children and slaves who are silenced every day by poverty, disease and exploitation. I won’t stand by while children are subjected to exploitation, poverty and the denial of their basic rights. Every day, millions of children are silenced by these abuses. But we can take a stand for children everywhere.
I have decided I will use my voice in work meetings (as it is my duty to) but not outside of that time so if I do not respond to you tomorrow, this is why. I will also not be text messaging, e-mailing, tweeting or updating Facebook (gasp!).

If you want more information about what I am doing please visit: http://www.freethechildren.com/vowofsilence/
I will also be collecting donations for Free the Children tomorrow so if you have any spare change and want to give someone else the gift of education I would be happy to collect it from you (but no pressure).

#IC25 silence sleeps tonight

#IC25 #invisiblechildren

Right now, I am being silent for Invisible Children’s campaign 25. One hour of silence for each of the 25 years of war Central Africa has endured. We can stop this.

As a fairly theatrical person I have observed that I use my body so much more when I cannot use my voice. My gestures, my grunts and laughter, they are all amplified. Silence amps up our other tools for communication. I am grateful for my body and my literacy right now. They are both helping me communicate. I am sad that not everyone has this luxury. That is why I am doing this I suppose.

I am also enjoying listening. Absorbing information from other people and relishing in these moments of thoughtful reflection I am privy to.

One world. One peace.

We are the change. See you in the morning world.

25 HRS of Silence for 25 YRS of Conflict!

 

Wanna shut me up? Pledge me! I’ll be silent for 25 hours on APRIL 25th! I’ll also be accepting donations in person. Awesome, totally transparent cause!

All proceeds go to find the Invisible Children Protection Plan. BE THE CHANGE. Join me in going silent!
