The think PEACE Network, Stand-Up For International Peace, Comedians For Peace and Musicians For International Peace are dedicated to the Idea of WORLD PEACE!
Peace will not happen overnight, but it is up to those who can dream of a peaceful world to begin a non-violent revolution of ideas.
World peace starts with peace in our homes, in our neighborhoods, in our villages, in our cities and extends beyond all political borders.
We must teach ourselves and our children that World Peace Is Possible and a natural part of mankind's advancement.

thinkPEACE.net Stands with Ukraine
As Ukrainians fight for their freedom from Russian aggression and domination, they are courageously standing up for all democracies worldwide! Their heroism is highlighting the importance of many things we take for granted and redefining why freedom is worth fighting for. Freedom of speech, voting rights, free and fair elections (unlike Russia), rule of international law, and limiting propaganda and hate groups are among the critical protections from dictatorships.
If you can give to a charity to help Ukrainians, any amount helps. Here are a few verified good charities to consider:
UKRAIN HUMINTARIAN FUND (UN)
INTERNATIONAL RESCUE COMMITTEE
WORLD FOOD PROGRAMME (UN)
If you can recommend any other verified charities helping Ukrainians, please let us know.
