How These 4 Individuals Are Making A Big Difference In The World

These people are showing us how to be more peaceful and kind.

February 23, 2018 is World Peace and Understanding Day. The first time World Peace and Understanding Day was celebrated was back in 1905. To honor this day, we want to recognize these amazing people that have found a way to spread peace and kindness around the world. They all have unique ideas that are worth mentioning. To find how to join or help them, keep reading below!


1) Kids For Peace

Kids for Peace revolves around what Ghandi said, "If we wish to create a lasting peace, we must begin with the children." For 12 years, Jill McManigal and Danielle Gram have joined together with kids to spread peace in the world. Since their start, they have been able to include over 10 million children in their programs, they have completed over 500 million acts of kindness, two schools have been built in Kenya and Pakistan, and have gotten 121 countries on board in the movement. McManigal believes children are the key to make the world a better place, and she hopes that this organization can make a big difference in the world.

2) Peace One Day

Jeremy Gilley is an independent documentary filmmaker. One day, he realized that there was no official Peace Day. So, he made it his mission to make it happen. The UN adopted September 21st as International Peace Day. Gilley's next goal was to stop violence in areas of war, like Afghanistan. With the UN's help, Gilley was able to make peace in Afghanistan in 2007. His efforts are still in effect to make Peace One Day a worldwide event.

3) I Talk To Strangers

Robbie Stokes Jr. believes that in order to understand others in our communities and the world we have to start talking to each other. The more you talk to different people the more you learn from them and their struggles. This can lead to making a difference in not just stranger's lives but in the world, too

4) Pray 4 Peace

After 9/11, Al Forte started his Pray 4 Peace movement. His motivation is his desire for the world to be a better place for his eight grandchildren. He likes knowing that he has made a difference in the lives of those with relatives in the armed forces and those who lost someone in 9/11. He wants to continue making a difference in the world by bringing awareness and peace in his travels.
