Support Rachel Corrie Rebuilding Campaign in Gaza

The Rachel Corrie Rebuilding Campaign in Gaza has been nominated for a GlobalGiving.com competition.

http://www.globalgiving.com/cb/gpf/...0/proj929a.html

People throughout the world can vote online and rate the entries they deem best. The Gaza project is one of only two in the Human Rights category. 15 semifinalists chosen through open ratings will present their work at the Global Philanthropy Forum on Borderless Giving in March, where three winners will share $100,000 in project grants.

The Rachel Corrie Rebuilding Campaign, a project of The Rebuilding Alliance, starts by building for the Nasrallahs, the family that Rachel Corrie stood to safeguard when she was killed by the Caterpillar D9R bulldozer sent to demolish their home.

Rachel's parents, Cindy and Craig Corrie, are on the board of directors of The Rebuilding Alliance. Cindy said of this Campaign, "We are rebuilding for this family to bring attention to the human tragedy that the Israeli occupation has caused in Gaza and to challenge it. We must keep rebuilding in Gaza to bring light to this place and to say 'no' to the outrageous assault on human rights that continues there -- conducted by the Israeli government and supported by U.S. tax dollars"

Dunno mate.. better than doing nothing i reckon...Rachel made the ultimate sacrifice so trying to raise profile of her legacy by posting here isnt much... a few people have read this thread, maybe read about the campaign, maybe voted, maybe told someone about it.. maybe thats the difference. Suppose we all have to start somewhere..

Its easier to light a candle than curse the darkness....
