Fund This: "Voices From Laos" Speakers Tour

From 1964 to 1973, the U.S. dropped more than two million tons of ordnance on Laos during 580,000 bombing missions, all part of what's known today as "The Secret War." This makes Laos the most heavily bombed country per capita in history.

40 years after the bombing campaign ended, children and families are still maimed and killed by bombs that dropped but did not explode. Legacies of War is a nonprofit organization in the U.S. trying to fund "Voices from Laos," a tour of educational speakers advocating for a bomb-free Laos. Help fund this tour. They need $3,000 by April 15th to make this happen. Here's more information:

2013 will be the 40th anniversary since the end of the bombing campaign in Laos, yet children and families continue to be maimed and killed from them. Help Legacies of War, an advocacy nonprofit organization, work towards a legacy of peace and hope through the Voices from Laos educational speakers tour across the U.S., which kicks off in April.

Women for Peace & Hope in Laos, a group of philanthropists, invite you to commemorate the significance of this anniversary by donating to Legacies of War with just a click on the link below.

Any amount will help. Please share with your friends and family.

Let’s make this happen by April 15, 2013; right in time for Lao New Year!
