Friends Without Borders

In this public service announcement, Friends Without Borders explains how they offer solutions to the global tensions existing in our world today: they seek to connect children with one another, heart-to-heart, on a global scale. This new generation might then, quite possibly, help grow the world into a warmer, friendlier home for us all.

From the website:

All across India, tens of thousands of children have begun writing heartfelt letters to the students in Pakistan. All across Pakistan, tens of thousands of children are replying with heartfelt letters back. New connections are being made. New friendships are being formed.

Imagine if all the schools from both nations were to participate? What will happen when this generation grows up?

At Friends Without Borders, we are making this possible, and invite you and your school to take part in this historic heart-to-heart experiment.

Children have a natural instinct toward friendship and will jump to reach out and create new friends, when given the opportunity. The simple act of writing a letter leaves deep and lasting impressions that help to humanize 'the other.' These are the seeds that promise to mature into a safer, friendlier world.

Welcome to our campaign... so simple, it just might work!

Maybe, just maybe…
